Geezeo and Mobile Banking

If you haven't had the chance - you should check out Geezeo. They are in beta with an account aggregation tool that is designed to be accessed via your mobile phone. Yes - I know that account aggregation hasn't taken off the way many vendors thought, but it's a very useful tool none the less.

The idea is obviously that you tell Geezeo where all of your accounts, loans, and credit cards are located. Then, when you send them an SMS message they return the balance information for all the accounts to your cell phone. It's really slick because it eliminates the need to log into 6 different places to simply check a balance. I was a little disappointed that they didn't support IE 6 or my Blackberry browser, but they did a good job disclosing which browsers they support from the beginning. Plus, they note that more browsers will be added soon. Once in the system, I was quickly able to pull in a few of my accounts, but did run into a hurdle or two on the others.

All in all a very neat product that I look forward to testing again once it's out of beta. Check it out!
