I run CARD.com, a mobile alternative to branch bnaking.

Mobile Banking is booming because of broader adoption of smartphones.

Whereas the internet connected PC was the killer app for ecommerce vs brick/mortar retailers, it did not kill the branch bank. Why? Cause you cant stick cash or checks into a computer screen, or get cash out.

Now that a camera on your Android can load checks, and the phone can find free ATMs in-network at, say, a Walgreens, there's no need for branches. This is going to happen FAST now.
