Banking has always looked for ways to get their services closer to the customer. In the 1950s they invented the neighborhood branch. In the 1960s they introduced the drive-through window. In the 1970s they came up with the ubiquitous ATM machine. And today, they have managed to put the entire bank in our pockets.

According to a survey conducted by MagnifyMoney, consumer satisfaction sits around 3.8 on a five-point scale.

According to the survey, nine of the top 10 rated apps had been developed by an outsourced developer, Digital Insight. Here’s some of our observations for bank marketing:
