PayPal is finally extending its money transfer system to the BlackBerry, with a new, free Send Money app for the Blackberry. The app will let you access your PayPal account and easily send money to a recipient. You can find on the BlackBerry App World here.
The app will also tap into your contact list on the phone making it simple to choose a recipient to send money too. Users can also access their recent PayPal transactions and monitor their account balances directly from the app.
You can even send money in 23 different currencies, with the app available in the U.S., Canada, U.K., France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, Portugal and Australia. The BlackBerry PayPal app joins its iPhone and Android app cousins.
While the new BlackBerry app is minor compared to some of the recent innovations PayPal has launched, it still represents the company’s greater strategy of becoming the next wave of payments technology. PayPal’s parent company eBay, has made a big push in the mobile space so its safe to assume that PayPal will continue to focus on mobile opportunities in the coming year.
