    Guys and girls hope you can help me il looking to use my iPad for pos when I'm at events ( photography) I have found a few like shop keeper and lots for food service. Also lots of apps that have a high monthly rental on them plus I'm in the Uk and there's not many that support the uk. Can any one help

    If POS means "point of sale," have you looked into the free app called Square? You have to order, from the company, a little dongle that goes into the iPad's head phones slot. When you receive the dongle, you sign up with the company so that you can accept cash, credit or debit card transactions. Then, it's a simple matter of opening the app, swiping the card (or typing in the cash amount) and you are off to the races. Oh, and from what I read, Square's fees are pretty reasonable.

    From wandering around the Interwebz, it appears as if the app is available and can be used in the UK. But, I'd just recommend going to the company/developer's web site and reading up on that, among other things.

    Might that work for you?

    Oh, sorry, my bad. I took a UK news article about it to mean it was available in the UK.

    BUT, thats the only one I knew of. Hopefully, someone else can chime in to help. Sorry.

    PayPal just came out with a service competing with Square. I don't know any of the details, but it might be worth looking into.

    I was afraid of that.

    Being in the U.S. and with nothing to sell, I'm afraid I don't have any other suggestions. Hopefully someone else who knows more will come along an give you some ideas.
