Square has added yet another way for users of their Cash app to make simple mobile payments. Version 2.1 of the app allows users to locate other users nearby and send them cash over Bluetooth. Here's how it works according to the press release: "With Cash for iOS 8, customers can now choose to make themselves visible to anyone in the same space as them, or just to friends. The app can detect other Cash customers within 250 feet of the sender or recipient - making payments quick and convenient. The app update for iOS 8 also includes the ability to swipe a push notification to approve and reject a payment request."
Cash is a free app for Apple devices which allows users to send or request money from anyone using an email, phone number or Bluetooth. The app can be used to split dinner bills, to remind your friend that he lost that $10 bet and so on. Money received through Cash is deposited directly to your bank account within 1-2 business days, depending on your bank.
Cash is available for free on the Apple App Store. It supports all devices running iOS 6 or later, but you will need iOS 8 to access the new features found in version 2.1.
