Park Sterling launches mobile banking apps

Responding to the steady flow of banking transactions from branches to phones, Charlotte-based Park Sterling Bank launched this week a suite of mobile banking apps.

Available for iPhone, iPad and Android, the apps allow personal banking customers to check balances and transfer money between accounts. The apps do not support business accounts yet.

The number of mobile banking users has doubled in the past year, according to a Pew study. More than 35 percent of people with cell phones now use mobile banking, up from 18 percent in 2011.
