Today I downloaded the Schwab app and Chase Bank app to my Droid. So far, I am impressed and happy with the apps.
As you all know, I am a fan of automation and putting things in one place. If you set up a fire and forget system, like Mint.com and other Personal Finance Arsenal tools, you can minimize the time you put into your financial management.
But what about when you are on vacation? As a blogger, I don’t think I would ever travel without some sort of laptop, but my smart phone can be used for almost everything I need now. To save a few pounds in my luggage, I am considering trying a trip without the laptop.
I don’t really trust hotel computers for my finance needs, so what if I need to do more than use Mint to check my balances? What if something comes up where I need to trade a stock or transfer money around?
Thanks to Charles Schwab, that concern is now void.
I don’t mean for this to be a commercial for Schwab, but I am new to mobile banking and investing and I am very happy with the results so far.
Have you used a mobile banking app? Has it made a big impact in your financial life?
