App Overview

Skrill's app is probably the most unique of the apps reviewed by FXcompared, as it can be used for more than transferring money internationally. Skrill is more of a "lifestyle" app, operating as a mobile wallet and even gives users access to popular gaming and gambling sites.

App Specifics

Users must register with Skrill before using the app. Sending money via the app is intuitive, with payments easily made after card information is stored. You can also upload bank account information to transfer directly from your bank account. Skrill conveniently offers the option to create a passcode for the app, which allows users to login with a 5 digit code, rather than their email and password every time they use the app. After reviewing so many apps, FXcompared was happy to have the option of a digital passcode in order to access the app.

Unique Features of Skrill App

  • Send and receive payments in over 40 currencies and over 200 countries
  • Mobile wallet capabilities allow users to upload money and check balances quickly and easily
  • Create a unique passcode to quickly access the app
  • Access gaming sites via the app

Ideal Users

Skrill's app is ideal for those who have other friends using the Skrill app, as payments can be easily made. It is also a convenient way to pay for things for users who enjoy mobile wallets.

The Skrill Mobile App is available on the App Store and the Play Store
