Astra App Will Shut Down Later this Year
The Astra app has been a useful tool when it comes to bank bonuses. It often works to fulfill the direct deposit requirement, and you can set recurring transfers between banks accounts.
But Astra has announced now that it will soon shut down. December 14, 2022 will be the last day to process transactions, and starting on January 4th, 2023, users will no longer be able to login into the mobile application.
Here’s the full email that was sent out to current users:
We founded Astra in 2016 to bring automation and ease to our collective financial lives. Along the way, we ended up building a powerful payments platform that helps consumers and businesses move money to the right place, at the right time, as fast as possible. Last year we made those capabilities available to developers through our API and have grown the Astra ecosystem to an amazing set of partners and fintech customers – you can now leverage our automation and transfer technology through your Astra profile in dozens of applications and products, with many more still to come!This evolution of our business, has also meant we have had to shift our priorities from providing transfer capabilities through our beta application to enabling other companies to successfully leverage that technology through our API. As of January 4th, 2023, we will no longer support our existing mobile application or any transfers originating from the beta app. As this change approaches, there are several other applications that include similar functionality that you can check out:
