This is a Bluebird app review. We think Bluebird card is the best prepaid debit card on the market. We did a detailed post providing the reasons why we think it is the best alternative to a traditional checking account. Now we are equally excited about the Bluebird app and here is why:
Great Android and iOS Apps
The app is available both on Andriod and iOS (for iPhone and iPad). We have tested both of them and found them to be very robust and easy to use and navigate. One thing we like about the phone app is the layout. It’s easy to get to the things you want to do verify quickly, including bill pay, sending money, making a deposit into your account and requesting money from another Bluebird account holder. You can also easily view your account balance, transaction history and information on sub accounts as shown in the image below.
You can do a lot on the app. First, you can deposit checks via phone. All you need to do is take a picture of the check using your phone camera and you are done. You can also easily pay your bills using the app. That is a very convenient feature especially if you are on the go and forgot to pay some bills. The other feature we like is the ability to transfer funds into your Bluebird account from your linked accounts, including your bank accounts. You can also send money to other Bluebird card holders or sub accounts that you have, like ones for other family members like children etc. Watch the attached video for a detailed list of all the features we like about the app.
You also have access to special offers American Express provides to it’s card holders within the app, like deals from third parties that America Express has relationships with.
