(KTVI)- Some new competition may take a bite out of ‘Apple Pay’. The company ‘Softcard’ has just launched a free app for Windows and Android phones.

The ‘Softcard’ app will allow you to pay for goods by simply tapping your phone on the wireless pad. You will need to obtain a special encrypted SIM card in order to take part in the service.

Those cards are available for free from AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile.
