PayPal Unveils New Mobile SDK with iOS in Mind
PayPal confirmed via announcement on the company's official blog today that its new mobile SDK enables iOS device users to make in-app purchases through its popular payment service.
"Everyone knows that mobile is changing the way consumers shop and pay, and no one more than developers who must have a mobile presence to compete in today’s environment," writes James Barrese, CTO of PayPal.
Barrese did the honors of unveiling the mobile SDK for developers in hopes that it will reduce friction when it comes to user payments. Thanks to the SDK, customers never leave the developer’s app experience to pay.
Users also gain some impressive choices in how they can issue payment. According to details made available today, app users can, for example, click a PayPal button or scan a credit card using the company's card.io technology.
"We’re making it available for iOS developers first, but we’ll expand to other platforms soon," the executive confirmed.

Just another way for this company to monopolize the game.

Is this even going to be allowed by Apple though? I remember the whole Amazon Kindle App controversy when Apple used their own store and purchasing system to pay for books so Amazon made them pull the app or remove the store. Somehow I don't think Apple will be too happy about PayPal allowing apps to bypass in-app-purchases and use PayPal instead to take a more meatier cut of the overall money and for Apple to get none...
