    Default An app to keep all your Membership cards

    A friend showed me an iPhone app that held all his membership cards (Costco, Kroger, Borders, etc), including the bar code for scanning. A search of App Brain found some mediocre apps.

    Anyone know of one they recommend for Android?

    Thanks!

    +1 for KeyRing. I love this app, I've never had a problem with it.

    Good idea but it is kinda embarrassing when you whip out your phone for them to scan and no matter what they can not get it to read the barcode. Two different apps would not work. I know they could read off the number but thats not really the point of the app.

    I don't see how switching apps helps. Either the scanner can scan your screen or it can't. An app won't change your screen's inherent characteristics. Though some barcode scanners seem to work better than others. See if the cashier can try the handheld scanner to see if it helps.

    Personally, I just use the option to supply my phone number in cases where I even want to deal with these ridiculous store card programs. Ideally, I just avoid such stores. Can't wait for the HEB in my neighborhood so I can stop bothering with Kroger.

    I use cardstar, which has a setting that cranks up the brightness when ou choose a card. This seems to help in letting the scanners read the barcode.

    The scanner problem is due to the glass on your device. The laser scanners (Hand scanners) tend to have problems, while the optical scanners (the flat type) can usually read them just fine. At the very least I have my numbers readily available without tons of cards/keychain thingys.

    It also helps to turn down the screen brightness to low and obviously give your screen a good wipe. The handheld scanners work much better as well.

    Just FYI: You can adjust the brightness for each card individually in Key Ring.

    +1 for Cardstar. I've found that it works great and haven't had a problem scanning. I used to have it on my Blackberry and I'm happy I found it for android.

    I used Cardstar on my iPhone for over a year and was pretty satisfied. Now I'm using Cardstar on my EVO and in my experience the hand held scanners have always worked better than the flatbed ones. I'd like to hear more opinions, so maybe we can figure out a way to get better results.

    Remember, if you have problems with scanning, you always have the code number printed bellow the barcode that can be entered manually by you or the cashier.

    So brightness up or down to get a decent scan of the card? I just downloaded the app and they couldnt swipe using a handheld at Blockbuster and a flat at a grocery store.

    don't most stores use your phone number these days so you don't have to carry around that silly card anymore?

    i'm a minimalist and don't shop much regardless.

    Another vote for key ring. It even has a widget for your home screen.

    Yea, but sometimes the phone number doesnt get recognized and they end up putting in a store card for you.

    Costco and Sam's Club, just to name a few...they want the card. Neither use "store cards" as they are membership warehouses.
