      I don't think I would trust something like this myself for atleast a while to be sure it was safe. You hear alsorts about mobile phones being gained access to through people using free wifi spots that it does make you wonder if having something like this on your phone would be safe.

      Only way people can gain access via wifi is if you don't hide your phone

      I know the Japanese have been using this for awhile now. But I would never use it.

      I think it's a good idea, as this way we won't need to use money and waste paper. We also can't lose money the way usual money would be lost or destroyed; I think it's another step into the future.

      I've now got the NatWest iPhone app installed and set up ready for use.
