iOS and Android updates

Jack Flintermann on May 27, 2016

Over the past few months, we’ve made a few changes for iOS and Android that might be useful for your apps:

NewApple Pay in Canada, Australia, and Singapore

In addition to customers in the U.S. and the U.K., you can now accept payments in your app via Apple Pay from customers in Canada, Australia, and Singapore.

NewAndroid Pay in the UK

As announced at Google I/O last week, you can now accept payments using Android Pay from customers in both the U.S. and the U.K. (We’ve put together a guide to get started.) You can also sign up to get notified when it’s available in Australia and Singapore.

NewSupport for Discover cards

We’ve added support for Discover cards to both Apple Pay and Android Pay. If you’re currently accepting Apple Pay payments, just update to the latest version of our SDK. No changes are required to your Android app.

NewMobile viewport control

We recently released an open-source JavaScript library that helps create full-screen modal views in mobile browsers. This can be especially useful in displaying a distraction-free payment screen, but we hope it comes in handy for other uses as well.

While we’re talking about mobile things, we’ve been adding all sorts of polish and tweaks over the past couple of months to our iPhone Dashboard. For example, if you’ve any transfer issues, we now show a tappable link to call your bank. And based on your feedback, we’ve also added a weekly view to your account charts.

Feedback is always always welcome—we’d love to hear any thoughts on the above, or about anything else you think we should add that’d make building mobile apps with Stripe better.
