There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a bank and American Express may have given potential clients one more reason to pick them by launching the Amex for Android tablet app. The app allows American Express cardholders to review charges, pay bills, and take care of most of their banking needs.

Right now, the app supports the following features, with more being added:

  • Scheduling a payment
  • Checking your balance
  • Viewing your recent charges and payments
  • Managing all your card accounts
  • Viewing your membership rewards point balance
