at least it did not hit me, as my bank can do business without app,
they offered a small photoTAN device and still allow mobileTAN
via SMS as second factor.

It would be good to know in which country of residence you are.

Some general advise (which you probably have tried as well):
 * Some banks do not know which standard they are actually using,
   maybe some offer something a general app from can do.
 * The Auora Store app from can help to download
   apks from the play-store without account. This can be helpful
   in some cases.
 * Safety net maybe required by some apps (thought this does not
   make that much sense,
   can hide that a phone is rooted to try to get make that check
   (However that did not work last time I've tried.)
