Chase, the consumer and commercial banking arm of JPMorgan Chase & Co., officially has rolled out a mobile-banking application for phones using Google Inc.’s Android operating system, the bank announced Dec. 2.

Chase launched the mobile-banking application for Apple Inc.’s iPhone in July 2009, a Chase spokesperson tells PaymentsSource.

The Android application enables consumers to track account activity, deposit checks through a remote-deposit capture service and pay bills using their mobile phone, Chase said in a news release. The remote deposit-capture deposit service enables customers to deposit checks into their accounts using images captured with their phone’s camera (see story).

Chase customers using Android phones also may transfer funds between eligible accounts, locate the nearest branch, contact customer service, and send wire transfers to or from non-Chase accounts within the United States.

Consumers also may receive text updates with account balances and transaction histories. An instant action alert lets customers know if their checking account balance is below a specific amount, and the app lets them instantly transfer funds through a text-message reply.

Chase customers may download the application for free from the Android Market.
