As technology progresses, the concept of cash, or physical money, seems less and less relevant with each passing day. With the advent of bank cards, and mobile computing, it’s no longer necessary to carry a wallet filled with bills. It’s not uncommon to see cash registers at stores that don’t accept cash. Every system available now is tailored to businesses, making it easier for consumers to make purchases. But the bank card has a major limitation when dealing with money transfers between two individuals; enter Square.
Square is an iPhone application which serves many purposes. It works for small businesses, and it works for individuals. A free application, that comes with a free Square Reader. This reader plugs into the headphone jack on your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and now Andriod device, and requires nothing more than a WiFi or 3G internet connection to work. Empowering anyone and everyone to accept money transfers through the use of credit and debit cards.
In this article, I plan to explain the full gamut of features Square offers, but later I’m going to share a little story that I think perfectly demonstrates why Square is such a powerful concept. As I mentioned above, Square now offers their app on the Andriod platform as well. But in this article we’re only going to be covering the iOS version.

iOS (formerly iPhone OS) has come a long way since its inception. What began as a simple system with only a few default apps and zero expansion opportunities is now a powerful application platform with desktop-like features such as copy and paste, global search and more.
Despite this notable progress, there’s always room for improvement. Today we’ll go over my personal wish list for the platform then ask for your input on features you’d like to see Apple implement in the future.

With enough users to populate a small planet, Facebook has become the quintessential Internet experience. We’re all hopelessly addicted to it whether or not we agree with some of its business practices.
Since I’m a big fan of the iPhone Facebook iPhone app, I naturally went straight to the App Store when I bought my iPad in search of the iPad version and was quite disappointed to see that one doesn’t exist. In lieu of an official app, today we’ll look at your three primary options for getting Facebook free on your iPad.
Most of us rely on Google Maps and Search to get through the day, and never give the choice much thought. Today we’re going to look at the Bing app for iOS and see if it’s worth switching to a new search engine.
In a world where Google is now used as a verb for searching the web, most wouldn’t consider using any other search engine. That’s why Microsoft surprised the world when it released Bing and now they’ve made it accessible even to Apple’s mobile devices with the Bing iPhone app. There’s no such thing as a perfect search engine, so we’ll take you through the Bing app so you can see what it offers and decide for yourself.
