Hello Staxxers!

The Stax app just got a makeover!

But first, a short recap…

We built Stax as an offline mobile app to give a desperately-needed makeover to USSD’s drab interface. With Stax, you get the opportunity to leverage USSD banking in a more seamless and automated way.

Now, thanks to your feedback and engagement, we’ve redesigned the home screen to ensure Stax looks and operates better on your mobile.

The new home screen design offers better accessibility, faster transactions, and an improved experience while using the Stax app.

What Else Is New On Stax App?

TLDR

  • Bottom navigation now includes Home, History, and Dial USSD codes.
  • The transaction buttons have been moved above the accounts, making it easier to transact when you open the Stax app.
  • In addition, settings were moved from the bottom navigation to the top right corner of the app for easy access.
  • You can delete an account (bank or MoMo) and remove all transaction data/history from Stax.
  • Financial advice is even slicker.
Bottom navigation now includes Home, History, and Dial USSD codes.

We discovered that the previous home screen design did not assist users in discovering the app’s features and full functionality. So, the bottom navigation was upgraded to include Home, History, and Dial USSD (the USSD directory) to make transaction history much more accessible.

For example, if you tap on the “History” button on the new home screen, you can see all the transactions you have made using an account, and contacts you have received or sent money to. You also have access to thousands of USSD codes in Africa.

Settings were moved from the bottom navigation to the top right corner of the app for easy access.

For easier access, settings were moved from the bottom navigation to the top right corner of the app. By clicking on settings, you access more features like connecting your accounts, managing permissions, Stax Support, security details, language personalization and much more.

The transaction buttons have been moved above the accounts, making it easier to take the next steps on Stax.

We also moved transaction buttons above accounts to make sure you know what you can do with Stax (send money, pay bills, buy airtime, buy goods, request money).

We’re excited about this change because it will make it easier for our users to get what they want without having to dig deep into the app.
