BBVA Compass today launched version 2.0 of the bank's native application for the iPhone.

The free app's enhancements allow users to pay bills as well as view check images, transaction receipts, account charts and payments. It also allows users not previously using online banking to enroll in mobile banking directly from the app.

"We're using technology to create banking solutions that are simple and convenient," said Alex Carriles, executive vice president and director of Mobile and Online Strategies at BBVA Compass. "The new app gives users a fast and easy way to manage their BBVA Compass accounts in a visually enhanced setting. It's unlike any other mobile banking app on the market."

BBVA Compass designed the new iPhone app to reflect customer feedback and incorporate more innovative technology. The app has a graphical design, as opposed to older text-only apps, allowing for a more interactive experience. In addition to making payments, users can view balances and payments in chart form.

"Mobile banking is growing and evolving at a rapid pace," Carriles said. "Because this new app is based on exclusive in-house development, we will be able to add more features, more frequently."

BBVA Compass first released its iPhone app in 2009 allowing customers to retrieve balances, review transactions, transfer funds and find local branches. Over the last three years, the bank's Mobile Strategies team has launched native apps for BlackBerry, Android, iPad and PlayBook.

BBVA Compass will soon be releasing updated versions of its mobile banking apps for all current platforms. They will incorporate all of the BBVA Compass iPhone app version 2.0 features.
