MasterCard Adds ATM Finder for Android
MasterCard has expanded its ATM Hunter service to the fast-growing Android platform, two years after providing the locator app for iPhones and about a year after it was launched for BlackBerry users.
The applets allow users to quickly find the nearest ATM regardless of location around the world, said MasterCard Worldwide in Purchase, N.Y.
The MasterCard ATM Hunter uses location-based tools in the Android platform to search for the nearest ATM. Searches can be based on users' unique banking needs, such as a specific financial institution for deposits or surcharge-free ATMs, wheelchair and 24-hour access and directions.
The Android app also will allow users to report non-working ATMs or machines no longer in the location noted, the company said. MasterCard said its location services platforms now are used by millions of customers a year to find ATM and merchant locations.
