Chase bank today unveiled a free mobile application for its customers — such as time-starved business owners — who use Android phones. Chase joins several other banks such as Bank of America and Citi that recently have started offering services via smartphone.
Chase, which already has a similar iPhone app, says people with Androids now can download the new application to track account activity, locate the nearest bank, deposit checks, transfer funds between Chase accounts, pay bills and credit cards, talk to service representatives and send wire transfers to or from non-Chase accounts in the U.S.
“Both apps fit with today’s mobile lifestyle, helping customers manage their financial lives through their mobile device and through Chase,” said Jack Stephenson, Chase’s managing director of mobile, e-commerce and payments.
People can download the application by searching “Chase Mobile” in the Android Market and clicking “Install.”
