Wallaby Introduces First Financial App for Google Glass with Launch of Pay With Wallaby

Shoppers view intelligent credit card recommendations through Google Glass to help earn more rewards.

PASADENA, Calif., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wallaby, the leader in mobile and web-based credit card optimization solutions, today announced the launch of Pay With Wallaby for Google Glass. This beta release is the first native Google Glass app to support real-time financial decision making for users of the groundbreaking wearable computing device.

Wallaby's intelligent card recommendation technology uses merchant, credit card, and financial data, combined with the user's personal preferences to optimize payment choices for users. With the average US consumer carrying six payment cards, it is critical to use the right card to avoid fees, save money, and earn more rewards. Pay With Wallaby for Google Glass provides consumers with at-a-glance access to an unbiased recommendation based on Wallaby's industry-leading algorithms and database of credit card promotions and rewards intelligence.

"Helping people to save money and using the best of modern technology are two missions that guide us as a company," said Matthew Goldman, Founder and CEO of Wallaby Financial.  "We think that Google Glass will grow substantially in the near future and we want to be among the first to write helpful, user-friendly native applications that deliver real value via this breakthrough technology."

After successfully installing Pay with Wallaby, users  "OK Glass, Pay With Wallaby" to identify which of their cards they should use at a merchant. Users can swipe through their entire wallet via the app and explore other earnings opportunities. To install Pay With Wallaby, users can visit https://www.walla.by/glass
