[Updated with Screenshots] BMO Mobile Banking Site Launched, iPhone App Coming April

This week, Bank of Montreal (BMO) has launched a mobile banking website where users can access their account, pay bills, find branches, and more.

BMO Mobile Banking

BMO customers will be happy to know that the new BMO mobile site makes banking much easier. While you can still log in from the main BMO site, the mobile site is much faster.

With the BMO mobile site, customers can check their balances across multiple accounts and also review transactions such as deposits, payments, and much more.

Users can also make account transfers such as moving funds and locate bank branches and ABM’s. Basically anything you can do at the regular BMO account site, you can do here.

You can check out the mobile site here: http://m.bmo.com/

We also received news that BMO is launching an iOS app in April. This should make BMO online banking even better! The BMO app, once released, will join other bank apps such TD, Scotiabank, RBC, and CIBC.

Update 2: We just received some updated information and screenshots of this upcoming app from BMO’ Senior Manager of Digital Strategy, Pritesh Ghandi:

  • The planned launch is April – date TBD (not April 1st).
  • There will be an iPhone app, and a Blackberry launcher app. Android launcher app will follow in a later release. And mobile banking will be accessible from any other web-enabled device.
  • Similar to BMO Online Banking, customers can transfer money instantly between their bank accounts and MasterCards or Lines of Credit. We’ll also be adding features in the coming months, such as alerts from bank accounts and bill payments from mobile devices.
