Mobile Future

SmartWallet

Square, the mobile payment company, recently announced the release of its Card Case App which is taking mobile payments to the next level by literally transforming smartphones into virtual wallets. 

As the NYTimes article explained, the new app- which looks like a wallet once opened up- allows customers to set up virtual tabs at participating Square businesses and checkout by giving the cashier their name.  The customer’s picture then pops up on the cashier’s end for verification and Square digitally sends customers their receipts.

The Card Case App also lets customers view menus and search for restaurants based on user’s location.
