RIVERWOODS, Ill., Nov 24, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS) today announced the launch of a Discover App for iPhone and iPod touch on the App Store. The app will allow cardmembers to manage their accounts directly from their iPhone or iPod Touch.

Once the app is opened, Discover.com registered users can login by entering their user ID and password. The login page also provides users with the ability to contact customer service, learn more about Discover or connect with Discover via social media.

Once logged in, the app offers Discover.com account access and provides a variety of functionality, including the ability to view recent activity, make a payment and view rewards detail.

"The account management features of the new app, such as making a payment and checking a balance, are easy and convenient for managing finances on the go," said Mike Boush, vice president of E-Business at Discover. "But beyond that, our cardmembers see the Discover logo at millions of merchant locations across the country every day, and now they can see the rewards they're earning in the palm of their hand."

The Discover App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod Touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.

The app is the most recent offering through Discover Mobile, Discover's platform that gives cardmembers easy-to-use account management via mobile devices.
