Mobile Applications of Indian Banks – Part 1

Mobile phones have started to replace desktops and laptops in daily usage specially for accessing Internet and Internet enabled applications. People are using mobile phones for checking various social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn; for emails; for reading news; for reading books, for watching videos etc. This is equally applicable for financial and banking applications as well. In the first post of this series I am going to tell about mobile applications of three leading private Indian banks.

1. HDFC Bank –

HDFC Bank is leading private and technology savvy bank in India. It has mobile applications for Android, iOS, Blackberry, Blackberry 10, Windows Phone and Nokia phones. It also has mobile web application for doing mobile banking through browser. HDFC Bank mobile application has various sections which are as follows –

  • Accounts
  • Funds Transfer
  • Credit Card
  • Debit Card
  • Mutual Fund
  • Demat
  • Bill Payment
  • Insta Alerts
  • Others

I have personally used the application on my Android phone and I found the application to be very user-friendly and fast.

Download links for the application are as follows –

iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad –  https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/hdfc-bank-mobanking/id515891771

2. ICICI Bank

 ICICI Bank has its mobile application with the name of iMobile. iMobile is available for Android, iOS, Blackberry and Java phones. As of now there is no application available for Windows Phone. It also has mobile web application for doing mobile banking through browser. ICICI Bank mobile WAP site is also available for non-smartphones.  Services available in iMobile application are as follows –

  • Bank Account
  • Credit Card
  • Loan Account
  • Demat Account
  • mShop
  • Bill Pay
  • iServices

I have personally used the application on my Android phone. Although the application is very useful but I found HDFC Bank mobile application better than iMobile in terms of speed and user interface.

Download links for the application are as follows –

iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/icici-bank-imobile/id375276006

3. Axis Bank

Axis Bank has mobile applications for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Java phones. It seems that its application for Java and Blackberry phone is same as I could not find it in Blackberry World application store. I also could not find any mobile web application for the bank. Services offered on the application are not as much extensive as of HDFC and ICICI as you can see below –

  • Bank Accounts
  • Funds Transfer
  • Bill Payment

Download links for the application are as follows –

iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/axis-bank-mobile-application/id517266358

Android – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.csam.axis.activity

In the next part of the series I will take you through mobile applications of other  Indian Banks.
