Early last fall we reported about an iPhone app
that allows you to use the camera to take snapshots of a check and have it deposited to your account – all from the comforts of your home. Now USAA’s Deposit@Mobile app will be available for all Android users – that’s unless you’re running something below Android 1.6. It offers the same level of convenience found on the iPhone app with a few extras such as an ATM locator, detailed accident checklist, loan calculator, and a car rental locator. You can simply deposit checks from anywhere by taking an image of the front and back of an endorsed check – which is then electronically sent over by the app. You’ve got to wonder when other financial institutions will begin offering this kind of service; just think about the lines you won’t have to wait on anymore after getting out of work. At least USAA bank members are able to use this convenient service right now.
