Some aps are better than others at this.
The Bank of America app for iOS does a good jog of giving you
directions and then automatically snapping the pic when it’s
right. I was surprised to find that the app for a local bank
I’ve been evaluating did this as well. I am finding a few
holes in it, but overall the app and web site designed by
Computer Services Inc. (CSI) seems to work pretty well. A tell
may be that when you go to online banking the web site address
reads yourbankname.mybanking.net. One caveat though, the
security lacks true two-factor authentication. As much as I
want to perf local business over mega corporations that don’t
have my interests at heart, this may ultimately be a deal
breaker for me.

You have to take pictures of the front
and back of the check.
Well, yes, as that's how any mobile banking app gets the data
necessary to deposit the check and to have the legally
required images (when the bank processes the checks normally
they're scanned, and images are saved).
When it comes to things like this, it's always easier to
enlist sighted assistance, once, to get a "photo rig" set up
for your smartphone. I've done this on multiple occasions,
and not just for banking apps, so that the phone can be placed
on top of the rig (which is usually a small cardboard box, cut
into what amounts to a small table with an opening large
enough for the smartphone's camera to be able to take photos
of items placed "on the floor" (table top or desk top in
reality) beneath the rig. Once set up this tends to work like
a charm for as long as the rig remains viable.
