If yes, than the posIPOS multi-store point of sale system for iPad is the best choice. On top of beeing able to manage and share your inventory accross multiple business locations, you will be also able to view all the basic and advanced sales reports, as well as monitor all your sales in real time, from one central location, via any web browser, for any and all your stores or restaurants.

Do you need to track and update the quantity of items in your inventory?

If yes, than again the best choice is posIPOS, because it has built-in features that allows you to manage your inventory online from a web browser, or directly from the iPad, like receiving a new quantity of items in your inventory and tracking your stock levels and the quantity of sold or available items in real time.

Do you need to ring sales without an internet connection for an extended time?

While both posIPOS and freePOS can run and ring sales without an internet connection, only posIPOS has the ability to run in offline mode for an extended period of time, because the Apple iCloud storage used by FreePOS has a few limitations regarding the amount of data that can be handled in offline mode.

Are low operational costs very important for your small restaurant or store?

If a low monthly expense is the highest priority for you, and you do not need the inventory management and advanced sales reports offeed by posIPOS, than FreePOS is the best choice. It's the only completely free iPad POS system that we know of, without any setup or monthly fees, that still has most of the features that define a modern POS system for iPad.
