The most notable change, though, is an entirely new interface. When you first open the redesigned app, you’re presented with a new start screen that offers the ability to quickly manage your balance, see recent activity, send money, request money, and quickly pay in-store. The activity feed has been redesigned, as well, and now shows activity as far back as three years ago.

The ability to send/request money has been streamlined with it being much easier to quickly find a contact from your Contacts app or enter a new one. You simply choose a contact, enter the amount, and send the money. When you request money, the person on the other end can now pay you with just a single tap.

The full changelog is below. The big story is obviously the redesigned interface. The app is available on the Play Store for free.
