Technology Credit Union and TDECU are first CUs with native iPhone Apps

More than 10 months after the iPhone App Store launched, two U.S. credit unions have joined the application marketplace, which numbers more than 40,000 in the U.S. store alone.

The first was Texas Dow Employees Credit Union (TDECU), whose ATM and shared-branch locator, Culoc8, launched on April 29, according to the company's Twitter page (below, link). image

The TDECU app (see inset) is unbranded and can be offered by other CUs to their members. 

Eaton Family Credit Union is offering CuLoc8 to members on its website (see below).

The app (see below) includes full online banking functionality and an ATM/shared branch finder (second screenshot). The credit union also added something we haven't seen yet, an iPhone optimized feed of its blog, Money Savvy (third screenshot). Nice touch.

Tech CU has offered a mobile website since Sept. 2007.

Note:
1. America First Credit Union was the first CU with native iPhone support via its participation in Firethorn's shared mobile banking app which launched in Nov. 2008.
