The Best Apps For Banking Mobile app banking has become a staple in the modern-day banking industry. And rightfully so.
A banking app is one of the most client-centric solutions financial institutions in the US have come to accept in years. Having your wallet in the smartphone and the ability to simply tap a smartwatch on a counter while paying for groceries is much handier than cash. Especially with the whole COVID-19 situation surrounding us.
What is the best US banking app then? Oh, there’s more than one!
The Best Mobile Bank Apps in The US
Without further ado, let’s dive a bit deeper into our handy list of fintech solutions designed to make our lives simpler and our shopping experiences more casual:
The Bank of America App: This application is a sight for sore eyes of Bank of America clients as it offers a diverse number of features and a lot of neat quality of life improvements. For example, you can access your funds while away from home in a different country with a couple of taps. You can also activate, deactivate, and order replacement cards from the app. That being said, security is where the bank of America app really shines – the verification mechanisms are tight, and in the rare case they are breached, you will not be held liable and are free to apply for refunds of fraudulent mobile banking activities.
Ally Bank: This is one of the leading mobile banking apps globally. A convenient check deposit, bill payment mechanics, transaction history, ATM locator, and mobile money transfer features establish the Ally Bank as the top contender for the number one mobile bank app in the US. The crisp interface and intuitive navigation serve as an excellent cherry on the icing.
Charles Schwab App: This is an excellent application for those of you who prefer their money working. The app by a brokerage giant offers access to all of your accounts, a transaction history, and options for trading everything from exchange to stock. You can see live market stats from the app, which helps when it comes to decision making.
Capital One: This banking app has the highest customer satisfaction score on our list. It is simple and intuitive when it comes to the interface, and it is quite handy for the times when money is tight. Capital One offers access to loans and credits from the screen of your phone – no visit to a bank required.
Huntington Bank App: This is a newbie on the market coming from a bank that has received its marks in 2019 and has been taking the market by storm ever since. The app offers everything we’ve come to expect from banking solutions with a couple of extra features on top: push notifications, access to balance without logging in, and a 24-hour grace period for accidental overdrafts.

Continue Reading New Together Mode In Microsoft Teams: What We Know About It Microsoft for teams has become one of the largest players on the market of p2p video calls for businesses and enterprises during this difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Microsoft Teams Meeting is now a staple of collaboration which, as it turns out, is a double-edged sword. On the one side, meeting with your colleagues has never been simpler. Grab a laptop, log in, and chat from the comfort of your couch.
Alas, this concept only sounds neat on paper. In reality, a conversation with more than 5 people at the same time is a test of endurance. How can you keep your thoughts in focus when there are several faces looking at you, or into a corner, or following a mysterious fly on the wall, all while being surrounded by varying environments?
Talking to faces in squares is as confusing as performing in the middle of Times Square for people without prior experience. The guys from Microsoft seem to acknowledge this fact as they’ve rolled out the together mode feature (a little too late, if you ask me, as a lot of people have quit the app in favor of alternatives at this point).
What’s the Together Mode, You Ask?
If you’ve ever followed a Twitch or YouTube streamer, you probably know the gist. If put simply, the mode creates a shared environment for everyone who is joining the call. The algorithm takes one’s image, blurs the native background, and adds something of its own, like a shared call room, an office space, or a lecture hall.
This approach is surprisingly beneficial to networking and collaboration, as proven by brain activity studies, Microsoft’s research proves that the new together mode helps people engage more in a conversation while making them more comfortable and, as a result, much more happy after hanging out with coworkers.
What About the Business Side?
Teams is a tool for collaboration. As such, it should offer more than a nice place to meet with people in a digital space as there are such mechanics as presentations, screen sharing, and content updates involved.
The new Together mode takes care of that as well by offering the Dynamic view. The mode offers more control over both the content you share and the participants you share said content with. The mode allows you to select specific people and see them side by side with a presentation you share.
In addition to that, there are such features as:
Lighting level tweaks
PowerPoint Live (coming soon)
In simpler words, the new mode packs a mighty punch, and maybe, just maybe, it is enough to get back those of you who have opted to move from Teams to the plethora of alternative solutions.
What’s It Going to Be?
Feel free to download Microsoft teams and share your experience with the new modes of Microsoft Teams meetings here. Do you prefer the Together mode or the Dynamic view? We are looking to hear from you!
