Remember when you went to your corner bank branch to do all your banking? We have a better idea – put your bank branch in your pocket. ING DIRECT just launched its mobile app for iPhone and Blackberry, and I thought you might like a sneak peak before it’s shared with Customers next week. The app makes banking simple by providing Customers with the all the essential features needed to save on the go:

  • Person2Person Payments: let’s Customers quickly and easily send money to existing contacts in their P2P address book
  • Account Summary: displays all of the Customer’s accounts and account details like account number, balance, and transaction summary and details
  • Transfer Money: allows Customers to transfer money between their Electric Orange, Orange Savings, and linked external checking accounts
  • Bill Pay: Customers can manage their Bill Pay preferences already established through the web site
  • Refer a Friend: much like referring friends via the website, mobile users are able to send a referral email from the palm of their hand
  • Flip for Fun (iPhone only): turning the iPhone sideways provides one touch access to all of ING DIRECT’s social media efforts – Facebook, Twitter, We the Savers, and YouTube

We think Savers should be able to bank from any corner. So, we’re holding a “Bank From Any Corner” contest from July 28th – August 27th. Participation from your community couldn’t be easier:

All you need to do is submit a photo or video of yourself showing us the coolest/craziest place that you can bank from with the new mobile app. The grand prize winner will receive $10,000. Second place will receive $5,000; Third place will receive $2,500; and 17 runners-up will receive an iPod Touch.

Contest info can be found here:
