We’ve got an important update for Ally Bank customers: We’re planning to release the initial version of Ally’s mobile banking application in early 2012.

Lots of you have asked us when you could expect a mobile solution from Ally and we share your anticipation. We’re excited to tell you that in 2012, we’ll release several mobile offerings, starting with apps for both the iPhone and Android as well as the ability to access your accounts through any phone that has web access. After that, keep an eye out for more Ally mobile services, including the ability to deposit checks using your mobile phone’s camera, bill pay and more.

We’ll be publishing posts here on the Straight Talk Blog with the latest details on our progress. In addition, we’ll also be looking at your mobile banking ideas on Idea Share, our collaborative space on Facebook, to be sure our mobile banking experience includes feedback from the Ally community wherever possible.

We’re excited to be sharing our plans as they evolve and come to fruition, so be sure to stay connected with all things Ally for more details and join in on the conversation on Idea Share.
