Square has launched a new payments app called Order that will eventually replace Wallet on smartphones. The app carries a lot of the same functions as Wallet, but instead of focusing on the in-store check-in and payment, Order is geared toward ordering food, coffee and goods ahead of time, allowing customers to skip lines and avoid waits when they arrive at a restaurant or store.
Order is going live with merchants in San Francisco and New York first and is available first on the iPhone(s AAPL) and soon on Android(s GOOG), but a Square spokeswoman Semonti Stephens confirmed to me that the plan is to eventually roll out Order nationwide. While Wallet is no longer available in the app stores, Square will continue to support the apps already installed.
