Turkish bank introduces a futuristic mobile finance platform.
It’s hard to make bank apps something worth bragging about, but somehow Turkish bank Akbank has found a way to do so. They created a financial product that includes augmented reality. The idea might seem a bit foreign, but it is actually very cool if you value good mobile banking experiences. The Akbank Direkt app was released last month, and has been receiving an increasing amount of positive reviews from users.
The app works on any Windows Phone, and uses a pin-point accurate method to help users locate the nearest ATM, exposing the most hard-to-spot machines. As an added bonus, the app comes with a currency converter, and a single password login for convenience.
Offered for free in the Windows Phone Store, this ultra high-tech banking app is only available for use in Turkey. But should you ever visit the country, you now have a secure way to review your transactions, check the currency rate, and locate a nearby ATM.
