Default Re: Square - Accept Credit Card Payments through smart phone?

GREAT!!!!!! Just need to practice swiping the card - can't go too slowly.
I use it, but I have the Droid Pro and the swiper is not compatible with my phone yet (only the other Droids). I can still key in the card number which is ok for me even though it's a higher % because I don't do shows, so I hardly ever use it. Awesome invention though! Really comes in handy, especially if someone comes to pick something up and they don't have exact change and I don't have any change... just give me their card instead!!
