Braintree Announces Venmo Touch Beta Test for Android, iOS 7

Aug. 8, 2013

Yesterday, in a post on its corporate blog, the lead software engineer at Braintree Payments revealed the company has launched a private beta test of its Venmo Touch system. Venmo Touch, which Braintree acquired with its purchase of the Venmo mobile platform, enables one-touch mobile payments across multiple apps. The new beta test will bring the one-touch capability to Android devices and Apple devices running iOS 7.

“The Android release of Venmo Touch incorporates feedback we’ve received from our iOS partners as well as enhancements and learnings since the initial launch of Venmo Touch at the beginning of this year,” Rob von Behren wrote in the post.

von Behren said the update for iOS 7 includes usability improvements that make single-tap checkout even more seamless for users.
