Barclays introduces Pingit - Mobile Banking app that lets you transfer money via text
"Barclays have release a mobile banking app called Pingit for BlackBerry smartphones. While a lot banks have been releasing apps where you can view your bank balance as well as transfer money, you could only do this between your own accounts. The Barclays Pingit app goes a step further and allows you to send money to other Barclay customers as well as non-Barclay customers. Better yet transfering money is as easy as sending a text."

Intuit Releases iPad Banking App
"This week Intuit Financial Services announced the availability of its iPad application for banking. Banks and credit unions can offer the app to their customers under their own brand names through the Apple iTunes store. The Intuit Tablet Banking app for the iPad is similar to the company's mobile banking offerings for smartphones, but it takes advantage of the iPad's large screen by offering more robust graphics and interactivity."

The Data Digest: Mobile Banking Uptake
"The New York Times recently published an article based on a Forrester report (Mobile Is The New Face Of Engagement) about the uptake of smartphones worldwide in the years to come. And for 2011 it was estimated that just under 500 million smartphones were shipped. Knowing the drivers behind the growth of smartphones gives businesses confidence in mobile technology investment — even when uptake is currently still limited."
