ING DIRECT Makes its Mobile Banking App iPad Ready

The first Canadian bank to simultaneously launch mobile banking with a Blackberry App, iPhone App and mobile website, now enhances its App for the iPad

TORONTO, June 7 /CNW/ - ING DIRECT has enhanced its iPhone App to support the iPad. Canada's leading direct bank was the first in the country to offer a BlackBerry App while simultaneously launching its iPhone App and mobile website m.ingdirect.ca.

ING DIRECT's App now supports the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch which gives Canadians access to all banking products and services available on its existing mobile banking apps. It supports landscape and portrait views while enabling Clients to check their account balances, review transactions, transfer funds, locate ABMs, buy and sell The Streetwise Funds(R), and get directions and hours of operation for the ING DIRECT Save Your Money Cafés. The App even provides Canadians a simple means to follow ING DIRECT on Twitter to talk about Savings.

"Canadians are among the most tech savvy in the world and they embrace new and exciting innovations such as the iPad," said Peter Aceto, President & CEO at ING DIRECT Canada. "We've always been accessible 24/7 and now these new devices ensure Canadians can do their banking, save their money and save their time, anywhere and at any time with ease and simplicity."

The iPad App is available for free to all Canadians. The iPad, iPhone and iPod touch Apps are all available in the Apple App Store or at itunes.com/appstore.
