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

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.

      @animageofmine1 While probably a great app, I can't believe anyone still uses Bank of America!

      Yeah but you won't have IE9 on your i0S crap! Yes it will be THE BEST browser on ANY mobile platform.
      Folks, after Mango, things will only get better for Microsoft and windows phone users! (Let the King be re-crowned) LOL

        "And low folks, after the coming of Mango there will be Microsoft and no other, for by IE9 shall the others be burned and devoured and iOS discharged and Android discarded as fecal refuse and it's users' bitter excrement. Let the King Ballmer be re-crowned!"

        @mikroland Um whatever...Could you not make your trolling sound so much like fanatic "end-of-days" religious zealotry...you're scaring the children.
