The camera-ready version of our paper on the analysis of Brazilian bank's apps is finally online at ACM (dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?i…)!
It's time to spread the word!

Alternatively, if you don't have access to ACM, you can get the archived version at secret.inf.ufpr.br/papers/marcus_… We analyzed apps from @Bradesco @itau @Caixa @BancodoBrasil @santander_br @nubank
