Say goodbye to clunky cash management. Hello Square Up.

Tired of clunky cash registers like everyone else? The customer transacation process has long suffered from a lack of innovation. Enter the Square Stand - an elegant square stand with a credit card swiper that has the ability to integrate with other printers and scanners. Now there’s something we can all respect. 

Interested customers can pre-order the stand online for $299; it will be available for purchase in Best Buy stores and other select retailers starting the week of July 8. Square Stand currently works only with an iPad 2 or 3, but a version for tablets with Lightning connectors will be available later this year. Beginning May 15, a handful of local merchants around the country will run their business using the Square Stand.

iPhone App Makes Map Navigation Easier to Visualize

Crossfader has developed Version 1.4 of AR-MAPS, an iPhone app that supports augmented reality (AR) on maps. AR is one of visualization solutions. This map application represents the ground on the bottom half of the screen, showing a map there. On the top half, it shows a video, with AR tags attached to destinations on it. This makes navigation easier to visualize.

Compared with the first version, the new version has features to reduce battery consumption, such as powering the camera down when not in AR mode. Also, if the iPhone is fixed in place, such as in a car, the mode can be set not to change if the phone’s orientation is changed.
