Mobile Banking Updates - Apr 4

ING Direct launches BlackBerry, iPhone app
"ING Direct has launched a free mobile-banking application for the BlackBerry and iPhone, the direct bank announced Wednesday. The app will allow users to check their account balances and transfer funds on the go using wireless 3G technology. 'Offering our clients the option of saving anywhere is an exciting frontier,' ING Direct Canada President and CEO Peter Aceto said in a statement. IDC Canada senior analyst Rob Burbach recently told QMI that mobile banking would be a natural progression for a company like ING since they have no retail branches and account holders are already accustomed to moving their money online."
