PayPal had two new announcements yesterday. First up the company reveals One Touch, a new mobile payments system that will allow people to pay across their favorite apps in a single touch, eliminating the need to enter account details and passwords. One Touch will first arrive for iOS, the Android version is still in public beta phase.
Innovative apps like Jane.com, ParkWhiz, StubHub, Type Tees by Threadless, among others, have already integrated One Touch, the safest way to pay, and will be rolling out the newest version of their apps in the coming days. With One Touch, people can pay across their favorite apps in a single touch, eliminating the need for usernames and passwords each time you pay, while maintaining the trust and security that you expect from PayPal.
Secondly, PayPal announced they've added Bitcoin support to their Braintree SDK. The company is working together with Coinbase, a startup focused on virtual currencies, to roll out Bitcoin payment support over the next couple of months.
