Re: The Web should be for content, not code
"I get it that banks (for example) want people to trust their phone apps. It's a trade-off: fewer bank staff but a bit more fraud. Its not in their interest for people to realise that installing the bank app is a risk because the bank does not control what else is on their phone/pocket computer."
Disregarding bank apps, there's the question of banks and email security. As things stand banks prefer to train their customers to fail at email security rather than to take care. As long as they do that I wouldn't trust a mobile app from any of them. A stack of twenties under the mattress seems way more secure and, given current interest rates, not expensive.
