Just as we were all about to get antsy and express our distaste for Chase’s lack of a presence in the Android market, they put an app out just a couple of days later. If you Chase fans head to your Android market right now and search for “Chase,” it’ll be a few results down and you’ll love every bit of what you get if you’re a fan of the iPhone version. Everything is nearly the same except for the exclusion of QuickPay, but we’re told that’s being added in a later update. I’ve taken it for a quick spin and I can honestly say I won’t need to use their website for the most common functions I need. Go and download it now. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
