    Default 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.

    Then push your own payment app ... I'd consider using it.

    What kind of stupid comment is this? Monopolizing? Sorry but I often have money sitting in PayPal that is transferred from an account that is just sitting there. I would love to be able to use it for apps

    I take your the sort of person that's happy giving your credit/debit card details to every single company you deal with?? I like the fact PayPal offers a bit of security when dealing with people you may not have used before!

    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...
