The financial software company Intuit has acquired Check, the popular mobile banking service formerly called Pageonce, for $360 million. The Wall Street Journal reports:
Check is the latest tech startup to be snapped up by Intuit as the Mountain View, Calif., finance-software maker expands its suite of tools for individuals and small businesses through acquisitions. Last year, the company bought document service DocStoc, tax-return helper GoodApril and small-business scheduling tool Full Slate. Earlier this month it bought inventory-tracking software Lettuce.Available on both iOS and Android, Check offers users easy ways to stay on top of their bills and monitor their bank accounts and credit cards. It's quite similar to the personal finance app Mint, which was acquired by Intuit in 2009 for $170 million. Check is available in the App Store for free. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later. The app's iOS 7 update came last December, seven months after its rebranding from Pageonce to Check. Under its former name, Check is included in AppAdvice’s Best Personal Finance Apps AppList.
