I like the app for the most part and the new savings account is a great idea. Unfortunately it doesn't allow for the transfer of cents into savings. This makes the tracking of my consignment sales vs. my own items a little more difficult. I like to park the consignment funds into a separate folder until payout. Have to round off. 8/17/22: The app still needs the capability of being able to transfer dollars AND CENTS... not just whole dollar amounts. I still have to use the website instead.

Keeps crashing when the little square bluetooth chip/tap reader is hooked up since last update - not a great thing to happen with an impatient customer standing on front of me. I've had to unpair the reader in the middle of an event (a pain to do!) and do all transactions with the magstripe. Not amused with this last update. Edit - Well the fix was reinstalling the app and re-pairing the reader. It works now but now I've lost ALL my transaction history on my phone from before the last update.

This was the absolute WORST financial app I've ever seen. I went through so much time and trouble to gather all the documents and verification they requested only AFTER I took payments and it was time to cash out. After sending everything over I got a message back saying they were canceling my account. I was in tears and stuck with the embarrassing task of returning payments and getting other forms. I lost sooooo much money messing with Square. I cannot warm people enough. Don't do it!!!
