Google Wallet has finally arrived for iPhone, two years to the day after it launched on Android.

Though the Android incarnation has been NFC-enabled from the get-go, naturally the iOS version lacks this functionality given that NFC isn’t native to any of Apple’s mobile devices. And as with Android, this is available to download in the US only.

You can scan your debit and credit cards into the app, and use them to send money to anyone in the US who has an email address, and you can store credit and debit cards, loyalty programs, and more. It can also be used to pay for things on Google Play, and shop on some mobile websites.

Google Wallet will work on devices with iOS 6.0+.
