Winning redesign. ROAM Data's new "flagship" app features a redesigned user interface worthy of its top-ranked credit card swiper. ROAMpay X is visually appealing and sleek, with customized branding options for merchants. The new app still offers the unique capabilities that made the original ROAMpay shine, namely, voice-to-text data entry and address autocomplete using the caller's phone number. In addition, users can take advantage of basic utilities absent in the original, such as an automated tax and tip calculation and a signature field. Security features such as encrypted mobile readers and ROAM's PCI-DSS certified network put ROAMpay X ahead of the competition.
Pro: A wide selection of credit-card processing providers allows you to 'roam' in search of the best deal.
Con: Less flexible than apps designed for micro-merchants, since it requires a merchant account.
