Bank of America cashes in on Windows Phone 7 with new app

Summary:Via a new Windows Phone 7 app, Bank of America customers can monitor their accounts, pay bills, and transfer cash.

Bank of America has finally made its appearance on Windows Phone 7.

Via the company's new app, Bank of America customers can check their balances, transfer cash, pay bills, and find the nearest Bank of America locations. (According to MobileTechWorld, that latter functionality works pretty well with WP7's integrated Bing Maps feature.) Obviously, security is a major concern with mobile banking, but Bank of America says that the app's transactions get the same level of security as their online counterparts.

Bank of America already offers the same app on the Android Market Market and iTunes Store, but Microsoft is apparently so proud of the WP7 version that the company featured the app on its Windows Phone Blog. You take what you can get, I suppose.
