The following is correct at time of publication – May 2021.
Goodtill’s applications will run on any tablet with the required operating system version.
All Goodtill's iOS applications (POS, KDS, Stock) require iOS 11.
Please note that this will be changing to iOS 13. Any new iPads purchased should be able to support iOS 13 or above.
Any Apple iPad capable of running iOS 11 is supported by these applications. Currently the oldest supported devices are the iPad Air and iPad Mini 2. For security reasons we recommend using an iPad that is still receiving security updates from Apple. Therefore the earliest models we would recommend are iPad Air 2 (2014) and iPad Mini 4 (2015). You can check which iPads support the latest version of iOS on the following wikipedia page. iPad Pro devices with larger displays are also supported.
The Goodtill CDS application requires Android version 5.0 or higher. It is designed to run on tablets with a minimum display size of 7″. We recommend running the CDS application on a recent model of Kindle Fire tablet.
Please be aware that minimum operating system versions required by Goodtill apps will change over time, therefore we recommend using recent hardware when possible.
Test Flight requires iOS 13
The Apple Test Flight app, required to install beta versions of Goodtill apps, requires iOS 13. Therefore you must use a recent model iPad to install Goodtill app betas.
USB & ethernet devices
For connecting Apple iPads to USB devices, Goodtill recommends using the official Apple Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter as third party adapters have proven to be less reliable. This adapter can be combined with a USB-A to Ethernet adapter in order to provide a wired internet connection.
The following receipt and ticket printers are supported in the latest version of the POS application:
|Star Micronics TSP100||Recommended model for general purpose use.
LAN, USB or Bluetooth models supported.
|Star Micronics SP700||Recommended model for kitchen use (images are not supported).
LAN models supported.
|Star Micronics TSP650||Older model, can be used instead of the TSP100.
LAN and Bluetooth models supported.
|Star Micronics mC-Print2||Receipt paper size is smaller than standard.
LAN, USB and Bluetooth modes supported.
|Star Micronics mC-Print3||LAN, USB and Bluetooth modes supported.|
Please note the 'ECO' models are not supported
All cash drawers with an RJ11 port supported by one of the above Star Micronics printers are supported.
The Star Micronics DK-AirCash is also supported (both LAN and Bluetooth modes).
The Star Micronics BUZZER RMB-24 buzzer is supported for the TSP100 series printers.
Please note that the MC-sound buzzer is for use only with the MC-Print models, and is not yet supported by the Goodtill (coming soon).

Supported hardware is available for purchase on our webstore.
