PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wallaby Financial Inc., the leader in mobile and web-based credit card optimization solutions, today announced the release of version 4.0 of its smart spending assistant app for Android. The latest version of the app sends users alerts based on location, providing instant access to insight on which credit card offers the highest cost-savings, as well as giving users faster integration and connection between the app and their specific banks.
The Android app intelligently combines information based on geo-location, financial data and the time of day to help users optimize credit card use and maximize savings opportunities. The app does not need to be open for the "Ambient Alert" feature to function—users will receive real-time alerts with a quick visual reminder suggesting which card to use to save the most money. The new feature operates to only rely on phone service only when needed, minimizing battery usage.
"The accuracy of our Android app, driven by geo-location technology, offers real-time notifications to users to help them get the most points, miles or cash back possible," said Matthew Goldman, Wallaby Financial Founder and CEO. "Now Android users will have even more opportunities to save and rack up rewards, without compromising battery life or facing the hassle of checking their app each time they make a purchase."
Wallaby helps consumers maximize credit card rewards by making it easy to choose the optimal card for each purchase. Powered by CardBase®, Wallaby's proprietary database of more than 3,200 credit card profiles, the Wallaby Financial app for iPhone and Android recognize the user's location and delivers an unbiased card recommendation for a given purchase.
After installing Wallaby on their Android or iPhone device, users sign in or sign up for free and quickly add their current credit cards and preferences. When users launch the app, they immediately see which of their credit cards is best to use for a given transaction. Wallaby version 4.0 for Android is now available on Google Play and at www.walla.by/mobile.
