I, like you, have been pretty dissatisfied with online banking as a whole, both from an user experience as well as technological limitations. I believe that in 2011 we’ll see a shift (finally) with BankSimple.net!
From one of the software engineers that created Twitter, Alex Payne, this new re-invented service might just make banking awesome:
Imagine, for a moment, a bank that doesn’t suck.
A bank that doesn’t gouge you with fees.
A bank that doesn’t treat you like crap.
A bank that cares about design, but gets out of your way.
A bank that puts your money to work automatically.
A bank that’s building a platform for the future of personal finance.
I’ve imagined that bank, usually while on hold with my current bank after they’ve screwed something up. I want to be a customer of that bank. More than that, I want to make it happen.
So, I am.
I’m pretty pumped with the idea of it all. Go and read the vision of the project and get excited – this is the web service I’m looking forward to in 2011!
