Zen Planner recently launched a self-service Kiosk iPad App for fitness business owners. The app enhances the membership management process at gyms, studios, and schools, and improves members’ experience in the gym.

Zen Planner can save you significant time and resources because it automates a lot of the administrative tasks that previously required several hours for staff members to complete, such as billing, payments, and scheduling.

Zen Planner’s easy-to-use Kiosk iPad App also helps staff members save time on administrative tasks by enabling members to check in for class, sign up for memberships, pay drop-in fees, purchase retail items, and sign documents, all on their own. By allowing members to self-serve, instructors are given more time to do what they love and interact with members rather than focusing on these time-consuming administrative tasks.

Whether you travel frequently or trade multiple currencies on a daily basis, a currency converter will always come handy. There’s a handful of them on the App Store, but I’ve realized many aren’t intuitive enough when you need them the most. Indeed, when you’re trying to bargain a price in a local flea market and have to fight with your handheld device to get the conversion rate, you’re not at an advantage. The same applies when converting large amounts you’re trading, especially when you need to do it fast. Thankfully, Smart Coin solves the problem as it’s a gorgeous and intuitive app that takes a one-screen approach, so you get all the information you need at a glance.

Almost 2 years ago, Jack Dorsey and Jim McKelvey founded a company called Square, and released an eponymous service and iPad application that promised to revolutionize the way that people pay and get paid.

Signing up for the free service netted you a free card reader that plugged into the headphone jack and allowed you to take credit card payments on your iOS device. A while later, Square released Card Case, an iPhone app that let you start a tab and pay using your name at any business that utilized the Square system. I’ve been absolutely fascinated by both of these apps, and all of the things that Square has been doing since. So much so, in fact, that I’ve often wished that I had a small business of my own, just so I could use this more often.

We’ve talked about Square before, so I won’t go into the specifics of how the service itself works. Instead, I want to talk about a new addition to the service. Last week, Square added a third iOS app to their lineup: Square Register. Register takes the register-like features of the original Square app, and fleshes out functionality to provide a more POS-like experience. Interested to see what Square Register does for you that the original Square app might not? Read onward!
