Isis mobile wallet becomes Softcard to distance itself from terrorists

The Isis crew promised it would rebrand its mobile wallet to eliminate any confusion with ISIS, the Middle Eastern terrorist group, and today that change is at hand: meet Softcard. It's not a particularly bold name, but the payment company believes that the "inherent simplicity" of its new badging could make it ubiquitous. Whether or not that's true, the transition should happen relatively quickly. You should see the Isis Wallet app transform into Softcard within a few weeks. Traces of the old naming scheme will stick around for a short while, but it should be a distant memory before too long.
