SAN JOSE, Calif.-Even with an average user-rating of 2.5 out of 5 stars, Technology CU's iPhone application has given the CU something to brag about: the iPhone app is bolstering mobile banking usage.

The number of mobile banking users has nearly doubled since the locator application was launched at the Apple App Store in June, according Tech CU's Victor Smilgys, because the application includes a log-in link to the CU's mobile banking site. "Tech CU consistently promotes the benefits of this added feature, and the response rates to these campaigns correlate with the increase in our mobile banking usage." Nearly 7,000 members are now using mobile banking, and about 2500 people have downloaded the iPhone locator app, he said.
