Google Wallet may have started its life as an app designed to let you tap your phone against a tap register to make electronic payments, but adoption hasn’t exactly been spectacular. The good news is that Google Wallet has a few other features: it can act as a virtual wallet for storing customer loyalty cards, for instance, and recently Google added support for sending payment from your linked accounts to anyone using email.

This week Google updated Wallet for Android, making the app available for almost any Android phone. Now it’s also available for iOS — but it’s missing one of the original flagship features. Since Apple’s iPhones don’t feature NFC (Near Field Communication), they don’t support Google Wallet’s tap-to-pay feature.
