Last month we had Greater Texas Federal Credit Union on the show discussing the launch of its new Apple Watch banking app for those members who wanted to manage their finances from their wrist. In this episode, we have the makers of Greater Texas' Apple Watch banking app Malauzai Software on the show to discuss what it took to create this app before the Apple Watch was even released. A very cool behind the scenes anecdote with Malauzai's Robb Gaynor, which involved a trip to the Apple campus in Cupertino, CA, for tours and app testing.
Robb even revealed a surprising stat that of 10 the financial institutions launching an Apple Watch banking app to date, eight of those have been credit unions. Nice to see CUs leading the charge in this area. We also discussed how this app benefits credit unions, goals, and where this technology will go in the near future. Pretty fun story here with the folks from Malauzai, who also demo'd the app at Finovate's recent spring show in San Jose.
