Natwest Bank iPad app pushed by TV advertising

As part of their commitment to 'Helpful Banking', Natwest bank in the UK have launched an iPad app for customers.

Rather than an app based around a promotion or content initiative, the Natwest iPad app is based on utility and the idea of making customers lives easier.  From a communications standpoint this is a break from the sector norm.  It's interesting  to see Natwest using Paid Media / mainstream TV advertising to generate Owned Media app downloads, rather than TV being used to promote sales through deals or offers - a focus on existing customers, rather than relentless pursuit of new ones.

  7. Kibin is a multifunctional writing platform for students, bloggers and others who may want to get some sample for brainstorming or simply proofread their essay. Also, the site has some thesis builder that helps to come up with it. Although it is made in the way of step by step application, it cannot be used as a real guide for something bigger than 2-3 pages. Kibin is the absolutely legit site as it does not provide any writing services except editing. The prices for editing are too high, but the sample data-base is extremely useful. Besides, a lot of people say that there is only grammar/spelling check available and no other suggestions are possible. The support agents work only via email and provide answers very slow.
