Today, tech startup Glyph released its new iPhone app that provides consumers with valuable information regarding which credit cards offer the most valuable rewards programs. Glyph is currently available in the iTunes app store.
Using the iPhone’s location-based GPS, Glyph recommends the right card to use based on where the user is shopping. Over time, the app learns each user’s habits, and suggests which cards would make a perfect portfolio, never allowing the user to miss out on rewards. Glyph does not require any credit card numbers to function and is free in the Apple App Store.
Banks have taken already notice of the value that Glyph brings to the market: the app is launching with support from Discover, allowing Glyph users to apply for new cards directly through the app. Similar relationships with other financial institutions are in the works.
