Yet another bank launches mobile check deposit. Here's an excerpt of BB&T's April 30th press release
BB&T Corporation (NYSE: BBT) today added another convenient feature to its mobile banking line – mobile check deposit. The feature allows personal and small business clients to quickly, easily and safely deposit paper checks using an iPhone, Android or iPod Touch camera.
It's interesting that many brick-and-mortar banks are ahead of internet banks on this service. In the case of BB&T it might be a strategy to increase fee revenue since they will be charging 50 cents per check deposit.
