PayPal is an app that gives you complete access to your PayPal account right from your iOS device, so you can review transactions and make payments. You can even use this app to order food from a local restaurant or pay for your purchases at some area businesses.
Pay with your phone: The app can find businesses close to you that will accept PayPal as payment when you enter your mobile phone number and PIN at checkout. That means you can pay straight through PayPal without even opening your wallet.
Complete transactions: Whether you're just sending money to a friend to settle a lunch tab or making a significant purchase, you can do it all from this app. And you don't even have to worry about how much money you have in your PayPal account as long as you have a linked bank account. The app will just draw funds from that account to cover the transaction.
No refunds: The only real function missing from this app that you have access to through the full PayPal Web site is the Refund button. This seems like an odd omission, and it would definitely improve the app's functionality for people who use their PayPal account primarily for online business transactions.
Delivery issues: While the app conveniently comes up with a list of nearby restaurants that you can order food from and pay through the app, not all of them necessarily deliver to your area. You'll have to check that out for yourself separately.
If you use PayPal a lot, this is a great app to have. And even if you haven't turned to PayPal as a primary payment method, this app makes it so convenient in so many situations that it may just win you over.
