BB&T: Continuing Education
BB&T's iPad app, which launched in January 2011, offers a wealth of financial education resources, as well as information about the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based bank, to existing and potential clients. It also provides the ability to open new accounts. Beyond offering tablet-optimized online banking functions such as checking balances, transferring funds, paying bills and signing up for alerts, the app offers an extensive library of financial articles for reading on the iPad and includes interactive financial planning calculators. It also uses GPS technology to help customers find BB&T financial centers or ATMs.
