If you really need to send cash abroad as fast as possible, having so many banking apps at your disposal can aggravate your decision. We’re here to help.
Every now and then, we need to send money overseas for all kinds of reasons both personal and business-related. Usually, the banks offer an international transfer option, but anyone who has ever tried it, has finally come to understand that the process involves various complicated steps and the amount of money you plan on sending will need longer time to get to the desired destination. Also, the fees involved are not man’s best friend.
Fortunately, there are more ways of sending money abroad thanks to the mobile apps – a quick and easy way of sending and receiving payments.
Here’s out top 5 favorite apps for sending money around the globe:
This mobile transfer application was originally intended only for Barclay’s customers, but afterwards it has been extended to include most of the building societies and banks. The app links your mobile number, allowing you to send up to £2,000 a day in over 35 countries. Pingit is available for iPhone, Android and Windows phones.
Azimo boasts the widest reach of any service, enabling transfers to over 190 countries. It offers considerable savings in comparison to high street banks. You have 270,000 cash pick up locations at your disposal around the whole world. Currently, Azimo has implemented a new in-app mobile feature, and all you have to do in order to send money is to know the number of the recipient.
TransferWise is a highly rated app that is eight times cheaper than a high street bank as it doesn’t have a mark-up on the exchange rate.

You can use this service online or as a mobile app for iPhone and Android in 125 countries. It includes instant digital transfers, mobile airtime top-ups and cash pick-ups.
