ING Direct Launches iPhone App in Canada

Looks like Canadian banking on the iPhone is getting popular nowadays. CIBC was one of the first banks to launch a full featured iPhone app, but yesterday ING Direct Canada launched iPhone and Blackberry apps simultaneously. This means if you’re an ING Direct customer, you’ll be able to do the following:

• Check your Account balances.
• Review your transactions.
• Move your money any time you want.
• Get directions and hours of operation for the ING DIRECT Save Your Money Cafes.
• Find ABM locations and get access to your Canadian and US Funds.
• Follow us on Twitter to talk savings or find out what ING DIRECT events are coming up or for insight into the life of our President & CEO, Peter Aceto.

ING Direct is known for operating exclusively online with limited branches. This iPhone app only makes sense for them.

Scotiabank has an iPhone app that can only find ATM branches. RBC has an optimized website. TD, Bank of Montreal, and HSBC might want to get their mobile apps going sometime. How popular will mobile banking become? With the increase of smartphones and data plans becoming accessible to everyone, it will definitely grow. Why be constrained to your computer for banking when your iPhone can do it all?

Do you currently do some form of mobile banking?
