There is always a lot of talk about great inventions. Sliced bread, for example. I can remember in college everyone felt the post-it note, ATM, and microwave ovens were the greatest things ever. (I still believe microwave ovens are in the top 5!)
But recently, since I got my iPhone, I have added a new thing to the list, and this is…remote check deposits. With our banking app, I can now submit a check for deposit by taking photos of the front and (signed) back, selecting an account to deposit the money to, and typing in the amount manually as a double-check function. One quick push of an “upload” button and I’m done! It is such a relief not to have to get to a bank (or an ATM) to deposit it.
What are your favorite inventions?
