Text Banking

It's the reason you have a stylus. Or you can just use your finger. Whatever. With text banking, you can check your balances, transfer funds, see your history and get alerts and notifications. It's fast, and you don't have to say a word (or log in). Don't text while you're driving though. That's bad. But whenever and wherever else, well … use your discretion.
