A growing number of mobile users in the United States are relying on smartphones and tablets to access their bank accounts, using apps and mobile websites.
Thirty nine percent of mobile phone owners are using mobile banking in 2014, a slight increase from 29 percent in 2012 and 33 percent in 2013, according to a survey from the Federal Reserve.
If you have a bank account, chances are very good that your bank has a mobile app that you can utilize to check your balance, recent transactions, and other typical activities. Regional and national banks are pushing users towards mobile banking - and it's becoming a major selling point - as 26 percent of respondents noted they switched banks in the past year because of a more enjoyable mobile experience elsewhere.
