iPhone gets 'refined' interface

Square has released a major update of its iOS transaction app, bringing the software to v2.0. On the surface the title has a more "refined" interface, more subdued than in earlier versions. The most important addition is that of product variations on the iPad, allowing to vendors to list slight differences for their goods such as sizes, colors or flavors.

The iPad also gives vendors access to "shelves," which make it easier to browse through products. Each item in a category is displayed alongside an available image. Both the iPhone and iPad incarnations of the app have meanwhile been given unspecified minor bugfixes.

The app supports any iOS device running iOS 4.0 or later. Though a free download, using it requires a Square account and the matching card reader. Business and individual sales are supported.
