"This application gives credit union members access that they expect and offers credit unions a way to customize and differentiate their services from competitors."

Ownership has increased from 5 percent of American adults to about 20 percent in the past two years. When users are categorized by households that earn $75,000 or more per year, that figure increases to 47 percent.
A wide variety of financial services via the iPad app are easily accessible to credit union members using CO-OP Mobile. iPad access includes account balances and cash flow charts that summarize debit and credit activity; account history; transfers; and GPS-enabled access to CO-OP Network ATM or CO-OP Shared Branching locations. In addition, the app enables each credit union to customize with member access to their own hosted web pages for loan/account opening services, rates and promotions; or social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube.
The new iPad App for CO-OP Mobile adds to the product line's full range of mobile banking solutions, which also includes iPhone and Android applications; and CO-OP My Deposit Mobile for iPhone/Androids, Mobile Web and Text Banking.
