Mobile Banking Updates - Jan 10

Vendors Give Browser-Based Mobile Banking Apps a Facelift
"Banking applications for iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry and other mobile devices are growing fast, but not all consumers are keen to download specialized apps from their bank. Some prefer to bank using just a web browser on their device.

ComScore, a firm that measures digital commerce, says that in the first half of 2011, mobile app usage for banking information increased from 8.7 million users to 12.7 million users. Browser usage for banking information increased at a slower rate, but is still larger than the app market-expanding from 15.4 million to 17.5 million users."

E*TRADE Launches Mobile Deposit for iPhone(R)
"E*TRADE Financial Corporation ETFC today announced that E*TRADE Securities LLC has introduced mobile deposit for iPhone, enabling customers to electronically deposit checks to their brokerage or E*TRADE Bank accounts remotely with the use of their iPhone camera."

IBC Bank Enhances Its Mobile Banking Offerings
"IBC Bank has expanded its mobile banking program by adding Bill Pay functionality to IBC Mobile. The service is accessible via www.ibc.mobi from any device that can connect to the Web -- including all Androids, Blackberries, and iPhones. The added technology launched this week and is a convenient alternative to the downloadable apps currently available that are uniquely designed for the operating systems of specific mobile devices."

Small local bank plays big in mobile world
"Kourtney Houle is a doctor of family medicine. She also has two children younger than the age of 2 — a 16-month-old and a 7-week-old. The combination keeps her pretty busy. That’s why she appreciates the capabilities of mobile banking. 'You learn to multitask when you’re holding a baby and trying to cook dinner,' said Houle, whose family recently took out a loan to build a home in St. Augusta. 'I can make a payment on my phone and look up anything on our other accounts. Anything that can make life easier, I’m on board with.'”
