MasterCard Worldwide today announced the availability of the MasterCard ATM Hunter application for BlackBerry smartphones.
The app lets BlackBerry smartphone users easily locate the nearest ATM no matter where in the world they are. ATM Hunter is available for free download on BlackBerry App World.
"BlackBerry is the number one smartphone platform in the country and we are pleased to bring its users ATM Hunter," said Cheryl Guerin, Senior Vice President, US and Digital Marketing, MasterCard Worldwide. "MasterCard ATM Hunter helps make life easier not only for MasterCard cardholders, but for all consumers by letting you instantly search by your financial institution - or find those that are surcharge free - helping to avoid deposit or withdrawal fees and save time and money."
The MasterCard ATM Hunter utilizes the BlackBerry platform's location awareness technologies to pinpoint the search and easily locate the nearest ATM, whether located in a bank, restaurant, airport, retail or convenience store...or elsewhere. Users without GPS-enabled BlackBerry smartphones, or who are out of GPS coverage, can still search for nearby ATMs using MasterCard's database of ATM locations. Users can customize their hunt based on their banking needs, focusing on a financial institution if they need to make a deposit or wish to avoid ATM withdrawal fees. MasterCard ATM Hunter can also identify wheelchair accessible, drive-through, or 24-hour access ATMs and provide directions for BlackBerry smartphone users.
Powered by the MasterCard Location Services platform, the MasterCard ATM Hunter application for BlackBerry smartphones is the latest mobile delivery channel for ATM location information from MasterCard. Each year, more than four million consumers contact MasterCard via the Web, phone and wireless (SMS) to find ATM locations when they need them, wherever they are - quickly and easily.
