Square , the small gadget that can enable a cellphone to accept credit card payments, launched Tuesday, with applications for the iPhone, iPod Touch and Android. The app for the iPad became available a month ago at the launch of Apple's tablet computer.
The newest start-up from Twitter creator Jack Dorsey has begun taking orders for the plastic credit card-swiping gizmo on its website .
Each user can claim one Square device free of charge. The gadget is plugged into the headphone jack on a supported device and interfaces with the companion software.
