'Pay With Square' Now Supports Android, Revises iOS App
Square today relaunched its Card Case mobile payment application with a new name, Pay With Square. Pay With Square is an application that consumers can use on their smartphones to make mobile payments. Along with the new name, the relaunched application also adds support for Google's Android platform (it was previously available only to iOS). Pay With Square can only be used at select retailers. Customers register a credit card or debit card with the service, and then open up a "tab" at participating retailers. The application will alert the retailers and provide them with a photo of the Pay With Square user when they are in the store, who can then use the app to pay at the register. The Android application features a new user interface that shows a carousel of stores in the vicinity that accept Square. Square also still offers its credit card accessory to small businesses looking to accept credit cards via their smartphone or tablet.
