BankServ anounced today that it's mobile capture service for checks now supports the BlackBerry platform. The service has been available to iPhone users for a few months now and finally has made its way to BlackBerry. The service lets you snap a picture of a check using the camera on your device and submit it electronically to your bank.
"After the iPhone version of Mobile Check Capture got such a warm reception, expanding to other mobile OS platforms was a natural next step. There are several other mobile operating systems with established user bases in the millions," said BankServ vice president Danne Buchanan, who heads the company's Payment Solutions division. "BlackBerry's focus on the business client base makes it a particularly attractive fit for our check capture app -- and we anticipate that the demand for mobile banking technology is something that is going to exist across all mobile operating systems."
Now that the service is available it will be up to your bank or financial institution to implement it. As of now it doesn't look like any banks support the app via BlackBerry, but hopefully it won't be long before they start jumping in. Head to bankserv.com for more info.
