Huntington Bank (Columbus, Ohio, $52 billion in total assets) this week announced the launch of its iPad app for mobile banking. The bank said the move is part of its overall strategy to make banking more digitally accessible for its customers.

The app allows Huntington customers to search for branches or ATMs and contact a customer support rep, as well as pay bills, transfer funds and view real-time account balances if they are already enrolled in online banking.

The app was developed by Huntington's digital development center in Columbus using mobile tech vendor Kony Solutions' (Orlando) app platform provider.

"Our customers will eventually touch mobile devices, including tablets, more often than a physical branch or an ATM," said Jeff Dennes, Huntington’s online and mobile services director, in a prepared statement. "We want to make that experience consistent across all our mobile channels and ensure it’s the best it can possibly be."
