MOBILE & APPS By Abby Mitcham
Banking has gone mobile. With over half of all American adults, about 56%, sporting smart phones, banks and other financial management tools have quickly adapted their systems to be compatible, secure and easy to use on mobile devices. Many smart phone users have already made the change from traditional to mobile banking and according to Consultants at the Aite Group, the number of people banking on their phones will triple by the year 2016.
Mobile wallets are smart phones or tablets that record consumers payments and transactions. While some large banks are attempting to break into this industry, other companies like Pay-Pal, Google and Apple have already shown interest in the industry. These mobile wallets and spending apps, make it easy for consumers to keep track of spending, but have little impact on how they save.
Just as the shift from traditional to online banking, the shift from online to mobile will not come without a few bumps. Consumer demands and use patterns will inevitably steer the path of mobile banking. Some apps will float, others will sink, but efficiency and speed are certain to increase. Never before have consumers had the capability to store and manage so many financial resources in the palm of their hands.

PayPal already has a partnership with MasterCard in place that lets you use its debit cards in stores, but the company has now expanded that retail presence even further with a new deal it’s struck with Discover. Starting sometime next year, that arrangement will let PayPal customers use their charge cards at any of the 7 million retail locations that accept Discover cards, with funds drawn directly from their PayPal account. What’s more, PayPal says that retailers won’t have to make any hardware or software upgrades to accept the PayPal payments, noting that they’ll simply have to let customers know of the new option with in-store signage. Of course, the deal also likely has implications beyond traditional plastic cards, as PayPal is now also pushing its mobile payments more than ever, not to mention its own triangular Square competitor. You can find the official announcement below.

YouTube is a modern phenomena. The social media platform’s original concept is rumoured to have been inspired by the idea of being a video dating site with the unlikely title of “Tune In Hook Up”. In the end it launched as a simple video sharing site that has helped reinvent the web from a one way static channel to an interactive web eco-system (along with social networking channels such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter) that has enticed and compelled us to engage globally with other internet users using a variety of rich multi-media and social sharing platforms.
YouTube after initially being about viral videos that just entertain is now much more than that, with the “How To” category being the fastest growing segment on the social video sharing channel. YouTube is even being used as a tool to teach high level mathematics and other academic and tertiary subjects with Salman Khan ofkhanacademy.org revealing at a recent Ted Talk, how his 2,000 plus YouTube videos are assisting students pass university degrees.
