TORONTO, March 27, 2015 /CNW/ - Tangerine announced today that its mobile banking app will be one of the first apps available on Apple Watch. The Tangerine Mobile Banking Apple Watch app will provide users with quick and easy access to their personal banking information from their wrist, including account balances, recent transactions and transaction details.
"We're excited to be one of the first apps available on Apple Watch as we continue to deliver simple and innovative solutions that allow our clients to bank on their own terms," said Peter Aceto, President and CEO of Tangerine. "This continuous innovation is what reinforces Tangerine's position as a forward thinking bank and sets us apart when it comes to delivering the future of banking to Canadians."
Tangerine's Apple Watch app provides a personal and convenient banking experience that will help redefine what Canadians expect when it comes to everyday banking on the go. Our Glance allows clients to see the most recent transaction in their account at any time. Clients have the ability to set account (balance over/balance under) and transaction thresholds (transaction amount below/transaction amount above) and subsequently receive convenient notifications all on their wrist.
The client then has the ability to dismiss the alert or get more details related to the transaction.
Tangerine Mobile Banking app for Apple Watch will be available from the Apple Watch App Store on April 24th. Tangerine Mobile Banking app for iPhone is available for free download now from the App Store.
