It’s in the cards that way
CardStar is a 99-cent iPhone app that replaces all of those supermarket reward, membership and other bar-code cards we all carry. It comes preloaded with more than 130 merchants and companies to which you add your membership number, and you can add others if needed. Then they can be scanned straight from the iPhone screen.
I haven’t seen this actually being used yet. I wonder how well it works out in the real world. It’s not the app I question – it’s the average service worker’s ability to cope with it that I’m thinking about. I can’t wait until we catch up with other countries and this sort of simple little capability becomes commonplace on our phones.
