Premium-Inhalt. The much-anticipated Google Wallet app debuts today--for now, available only on the Sprint Nexus S 4G phone. The app is the latest to use Near Field Communications (NFC) technology to facilitate payments--customers pay for items in brick-and-mortar shops by tapping their phone to a vendor's PayPass reader, a small box for transmitting data that can be found in major retailers like Macy's, Whole Foods, and McDonald's. To get its app off the ground, Google partnered with MasterCard, which has been using NFC chips on some of its credit cards , and originally developed the PayPass reader. I took Google's out for a spin in San Francisco, and while it's extraordinarily cool when it works, the experience isn't seamless yet. The app itself stalled for a good 20 minutes once while registering a payment, but other than that it was really simple to use. More important, I found that the PayPass readers in merchants' stores were often broken or malfunctioning, something Google and MasterCard need to fix quickly if this app is to become the revolutionary new method of payment it promises to be. Setting It UpCurrently, the app works only on the Sprint Nexus S 4G phone, which is built with a special NFC antenna, and a chip that Google calls its "secure element," which strictly controls transmissions from the NFC antenna and stores your payment information separately from your phone's main OS. The Google Wallet app currently links only with Citibank MasterCards or Google Prepaid Cards (which you can use to load money from other debit accounts), although Google says it hopes to support all soon. Finally, you can use Google Wallet only at the select vendors that have PayPass readers at the cash register. When I received the phone, Google had already set up a PIN for me to access Google Wallet. Entering the PIN turns on the phone's "secure element" chip, allowing transmissions between the NFC antenna and the PayPass reader. When the PIN isn't entered, the chip is turned off, and when the phone's screen is off, the NFC antenna is off, so that you can't, say, have the phone in your pocket and "accidentally" purchase something, or have your money stolen via a malicious NFC reader while you're on the train, for instance. By default, the app forces you to reenter the PIN every 5 minutes, but I found it somewhat annoying to reenter this number every time I wanted to check something in the app. I settled on 15 minutes. Within the Google Wallet app, you can view the cards linked up to your phone and select a default payment card, but there are also options to add and use loyalty cards (if you frequent a vendor that offers these, you can manage your transactions through this), discounts from Google Offers (any coupons you might receive through Google Shopper will be pushed to this part of Google Wallet), and you can view your payment history. Payment history in Google Wallet can tell you only what card was used and what time the transaction occurred, and you can opt in to use the phone's GPS to attach a location to each purchase. However, the app's payment history folder , so you still have to keep your receipts. Once I selected the Google Prepaid card to be my default card, I went out to use it.
