The service first requires a bank customer to link their current account with their mobile number, this enables payments to be sent directly to that account with just a phone number for reference. To send funds, you can download the free Barclays Pingit app (available on iOS, Android and BlackBerry) or sign-up receive mobile transfers by registering online. Each transaction is protected by a five-digit passcode, which is set by you, and payments can be between £1 and £300 with a maximum of £5,000 per day.

From a commenter on our story:

JClarkKT6: The app crashed twice while trying to register it, and of course there’s a queue on their telephone support line. Forgive me for not trusting Barclays to pull this off properly - I’ll stick with Paypal which does essentially the same thing, and worked right the first time I tried it…

Anyone else tried it and got a similar response? Reblog with your thoughts…
