Softcard Plays Out the String
March 9, 2015
The other shoe has dropped for users of the Softcard mobile wallet. The troubled joint venture backed by U.S. mobile carriers announced late last week on its Website that the app will cease operation on March 31. The announcement was expected after recent news that Google acquired the Softcard technology and struck a distribution deal with AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless under which those carriers will preload Google Wallet in all the phones sold through their stores.
