The wait for Android users to enjoy features such as mobile check cashing is finally coming to the Bank of America Android app. These features have existed for a long time, especially on that other platform, but anytime this week we can expect check deposit features to arrive for BofA users on Android.
This is nothing new. iPhones have been enjoying this feature for a long time from other banks, and even Chase's Android app has the feature. Sadly one of the biggest banks in the US still never did. This week they've promised updates for Android, iOS, and yes even Windows Phone that will allow smartphone and tablet users the capability.
The feature is rather simple. Just take a picture of the front and back of a check using your smartphone camera and the newly updated app (once it arrives) and then you can instantly deposit the check into your account. They'll even offer options to distribute the deposit however and wherever you'd like.
According to Mybanktracker the update for Android smartphones should have arrived for Android earlier this week, yet still hasn't. Bank of America has rolled out this feature for iOS as of yesterday so we are expecting Android to get the update any day now. If using your smartphone to deposit checks from your couch or anywhere is of any interest, stay tuned for an update to arrive soon.
