We thought we’d give you an update, eight months following this major announcement from the leading French bank.

This is it.  Credit Agricole’s CA Store officially opened.


You will find below some key stats from launch. 

Key Stats

  • 19 Apps
  • 24 Ideas
  • 5 Platforms
    iOS (33), Android (26), WebApp (11), Windows 8 (8), Windows Phone (9)
  • 8 Categories
    Budget (28), Business (2), Travel (2), News (4), Savings (13), Games (3), Educative (2), Utility (20)
  • 5 ‘Authors’ (apps developers)
    Third parties, Credit Agricole Group, CA Corsica, CA Lorraine, CA Midi Pynerees

So now, Credit Agricole’s open innovation and open banking initiative is more than a concept.  It is a reality.  And with Axa Banque’s own app store which is about to officially launch and ING’s recent announcement, the French bank might has started a key trend in the worldwide banking industry.

But how receptive will their customers be?  And how many third parties will demonstrate their commitment to the CA Store and be prepared to invest resources in building apps which usage might just never take off significantly?
