Chase Mobile Remote Deposit Capture
7 July 2010
Mobile banking is now in the mainstream. I am a customer of JPMorgan Chase and like the iPhone app. It gives me the access to what I need in a mobile app:
- Balance information.
- Transaction history.
- Branch and ATM locations
I can also use it to pay my credit card bill. All good. The only reason I go to a branch or ATM is to deposit checks or get cash. I was very excited to learn about Chase's new mobile remote deposit capture. The app is very user friendly:
- Key in the amount of the amount of the transaction.
- Take a picture of the front of the check.
- Take a picture of the back of the check.
- Approve and submit.

This was a machine generated check with everything typed. Character recognition doesn't get any easier. Chase needs to go back to the drawing board on the character recognition, and I need to go to the ATM to deposit the check. I anxiously await the next version.
