Here Comes Digital Banking

We did a post a while ago on BankSimple, the soon-to-be-live online digital bank that’s promising a totally new way of banking, with better customer service, greater emphasis on mobile banking and fewer fees. I think there’s a huge market for a different way of doing things in retail banking-how about you? BankSimple’s launch comes sometime in 2011, but they have launched the preview site where you can sign up for a beta account. Stay tuned, I’ll definitely be reviewing my BankSimple experience.

Update:  I’ll be watching this even closer than I had planned to when I originally wrote this post a year ago; it seems that the general unhappiness with large banks that has led to the Occupy movement has positioned Bank Simple–which is now known simply as ““–very well if they execute properly.
