In the past 2 years alone, Americans spent nearly $70 billion in overdraft fees – no, that’s not a typo. How is this even remotely possible? It’s simple. It’s cumbersome to check your account balance while in the checkout line with your hands full. It’s a nuisance, at times, to have to log in to your banking app and navigate to your account balance every time you walk into a retail store. Every time.
This is where IIICTECH’s (read: 3 C Tech) patent-pending app for iOS comes into play. WINK is expected to be a mobile app that delivers your account balance info once you walk into a retail shop. It seeks to eliminate having to repeatedly login with your password the next time you decide to grab a cup of coffee at your local java house. In essence, you get what you need, when you need it and helps in becoming a more conscious consumer.
By using custom-developed geo-fencing tech and a set of predetermined criteria set by you in the app beforehand, the app is then set up precisely to notify you in real-time what your bank balance is without logins or digging through custom apps just to see how much you have in your bank account. You can also customize the app to develop better spending habits. Oh and here is the best part, WINK is free.
Let’s recap: App that alerts you to your account balance upon entrance to a retail store and before you purchase anything. It’s simple to use and customize. Make you a more intelligent consumer. Free. You could be one of the first to beta test the app just by signing up for WINK.
The app is currently in the invite-only alpha and beta stages, but by signing up, the opportunity to participate in the alpha and beta tests is up for grabs, along with updates on the app and more information.
