Please enter banking info to continue

There seems to be a lot of interest in checking your bank balance from your phone. Enough that I considered turning it into a service, but I keep wondering if people would be willing to provide their banking info to a unknown service just for the convenience. Though, being in the computer security field, I fear more that people WOULD be willing. That was why I supplied the code, so people could run it on their own boxes without having to trust someone else with their info. Also, I just remembered the legal requirements for storing that data. Bugger.

Maybe I'll just try to make the programs easier to run, and more accessible to regular users.
