BBVA Compass is the first U.S.-based financial institution to announce the development of a native application for the BlackBerry PlayBook and is one of just a handful of financial institutions with a native application for BlackBerry® smartphones.
The BlackBerry PlayBook application joins a stable of native mobile banking applications offered by the bank, including those for the aforementioned BlackBerry smartphones, as well as iPad® and iPhone® mobile digital devices, and the Android(TM) mobile technology platform.
"We are committed to providing our customers the ability to bank via their mobile device of choice," said Alex Carriles, SVP and director of mobile and internet strategies at BBVA Compass. "We are also equally committed to a quality experience which fully utilizes the capabilities of each unique mobile platform in order to create an unparalleled user experience. We're thrilled to be the first U.S. financial institution to announce the development of a native application for the BlackBerry PlayBook as it is a tangible representation of how we deliver on our 'banking built for you' experience."
The free BlackBerry PlayBook application will empower users with a fast and convenient way to manage their BBVA Compass accounts - deposits, loans and credit cards - in a striking setting. Users will be able to check balances, view posted and pending transactions, view check images and statements, transfer funds between BBVA Compass accounts and locate BBVA Compass branches.
