Well, it might not be the fully featured app experience that BOQ customers have been looking for, but the BOQ LaunchPad has finally come to Android after spending over two years on iOS. Android users can use the app for quick access to mobile banking, as well as BOQ branch and ATM location tools, contact details and the bank's home page.

Mobile banking allows users to check balance and transaction history, pay bills and make transfers, amongst other things. The ATM search function uses GPS to find the nearest terminal.

From Here

Price: Free
Platform: Windows Phone 7

If you're looking for good Mango apps, here's one. From Here takes you exploring, with cool maps, turn-by-turn directions and the option to see different stops on the maps: petrol stations, hotels, cafes, ATMs and so forth. It's kind of like Google Maps for Android; in fact, it's powered by Google, but it uses Bing's map system, but it's still pretty slick.
