The expansion marks its second new platform in the past month (with the first launch specifically for Android users in June).

Oyster is partnered with over 1,600 publishers, and offers access to a diverse library for $10 per month.
If This Then That automation app adds Square integration
Mobile payment service Square has introduced new automation integration with the launch of its If This Then That channel today. IFTTT allows users to create "recipes," which are connections between service and devices (channels) that unlock new ways for services and devices to automatically communicate. Merchants and mobile payment customers can now connect to Square's services through a total of 78 other channels supported by IFTTT, triggered by sales, refund and settlement data from Square. Users can automatically connect Square data to email, push notifications, spreadsheet data and more depending on the operating platform.
