PayPal Refreshes iPhone App, Adding New Look and Local Search

PayPal has recently launched an update for its iPhone app. The updates offer an entirely new design, which is far more appealing than what it looked like in last version of the app. The latest update will bring back the ‘Local’ feature that used to show vendors that accepted PayPal.

In an updated version, the Local section will show users merchants available close by that use the new PayPal Here service particularly. It is the new service PayPal launched recently to compete with the already popular service Square. The service in fact needs a different PayPal Here app available on the App Store, and is available for merchants only.

PayPal refreshes its application in order to offer quick access to managing your account, sending money and requesting money from people. The previous version was certainly lagging behind on many fronts and the latest version is also not as good as it could be, but yet it addresses many issues, particularly the speed at which you are able to navigate between different options.

Many people including me turn to mobile version of PayPal particularly to check on available balance or to verify if payments went through as well as to pay a friend for the occasional lunch if anyone forget to bring his/her wallet. One can easily notice that apart from heavy eBay users or event organizers, the updated application would be a nice upgrading and will offer pretty handy features required by users.

Surprisingly, the look of the PayPal Here application is very slick and smoother than the newly released application, which normally gives you a very “Hey look, I’m your wallet” like feel.
