Company changes app name to avoid confusion with ISIS militant group

An app that allows you to pay for things with your phone is changing its name all because of the crisis in Iraq and Syria. It used to be known as ISIS Wallet.

To avoid confusion with the Islamic Militant group ISIS, they're re-branding to be called Soft Card.

The company's CEO says they plan to launch the new Soft Card app in the next few weeks and customers can then download the update on their phone to have the latest version.
