Huntington: Wherever You Go, There You Are
Columbus, Ohio-based Huntingtonreleased its iPad app in November 2011. According to Jeff Dennes, Huntington's online and mobile services director, the bank wanted to take advantage of the unique opportunities of the tablet and produce a mobile experience optimized for that device. He also says Huntington was the first bank of its size to release an iPad-specific app. The app, developed using a Kony Solutions (Orlando, Fla.) platform, features integration with Google Maps for finding ATM and branch locations. It uses the iPad's GPS to help guide customers to locations. Customers who already are using online banking also can pay bills and transfer funds from their iPads.
