Today's iPhone app reviews include eTextbooks, USAA, iConcertCal, and Call of Duty: World at War Companion. CourseSmart's eTextbooks for iPhone app allows college students to access entire eTextbooks (that they paid for on www.coursesmart.com) on their iPhones. USAA is the first bank to allow customers to deposit a check simply by photographing the check with their iPhone's and emailing the photos…hence never leaving their office. iConcertCal creates a concert calender based on the stuff in your iPod library, and Call of Duty: World at War Companion lets users stay connected to their game no matter where they are.

USAA is a private bank/insurance company with an iPhone app that has some pretty typical useful bank features…except for one that stands out. What this app does is truly revolutionary. USAA Bank now allows users to use a feature called "Deposit@Mobile", which basically enables customers to deposit a bank check by photographing the front and back of it with the iPhone's camera and sending the image. You won't have to send in the check later, either…just void it. Check out the NYTimes article about it.

Can you imagine the convenience of not having to even go to an ATM machine (let alone the bank) to deposit a check? If it's safe, then it's genius. There are some requirements to be eligible to use Deposit@Mobile. You must (1) be eligible for USAA insurance, (2) have a USAA deposit account, and (3) have a USAA-issued credit card or loan, or be approved for one. All that aside, it's still a great idea.
