We’ve received many questions from our customers about when they can expect a mobile banking solution from Ally Bank. Today, we’re excited to share an update: Ally Mobile Banking is currently in testing and is targeted to launch in April.

We’re also very excited to share some screenshots of Ally Mobile Banking, to give you a preview of how it will look.

Ally Mobile Update

Although April is later than we’d hoped to get Ally Mobile Banking out to our community, our primary concern is to make sure that our mobile solution handles your finances in a safe, secure manner.

The first release of Ally Mobile Banking will include several features that already make Allybank.com great, including account activity history, details on your accrued interest and how long you’ll have to wait to reach an Ally Bank representative by phone.

As we mentioned in an earlier post, Ally Mobile Banking will roll out in phases during 2012. Our first release will include:

  • Apps for iPhone and Android smartphones that let you check your balance, search your transaction history, move money among your Ally Bank accounts – and find nearby ATMs and cash-back locations.
  • A mobile-optimized banking experience for browsers on any internet-enabled smartphone, including BlackBerry and Windows
  • An additional ATM and cash-back locator app for Ally Bank customers – and anyone else, in fact – who use iPhone and Android smartphones.

And later this year, we will add even more features to Ally Mobile Banking, including Popmoney transfers, Ally eCheck Deposit, electronic Bill-Pay and more.
