Features available within the new apps and mobile website including checking account balances, searching transaction history, transferring money between Ally Bank accounts and locating ATMs and cash-back locations using the phone’s GPS capabilities.
Additionally, Ally Bank is offering a second app for non-customer Android and iPhone users, which will locate nearby ATMs and cash-back locations in the U.S. This app, called Ally’s ATM & Cash Locator, is available to the public and free to download at the App Store and Google Play Store.
“We’re excited to debut the first phase of Ally Mobile Banking, designed for the convenience of our customers and non-customers alike,” said Diane Morais, deposits and product innovation executive, Ally Bank. “By ensuring quick and easy access to money and account information away from home, we expect Ally Bank’s new apps to meet the needs of today’s busy consumers.”
