Looking through the website, www.squareup.com, it looks like there is some pretty good software with the app that can help people manage their business and take a deeper look at transactions. I've really only see these Square Registers at small/local shops so far. I'm not sure what the future brings for Square with Apple and Google introducing Apple Pay and Android Pay. Also, I'm not sure what the future holds for the Square Readers that read credit card magnetic strips. This is becoming obsolete technology, with the new credit card chip law coming out. Square does have a credit card chip reader, but it's not as "cute" as plugging the magnetic strip reader into your headphone jack. I will take safer technology over convenience though.
If I was to start my own business, I would probably pursue using Square. The founder and CEO is Jack Dorsey, also the co-founder and CEO of Twitter. I respect Jack and have confidence in what he'll do with Twitter and Square.
