The UK’s Open Banking Implementation Entity (OBIE) has launched an official App Store to showcase all the financial services apps which are currently using Open Banking APIs.

It looks to solve one of the industry’s biggest challenges of showing all the great work which is being done, and how solutions are solving problems.

So far 54 apps can be found in the listing, ranging from Barclays banking app through to lender Iwoca and savings app MoneyBox, with more due to be added each week.

With the number of banks and fintechs offering Open Banking-enabled products growing so rapidly, deciphering the advantages of each product can seem daunting,” said the OBIE’s ecosystem development director David Beardmore.
