TD expands line of free mobile banking applications
First bank in Canada to offer BlackBerry, Android apps
Canadians looking for a mobile app, regardless of their choice of smartphones, should look no further. TD has announced it has launched a free TD mobile app for BlackBerry and Android devices. The new apps make TD the first financial services provider in Canada with mobile apps for the most in-demand smartphones available on the market.
"Whether you're a BlackBerry, iPhone or Android fan, we're making mobile banking convenient and comfortable for everyone," said Joan Dal Bianco, Vice President, Online Channel, TD. "Now our customers, including thousands of small business owners, can pay bills, check account balances, and find a nearby TD branch or ATM, anytime, anywhere, on any of these mobile devices."
The TD mobile app for BlackBerry and Android offers:
A North American TD Locator to help find TD branches and ATMs in both Canada and the U.S. - where customers can access their TD accounts without incurring any ATM fees at more than 5,000 TD ATMs on both sides of the border;
TD Canada Trust EasyWeb Internet banking for personal and Small Business Banking accounts. Customers can log in and view a consolidated portfolio of their accounts at TD, pay bills, view account histories and transfer money between accounts;
Easy connection to TD Waterhouse Investment Representatives for users to apply to open an account and for existing TD Waterhouse Discount Brokerage clients to speak to a representative to obtain market quotes and place trades in English, French, Cantonese or Mandarin;
The ability to connect to a TD Insurance specialist for instant quotes on Home, Auto, Life and Health insurance or to seek advice on how to file claims. The app also includes an Accident Toolkit and a Notepad to record details in the event of an auto accident.

"Mobile banking is quickly becoming a popular option for Canadians," said Paal Kaperdal, Senior Vice President, Online Channel, TD. "As we continue to enhance our mobile offering, we want our customers to tell us how we can make doing business with TD on their smartphones even more comfortable. After all, who better to ask?"
The launch builds on the existing TD mobile app line-up for iPhone and iPod touch, which made its debut in April 2010 and was downloaded 100,000 times within the first 10 days of its arrival. All TD mobile apps use 128-bit encryption to protect the confidentiality and integrity of personal account information and transactions. In addition, TD customers are protected by the Online Security Guarantee which provides 100 per cent reimbursement to customers in the unlikely event they experience a loss from an EasyWeb or WebBroker transaction they did not authorize.
