As 9to5Mac notes, Square did more than improve the technical performance of the app. This iteration cuts out a step for customers checking out, and so users no longer have to tap “Pay Here” to be added to the customer list of a store. They simply have to tap the store they’re in.
This release comes just two months after Square added the ability to send gift cards to friends from within the app. Unfortunately for Android users, this update is iOS only for now.
