Bill Payment App

That performs bill payment
  [vote for,

bank apps have finally gotten to perform check deposits by using a picture.

Using their bill payment features is typically an unbelievable nuisance, with having to enter company names (that are occasionally found), occasionaly auto-modified account numbers for special arrangements between merchant and bank, remembering to update all these things when you move, etc, etc, etc.

Given two factor authentication being already relatively prevalent, allow a bank app to pay any due bill with an identifiable name/address by using a photo app and authorizing payment through the second factor.

       This is a genius idea! A bill payment app would solve all my problems. I wouldn’t have to earn any money at all, my life would be devoted to merely musing about the juxtaposition of this versus that, and occasionally making another cup of tea. That bill payment app would take care of paying all my electricity, phone, mortgage, rent, food, clothing, beer, electronic component, paper, ink, equipment, travel, cloud storage, dentists, paints and brushes, water, council tax, banking, credit card and duck bills.   

       (Actually, I don’t have credit card bills, I paid them off over a decade ago and never used them since).

       Just a minute there. I can’t help but notice that the price on the App Store of your app seems to be £17 million.

       I like writing cheques, so this will never be for me.
