Mobile Banking: Bigger Than I Thought…
"An early adopter of my bank’s mobile app, I have to admit that I really am not what you would consider a ‘power user’. While I enjoy the convenience of checking account balances from my iPhone, I really have not taken advantage of all of the features and services now available, which is somewhat surprising since I despise the process of visiting a bank, even to use an ATM."

Mobile banking to hit 1B users by 2017: study - Mobile Commerce Daily
"Mobile banking is expected to grow at a global compound annual rate of 18 percent to eventually reach one billion consumers in the next five years, according to a new study from Juniper Research. Juniper’s “Mobile Banking: Handset & Tablet Market Strategies 2013 – 2017” report looks at how mobile banking is spreading in both developed and underdeveloped countries. Overall, the report points to the growing maturity in the space over the past year."

Corporate Mobile Banking Offers On-the-Go Management Control System, But Enterprises Remain Wary

This, despite online corporate banking offering executives "anytime, anywhere" management control functions, including viewing cash position in near real-time, approving payments and receiving alerts. Global Information Inc (GII) presents highlights from new market research on corporate mobile banking from our premium research partner Mercator Advisory Group, Inc. These reports individually and collectively offer valuable insights on the direction of the payments industry, both in relation to online corporate banking and out into extended applications of the technology."

Do What You Do: Capital One Touts Mid-Mobile Banking Multitasking
"The flurry of mobile banking ads lately is no accident. Just like every other business, banks have figured out that consumers are on the go — and connected — all the time. Banks are already scrambling to get their piece of the mobile payments market, and now mobile banking apps are the latest new thing. A slew of campaigns are featuring the ease of mobile banking, with banks such as Barclays expanding mobile. Bank of America says, 'Life is mobile. So is your bank.' Chase calls mobile banking, 'The power of Chase in the palm of your hand.'"

Mobile banking demand drives app development innovation
"Barclays bank says its decision touse private cloud and Linux will help it cut development costs and compete in the mobile banking sector. This year banks will invest in mobile banking platforms as the business case for these investments becomes easier to make in the light of increasing demand. Over a billion people will use mobile handsets to access banking services by the end of 2017, according to the results of a study by Juniper Research."
