    If it's from Google play store it should be safe.
    The danger comes when you get the apk from a sketchy source or its been converted to a .bar for you already since you don't know what may have been added or changed in the the code such as a backdoor.

    I've been using the Android version of the CIBC app (Canadian bank) for the additional functionality it provides with no issues.

    I've been using two from the Amazon app store and I've had no issues. I think it's safe.

    If in doubt get the app directly from the bank's own website.

    for example:
