Superb release

Runs very smoothly in my iPhone. Much quicker than previous versions and the payment transaction is especially fast with a well designed large confirmation screen image that I show to the trader. Best way of spending Bristol Pounds. Lots of other useful features too, balance checks, previous transactions, map of traders and of course geolocation to the shop I am in.
