The Navy Federal Credit Union app, which bears the tagline “Banking made beautiful on your iPhone and iPod Touch,” was updated in early November for the new, taller iPhone, and “prettied up” for its re-release. High ratings in the App seem to indicate the update is a hit.
Ratemizer is a new app (released Nov. 13) for calculating your mobile phone bill. It received a warm writeup in The New York Times‘s Bits blog. Customers log into their mobile accounts and Ratemizer gets to work analyzing usage patterns and — possibly — recommending a new plan.
