The first app ever released by a state banking association, IBAT2GO's Legal Ease section will help banks community banks access important compliance information from the convenience of their mobile devices, IBAT said in a statement. The association said that this will help community banks deal with the challenges they face in today's changing financial services regulations. The app also contains sections on news and a schedule of IBAT events, and provides information on legislative issues regarding financial services that the association is working on.

"IBAT realizes that Texas community bankers are extremely busy and often on the go.
