Xoom Launches New Mobile Apps for International Money Transfer
Xoom customers can now send money in seconds from native apps on Android and iOS devices
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 18, 2013 – Xoom Corporation (NASDAQ: XOOM), a leading digital money transfer provider, announced that the new Xoom Money Transfer App is now available for Android and iOS devices.
The free app provides a fast and simple method for on-the-go Xoom customers to send money to loved ones. The Xoom App is unique in its simplicity, allowing Xoom customers to complete a quick send to their recipient in a novel “one tap and one swipe” technique. This slide-to-send technique allows existing Xoom customers to submit a money transfer in just seconds.

In addition to fast and simple money transfers on the go, customers can use the Xoom App to gather real-time transfer status updates as their money moves to their loved ones. Other key features of the Xoom App include the ability to review Xoom’s low fees, check exchange rates, contact customer service and access links to other Xoom services.
