Several years back this company called Square produced a product that let people accept credit card payments on their smartphones using this portable swiper-thingy that plugs into the device's headphone jack. PayPal saw this and decided that it wanted in on this action, so it produced a similar offering known as PayPal Here. The solution worked with phones, but many businesses relying on such products for point-of-sale like to use tablets instead. Now PayPal Here works with those too.

The PayPal Here app's bright and simplistic UI could possibly pass for one designed by Google, though considering how all over the place that company's apps can be, that's admittedly not narrowing things down all that much. Regardless, the design is slick, and it should look great on a stock Android device. Then again, so does Square.

Here's the list of tablets PayPal says it has tested the updated app on (complete with a couple misspellings and errors). The current Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10 make an appearance, as do plenty of Galaxy Tabs. This isn't a comprehensive selection, but it does cover many of the basics.
