    Now it looks like they've substituted a comma for the decimal point. so my iPad Square app may actually be computing correctly, but threw me
    off by putting a comma where the decimal point used to be. I don't know why they did that, but I'll try using it this way and see. I still don't like
    the fact that I have to do this with a customer looking on.

    After the new update my IPad won't read my square reader, says it's connected but NOTHNG happens when you slide the card. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but that did nothing. Anyone know how to fix this? I really don't want to go to the Apple store..

    Have you contacted Square? Maybe the Square Register app hasn't been updated for iOS 7 compatibility yet. The app was last updated on the 17th of September.

    I've had the Square reader I believe since they first came out but I have used it little. I did use it last weekend at a local trade show and in checking it out before I went to the show I discovered that it would not work with my iPhone 5 or I wife's iPhone 4S.

    The problem with the iPhones is that we have them in OtterBox cases and the OtterBox is too wide to allow full insertion of the Square reader so the reader makes no connection. I ended up using the iPad (in an Apple case) and everything worked fine.

    I contacted Square and they were unable to offer a solution other than the possibility that an extension might be available from other sources that could make it work.

    Since my needs are personal rather than professional I will probably look for a different brand of reader that might have a longer stem that will work with my OtterBox cases.

    I should add that I used it before the iOS 7 upgrade became available.
