    I'm trying to get a better experience banking on the go and I was wondering if any of you actually like your bank's iOS app. Are any of them good?

    Right now I have Wells Fargo and USAA - but since I'm not military, I can't use the mobile deposit part, which sucks cause there are no USAA branches near me besides for UPS stores.

    Looking for recommendations if there are any...

    Chase Bank works great, but they have yet to update to the iOS 7 style app. Mobile check deposit works as well.

    I have only tried a handful (mainly, Bank of America, Chase, CITI), but by far the most pleasant is Simple.

    Are you aware that the Wells Fargo app supports mobile deposit?

    Anyway, I have used WF, BoA and Chase. None of them stuck out to me as particularly better or worse than the others.

    I use Chase, Wells Fargo, and American Express. I can't speak for the others, but Chase is my favorite.

    What I like most is transactions are posted immediately. If I'm at a restaurant, and give the server my card, within 10-15 seconds of the server swiping it I get an instant notification that I've had a charge on my account.

    American Express would be my next favorite.

    Wells Fargo is my least favorite, can't stand it. It's just a mobile site within an app. Doesn't feel like a native app at all compared to chase and American Express.

    I've used Bank of America, CITI, and Chase. The Chase mobile app is my favorite in terms of ease of use.

    It really is one of the worst mobile apps I've seen.

    Agreed. Hope you realised I was being sarcastic! I really hate it.

    Man, you should really try Halifax app. It would really blow your mind :rolleyes:

    Agreed. The Halifax app is hardly worthy of being called an app at all, given it's just a thin veneer over the existing web site.

    My vote for best UK banking app is the Natwest one because it's a genuine universal app with proper support for the iPad as well as the iPhone. That's a big plus for me.

    Yep, I guessed...there's no way anyone could recognise that app as even being half decent...!

    You're not being military shouldn't have anything to do with making mobile deposits in your USAA app. Even my daughter, my niece, and my sister-in-law (non prior service) can take pictures of checks to deposit from anywhere.

    Are you looking in the right place? USAA was the first bank to offer mobile deposit, and the app is stellar.

    What? It's always worked for me.

    I'd say that USAA is the absolute best in terms of their web and app, but I'm not sure why you can't deposit checks.

    My second favorite is Bank of America.

    Simple wins this one. Using that app is a joy and that's a word you should never use when talking about a bank.

    I have Chase and it's mostly good. They have a limit on mobile deposits that means it doesn't work well for paychecks.

    Chase and Capital360 work well.

    Mobile deposit, transfers, etc.

    Chase Freedom card also has some quartly good 5% cash back incentives. This quarter it's Amazon.com and a huge ton of department stores which is pretty much tits coming up on christmas season!

    I only have one bank so I've only used the BOA app. It does work well and meets all my needs. It hasn't been updated yet for iOS7.

    The PNC app used to be adequate.. They actually made their icon worse and there's a splash screen that takes a while when you open it.

    It's not a terrible app, but it could be a lot better.

    I only have one bank, Chase, so I can only speak for their app but it's really good! Does everything I need and alerts me to any activity on my account. Plus Chase is just a really good bank period.
