CardFlight intends to incorporate Apple's fingerprint scanning technology into SwipeSimple, its mobile payment application for businesses. 

The news follows Apple's announcement on June 2 that it will open its TouchID fingerprint authentication technology to third-party developers this fall as part of the release of its iOS 8 operating system. Apple introduced TouchID last year as part of its iPhone 5s, which can use fingerprints to authenticate iTunes purchases.
