Is Square Planning On Making A Windows Phone App?
By on August 9th, 2012

Square, the company that plans to bring the way we pay for goods and services to the 21st century had a pretty big announcement yesterday. Starbucks will be rolling out Square throughout their stores over the fall, allowing customers to use their smartphones to pay for coffee and other products at many Starbucks stores. On top of this, Starbucks also made a $25 million investment in Square.

In the midst of the big news, Square founder Jack Dorsey hinted at the possibility of a Square app for Windows Phone while talking to Engadget. He vaguely said this: ”We will definitely build for where the users are, and we’re excited about the Windows Phone interface.” As of now, the Square app is only available on iOS and Android.

It goes without saying that the Windows Phone platform really needs more quality apps. While there’s a considerable quantity of apps in the Marketplace, that means nothing to users if they won’t be able to get their favorite apps on the platform. As of now, when it comes to apps at least, iOS and Android are the safe bets for consumers.

    Windows Phone 8 is expected to be big for business users, a square app will just entice that market even more. I know many people who use Square on Android and iPhone.
