Many, many people who run their own small business are undoubtedly familiar with Square. Or at the very least they have a passing familiarity with it. It’s the sort of thing that’s great for an artist selling their work at a show, or even an entrepreneurial babysitter, but some businesses need a bit more than that.

ShopKeep Mobile is meant to be that little bit more. It’s a cloud-based system that uses Griffin’s Olli hardware to provide business owners with a point of sale system they can carry around in their pocket. Registers can be set up quickly (accepting credit cards and cash), inventory can be tracked, and sales reports can be viewed in real time – plus it’s integrated with QuickBooks. It can search through inventory, manage a customer database, use email receipts, adjust pricing for sales, connect with a printer for more traditional receipts and reports, includes a barcode scanner and a credit card reader/swiper, and can be used offline if necessary. Basically it’s designed to be an alternative to using more typical register setups. Kind of like the Apple Store when you think about it.

ShopKeep Mobile is still in beta but you can register on the site to be kept informed of its progress. Of course there’s also the slightly less mobile ShopKeep POS system for iPads that’s already available if you can’t wait to get started.

While credit card readers like Square are targeted toward end users who may want to collect occasional credit card payments, for those who are looking to make the iPhone a major part of their retail business, Cashier Live is hoping to fill that void.

The app can transform the iPhone into a full point-of-sale device. Barcodes can be scanned with the camera to be added to an order. Receipts can be emailed to customers. Inventory can be managed with the app, and the app can be integrated with Milo to help keep track of inventory. Reports can be tracked with the Cashier Live website from any computer’s web browser. While cash and check payments can be handled through the app, adding a Linea Pro scanner can add credit card payments along with a traditional barcode scanner to the iPhone. This all works with the iPod touch as well. Cashier Live is free to download, and new users can sign up for a free 30-day trial to use the service.

The Seventh Sign: Hodappy Bird Released on the App Store

While simultaneously mocking and yet contributing to the App Store clone madness around Flappy Bird, Hodappy Bird has been released by Madgarden. And the whole Flappy Bird thing implodes upon itself. As Ryan Evans described it, it’s “the Citizen Kane of Flappy Bird clones.” It’s the ultimate move of App Store ridicule, mocking them from […]
