Get more control over your bank accounts with mobile apps
The mobile apps to manage your bank accounts are becoming more and more popular. Most banks offer consumers their own free mobile applications to manage their finances. And most of these apps will allow you to check your balances, view transaction history, transfer money between accounts, and pay your bills. These are the general functions and different banks can add their own services. Let’s take a look at some apps from major institutions.
