    "I run a dog walking business and sometimes my customers want to pay with their card. This used to be a problem because I had no way of taking their credit card. The problem with that is that it can cost me clients, and when building a business, the last thing I need is to lose people instead of gain. Now with this app, I can take cash or card, right there on the spot when they are trying to pay me. I learned a long time ago: "If a person is trying to give you money, let them." This app is a small business lifesaver."

    "I have a small catering business and I have found this app to be far too wobbly and unstable for my needs. It claims that it can reconcile, send invoices, send quotes, create expense claims and record receipts right on the spot, however, sometimes when you generate a command, the app crashes, so you are left with an uncertainty feeling of whether or not you charged your client. It's also missing a lot of basic functions that's required for people who use this app like inability to see total outstanding expenses, inability to add addresses on invoice, etc."

    "By now, I think everyone's heard of PayPal, and now that I've got it, I don't know why everyone hasn't started using it yet! It's so convenient for everything, from buying and selling online to paying my rental fees. I keep a separate bank account for PayPal because I'm worried about security, but overall the convenience is unbeatable."

    "Being a small business owner I am always on the lookout for ways to make my life easier. While this app has good intentions it falls short. The user face is very complicated and it is glitchy to use. They need to go back to the drawing board. "

    "Google Calendar is a great tool for utilizing multiple calendars and sharing with others, such as family members. However, I don't think I would classify it as a retail app."
