Square Register, the point-of-sale app that works alongside the Square credit card reader, has just been updated to version 3.0. Version 3.0 of the universal app brings two sets of improvements, one set for its iPhone edition and another for its iPad edition. For iPhone, Square Register 3.0 introduces an item library, an enhanced payment pad, custom tipping, and a new look. With the new item library in Square Register for iPhone, you can easily add items to a sale. You can build your item library, even customize items with photos, names, and prices, to make checkouts quicker. The iPhone app's smarter payment pad also works to that end. It lets you add multiple custom amounts to a sale, add notes to each amount, and view or edit all amounts before charging. The newly updated Square Register for iPhone now also lets customers enter custom tip amounts. In addition, it carries a new design for recording amounts and editing settings.
