Personal has announced it has released its Fill It mobile app to enable secure, one-touch autofill experiences in mobile apps and sites.
The app is now available on the Google Play Store, and it will soon be released on the Apple App Store.
Fill It Mobile addresses two of the biggest areas of friction in mobile apps and transactions – the difficulty of completing forms on mobile devices, and users reusing their data across apps. In anticipation of the upcoming iOS 8 release from Apple, which enables apps to easily interact with one another, Fill It will also support Touch ID, allowing it to be even more seamlessly experienced by users in sites and apps.
Through Fill It Mobile, users can now use different types of data for any kind of mobile form or transaction, including:
- registrations and account creation
- payments of all types (including ACH and wire transfers)
- credit card, banking and insurance applications
- job applications and HR
- real estate and mortgage
- medical and health insurance
- government and school
- travel and events; and
- shopping and loyalty and rewards sign ups
Shane Green, Co-Founder and CEO of Personal, said: “Billions of hours and dollars are lost each year as people struggle to find and re-enter all kinds of information on paper and Web forms. The problem is even worse in the rapidly growing mobile economy; Fill It Mobile delivers on the promise of a 1-touch mobile experience wherever you want.”
