    I know this is an OLD press release, but I actually had this app a while back and really liked it. I believe they have a similar one for Visa, so I had both my debit and credit cards covered. Only bummer was I had AT&T at the time and not Verizon. Switched over and it's been 4G heaven since.

    Anyway, I'd suggest the new version of the above app if you have MC.
