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. With the app, banking customers can perform a number of tasks with a series of taps and slides of the finger, including viewing account balances and transaction history, transferring funds, paying bills, locating ATMs and more.
"Consumers are more mobile than ever and that's changing how they access their banking information on a day-to-day basis via a multitude of devices," said CeCe Morken, senior vice president and general manager of Intuit Financial Services, in an announcement of the app release. "We understand the wide technology needs of consumers who want financial information at their fingertips, whether at home, on the go, or at work. By expanding our offerings, we’re helping banks and credit unions better serve some of their most active customers."
