Wallaby Financial, the leader in mobile and web-based credit card optimization solutions, today announced the launch of Wallaby for Android Wear.
The product introduction further extends Wallaby's position as the leading provider of financial services apps for wearable devices, smartphones and web. The broad market appeal of Wallaby's credit card optimization solutions has carried over to a broad range of form factors and feature sets including Google Glass, Pebble, and Samsung devices.
Android Wear offers a number of features that enhance the inherent usability of Wallaby's credit card intelligence and recommendations. Wallaby for Android Wear allows users to activate key commands by voice in addition to other user input techniques. The app also enables users to review their current credit utilization and available credit balances directly on their device.
Both Wallaby and the Android Wear operating system offer information to consumers proactively and with context. Wallaby for Android Wear recognizes the user's location and automatically serves up an unbiased recommendation on which credit card the consumer should use. Suggestions are based on the user's preferences, whether these are to gain more rewards or cash back on purchases. Wallaby for Android Wear brings consumers the power and accuracy of CardBase™, Wallaby's proprietary database of more than 2,000 credit card profiles, by simply glancing at their Android Wear device.
"Wallaby for Android Wear strengthens our stance at the leading edge of wearable technology. The app also extends our ability to provide valuable financial information and services to consumers in the context of their daily lives," said Matthew Goldman, Founder and CEO of Wallaby Financial. "Each successive wearable device launch allows us to further enhance the capabilities we provide instantaneously and conveniently to our customers. The scale and excitement surrounding the launch of Android Wear makes this a particularly exciting landmark for our team."
Wallaby for Android Wear is free to anyone with a Wallaby account, and can operate on the Moto 360, LG G and other Android Wear devices. After installing Wallaby for Android Wear, users launch the app and see which of their credit cards is best to use for a given transaction. The app recognizes the user's location and provides an instantaneous recommendation to help them achieve their financial goals.
