Navy Federal announced today that its mobile banking application for iPad has been selected as an Official Honoree in the 18th Annual Webby Awards in the Utilities & Services category. Among the 12,000 entries from over 60 countries, fewer than 15 percent received this honor and were deemed an Official Honoree.
“We’re thrilled that our in-house designed iPad app is an Official Honoree in the Utilities & Services category,” said Meghan Gound, assistant vice president of eChannels at Navy Federal. “We continue to develop innovative mobile banking features for our members. Our credit card application is now available right in the app! We added a built-in wizard to help members choose the right card for them.”
Gound added that over 1.2 million of Navy Federal’s 4.5 million members take advantage of the mobile banking apps, with “many more joining every day.” Along with the credit card application, the iPad app’s newest enhancements – like the ability to transfer funds to outside financial institutions with no fee – have gained popularity quickly among members.
Navy Federal’s mobile banking services are available to members using most major mobile platforms, with apps for iPad, iPhone®, AndroidTM and Kindle Fire, as well as through the Navy Federal mobile website.
