Mercedes-Benz Financial has launched the first auto finance app for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

You can play games, snap and send pics, even check whether a shelf is level.  So it’s probably no surprise you can now pay your car bill on your smartphone.

Mercedes-Benz Financial has launched the first automotive financial service app for the popular Apple iPhone.  The free download (which you can get by clicking here) gives Mercedes Financial customers access to a wide range of services.  They can check an account summary, request payoff information and, for those always on the go, pay their monthly bill, as well.

“We recognize the need for multiple communication channels in today’s mobile environment,” says Franz Reiner, Vice President, Mercedes-Benz Financial.  “The iPhone App provides our customers with another means to communicate with us.”

The captive finance subsidiary is launching a marketing campaign dubbed, “The Coolest Way to Pay,” to promote the new iPhone app.  It can also be used on the iPod Touch, as long as the device has access to the Internet using a WiFi connection.

About 450,000 customers currently use Mercedes-Benz Financial services.
