A Specialized Payment App for Cashiers: app.Cash for $999.99

Three app.Cash screens

app.Cash claims to be a "stylish cashier system for all purposes." The app is designed to replace the traditional cash register to create sales transactions and receive payments. It even works offline.

Although the app can be used by any business that collects customer data and takes payments, it appears to be tailored for restaurants so that servers can use a mobile device at customers' tables. Menu buttons are available and categorized by food and beverage types so that servers can input customers' orders into the app. A graphic representation of the tables can also be created and viewed to track table numbers and orders.

The app supports two printer models and must be updated by contacting the developer. It's one of the most expensive apps in the App Store at nearly $1,000. However, it claims to be cheaper than a traditional cash register system, making it an attractive option for some businesses.
