Am I the only one that hates dealing with checks? I only write them to pay my rent, since I can’t use my debit card or any form of online payment. I’m not a big fan of people writing me checks for stuff either. I won’t complain when someone gives me money or anything, but I always forget to cash them since I never go to the bank. Well one bank has an awesome solution for depositing those checks you get.
To be as cliché as possible, “there’s an app for that.” If you bank with USAA (a bank for military personnel and their family members) you can actually snap pictures of the front and back of the check with your iPhone. In a short while, your funds will appear in your account like magic. While I do have a few doubts about the security of the system, it would be nice to see other banks pick up on this feature.
