"You may not want to learn how much smaller your bank account has gotten. But banks are making it easier than ever for consumers to access account information on their mobile devices."
Bank of America and Chase are a couple banks that have specific apps for free in the iTunes store, but even those without apps are getting into the mobile banking scene. I use Wells Fargo as well as Washington Mutual (yes they are both still in business) and both have mobile interfaces with custom icons that work very well with the iPhone. They make it very easy to transfer funds and check balances among other things; much more usable than using SMS to get information. The iPhone, for me, has become very indispensable when it comes to my banking needs.
