Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey recently announced his new company, Square. Square will soon be available on the iPhone and iPod Touch, and allows anyone with a device and a Square account to accept credit cards as a form of payment.

I'm far more likely to carry a debit card than cash — I could use an app like this to pay my friend back for the $10 she lent me last week. Plus, since the device plugs into the headphone jack in your mobile device, versions for Android phones and BlackBerrys can't be far behind.

It's the latest in mobile payments, which are quickly becoming a trend. Taxi Magic, the app that lets you find and pay for a cab in many major cities, is still one of my favorites. Have you used an app to make a purchase? Would you?
