Calling the Square Register App from another App

I recently got the Square credit card reader and while I was playing with it I thought, “Hey wouldn’t it be neat to call the Square Register App from another App?”

iPhone Configuration Utility

Monday, December 17th, 2012

The iPhone Configuration Utility is a program provided by Apple for both Macs and PCs to support provisioning and configuration of Apple devices.

It is very similar to the Xcode Organizer on OS X in appearance and functionality.

With the Configuration Utility you can view the device’s name, iOS version, serial number, device id (UDID), WiFi and Ethernet MAC address and other details.

One of the more interesting things you can view is the console of the device, which means that for developing Passbook passes you can read the debug messages on Windows and do not need to own a Mac.
