Square has updated its very popular credit-card charging app for small businesses and released the Square Card Case, announced this past May.

The Square app has been updated to improve transaction speed, add support for $0.00 price points (so merchants can keep track of notes on orders like 'no cheese') and stopped requiring signatures for purchases under $25.

As for the new Square Card Case, it's designed to enable quick and easy repeat purchases at businesses that support Square. It allows users to browse menus, see specials, store receipts and pay without needing a credit card. Users can open a "tab" with a business and allow their saved credit card information to be charged without ever needing to physically hand the card to the merchant.

For users who frequent businesses that support Square, the Card Case can save a bit of time checking out. For businesses, the standard Square app is an extremely popular tool to enable quick and easy credit card purchases.

Square is now processing more than 1 million transactions and $100 million in mobile payments per month, and the company expects to double this volume by October.

Both the Square app and the Card Case are available free on the App Store.

Is there a need to have both the Square app and the Card Case app? It appears that the Card Case app also accepts payments, therefore, eliminating the need for the Square app.

This thing ROCKS

We use it to keep track of all of our customers payment information. It is a very easy to use program and Im excited to see what all of the new features will be that they keep hinting at with these updates.
