Mobile apps have quickly made logging into a website on your phone to check your bank account, monitor stocks or manage your Twitter account a thing of the past — a fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Optus. It’s previously had several cracks at the app game and its latest attempt, “My Optus” looks like it could be its best yet.

The app, designed to allow users to quickly check their usage, pay bills and view their prepaid balance, is currently average 3.5/5 stars on the Android Market, and 3/5 on Apple’s App Store. I say “best”, because what looks like its previous attempt, Optus My Account, is sitting at 2/5, and it’s not immediately apparent what the difference between the two apps is.
My Optus is new for Android, but going by this post on the telco’s community forums, the iPhone version has been out for about a month.
I’m not an Optus user, which makes it somewhat difficult to test the app, but I can say having such a wide array of programs available is a little confusing. If you give it a try, let us know your experiences in the comments.
