Finally!!! The largest bank in America; Bank of America has finally got a feature to remotely deposit checks to your bank using your Android device. Several other banks already had this feature for a while, but the latest update for Bank of America, which was rolled out today, now allows users to deposit checks using their mobile phones or tablets.
While several other banks like Chase already had this feature for ages, BofA was the only bank which did not have it. Today’s update to the Bank of America app adds the following features:
– Make check deposits
– Choose the BankAmeriDeals™ you want, and earn cash back
– Receive Bank of America Alerts as push notifications
– Securely send money to others, using their mobile number or email address (requires enrollment)
I am definitely happy with this update because it was definitely becoming a pain lugging around those checks to an ATM or bank branch just to deposit. Finally, I can now deposit checks to Bank of America while I am lazing around in my house.
You can get the latest features by updating the app on your device or by download it from Google Play.
Mobile banking in India is slowly catching up as various service providers are tie-ing up different banks in order to provide banking services to their customers right on their finger tips. Reliance communications also announced the launch of it’s mobile banking services for its GSM subscribers.
This mobile banking service is in collaboration with the State Bank of India(SBI) which means as of now only those customers having an active banking account with State Bank of India will be able to use the mobile banking facility on Reliance. These facilities include account balance enquiry, mini statement, fund transfer, cheque book issuance, mobile recharge and bill payment at any time just by using a mobile phone.
The best part is customers are not required to download any specific application in order to access the banking services on their phones. However, users be required to register for the services with SBI, after which the services will be commenced by the bank. All users have to do is just dial *595# on their phone which will show simple menu choices on the screen and users are required to key in their choices.
