Citi’s mobile banking app on Kindle Fire

Being a Citibank customer and an occasional user of Amazon’s(s amzn) Kindle Fire, I am glad to see that the bank has launched a Citibank app for the Kindle. The app is available for iPad(s aapl) as well. While I prefer the iPad, and since I am waiting for the new one, I downloaded and tried the app. It does all the basic things I want it to do.

I have seen quite a few mainstream apps starting to show up on the Kindle Fire. It is a sign that in the somewhat confusing Android world, Kindle Fire is a attractive option for app developers and mainstream brands such as banks. The sales of Kindle Fire have been growing at a decent clip so I’d expect even more developers to start gravitating to the platform soon.
