Square Replaces Wallet App With Square OrderBy: Chris Crum - May 12, 2014
Square has pulled Square Wallet from Apple’s App Store and Google Play, reportedly killing the service in favor of a new app called Square Order.
Square Wallet, which never gained much traction with consumers, is indeed gone from the app markets, but only Apple’s so far has Square Order. It’s description says:
Square Order is the easiest way to order for pickup from local shops, cafes, and restaurants — available in SF and NYC. Choose items you would like to pick up and they will be ready when you arrive.
Users can find what they want from a local business, pay and tip from their phone ,and get a notification when the order is ready. Whole Foods is named as a bigger store that’s using it. That’s no surprise given that the companies announced a partnership earlier this year.
While Order is only available in New York and San Francisco at launch, Square says it will be adding new places every day. Users can suggest local businesses, and Square says it will reach out to get them started.
The only Square apps currently in Google Play are Square Register and Square Cash.
Last month, Square launched Square PIckup for Square Market.
