Mobile Banking Updates - May 19

Mobile banking uptake rises
"The uptake of mobile banking services is increasing as consumers seek to better monitor their finances, according to research. More than half (52 per cent) of 1,000 UK consumers polled by Monilink and The Future Foundation are checking their bank balances via their mobile phone more often – a usage increase of 10 per cent since October 2008."

Mobile banking: You’re either in, or you’re out (May 09)
"Despite numerous formats and options, it’s relatively easy to hop aboard the mobile banking bus. No time like the present. You’ll likely be forced to do it defensively anyway. For a variety of reasons—technical, demographic, economic—there is now a great deal of interest in, and growing usage of, mobile devices for banking. Most of that use is still informational, like balance checking."

PayPal Mobile Update
"Eric Duprat from PayPal’s mobile team with a quick update. It looks like Android users in the US love the new PayPal application that launched last week. It’s received 4 out of 5 stars and jumped to the top 20 of finance apps within just two days of its launch."

MasterCard Is Pushing Mobile Money
"MasterCard (MA) is promoting a tempting new offer: Instead of using checks or wire transfers to send money, U.S. customers can soon text the funds directly to another person through their cell phones. Dubbed MoneySend, the new service promises to 'make it faster, simpler, and more convenient for people to send money to each other using the MasterCard network,'"
