Deposit A Check Into Your PayPal Acct By Snapping A Photo Of It

If this is any indication of the kind of trends we’re going to be seeing with mobile devices, count me way in.  We’ve seen the implementation of this function with the release of the Chase Mobile App for Android a few months ago and now it looks like PayPal is jumping on board the “pic & deposit” game.  iPhone users have had the functionality for some time and now it’s Android’s turn.  Is there anything more convenient than taking a picture of the front and backside of a check and wallah, it’s in your account a couple of days later? In addition, you did it all from the comfort of your own home, fee free.  It was only a matter of time until PayPal entered the mobile check capture scene, being that virtually most people interacting on the Internet today have a PayPal account.  That, and there’s the fact that Android’s market share is still climbing rapidly.  If you’re ready to stop doing the old drive thru thing for your deposits (for those too stubborn enough to actually get direct deposit) and you haven’t downloaded PayPal for mobile yet, then head on over to our apps database where you’ll find a QR Code available or hit up the Android Market for the download as well.  Hit the break for more screenshots of the app.
