There\u2019s something perversely satisfying about depositing a check in bed.\n\tWhile in a recumbent position, I\u2019ve been known to whip out my iPhone, launch my bank\u2019s app, snap a photo of the check\u2019s back and front, type in the amount, and boom. My money wings its way into my account while I return to reading Entertainment Weekly on my iPad.\n\tAlas, not all mobile banking apps make it that easy. And a new report from Xtreme Labs, entitled the \u201cU.S. Banking Apps Report: Customer Reviews,\u201d shows that some banks are doing are a better job than others with their mobile apps.\n\tThe report analyzed customer reviews on Apple\u2019s App Store and the Google Play store between May 18 and June 25, 2013, for the top 53 U.S. banks\u2019 apps. Among the findings:\n\t\n\t\t\u00a0Citizen\u2019s Bank is the only bank with the highest-rated apps on both the App Store as well as Google Play (4.5 stars on each). Other top rankers included Charter One Mobile Banking (4.0 stars, iOS); KeyBank for iPad (4.0 stars, iPad); USAA Mobile (4.6 stars, Android); and Amex Mobile (4.4 stars, Android).\n\t\n\t\tThe lowest-rated apps included People\u2019s United Bank Mobile Banking for iPad, PNC Mobile Banking, SunTrust Mobile App, and M&T Mobile, each of which earned a 2.0 or 2.3 star rating.\n\n\tWhat caused banks\u2019 mobile apps to tank in user reviews? Common issues included no deposit function or a deposit limit that\u2019s too low; bugs; and poor design.\n\tI\u2019ve used three banking apps, with mixed success. My most frequently used app is Wells Fargo\u2019s iOS app. It does a reasonably good job of letting me transfer money, check balances and such. I can even transfer money now with a text message.\n\tDepositing checks can be hit or miss, as Wells seems to keep moving the limitation on how much you can deposit at any given time. Sometimes I go through all the motions of making a deposit, only to discover the check sum is too large. (A nice problem to have, admittedly, but a problem nonetheless.) Worth noting: The app\u2019s current version has an average 2-star rating in the App Store, while the Android version has a 4-star rating.
