iOS Weekly – Updated iPhone and iPad Apps in Financial Services [25 Mar 2012]

Despite being a recent owner of an iphone and a new ipad, I’ve already installed dozens of financial services apps on my devices. On regular basis, I will share with you a list of the latest application updates for iOS from banks, insurance, cards and payments and investment companies all over the world.

I have recently switched from a blackberry to an iPhone 4S and I must admit that I really enjoy using the latest Apple smartphone.  On 16th March, at about 7pm, I walked in the Apple store ‘White City’ in London which had still a good amount of new iPads in stock.  I decided to go ahead and entrust Apple once more with my very first purchase of a tablet.  Please note that I am not an Apple enthusiast by any means, and I still enjoy my laptop PC at home.

I installed a fair amount of iOS apps on my iPhone and iPad in order to keep abreast of any new updates and spot any major, ideally innovative, enhancements.  I aim to post regular updates on the Visible Banking blog.

Please find my list of updated apps between 19-25 March 2012. I invite you to check out what every single of those updates is about.
