Some mobile banking customers have the ability to deposit a payroll or other check into their checking account by simply taking a photo of it from their phone and uploading it. "You can send an image to the bank and have it treated as a deposit," says Bissell.

Once a customer deposits the check, he or she can have immediate access to the funds in most cases, says Schwartz. He adds that this feature is especially important for consumers who bank at institutions that don't have brick-and-mortar branches. It's one major way for banks to connect with their members, wherever they are, he says.
