CardStar stores reward cards in Android phones, scans barcodes in-store [Videos]


Wednesday 05th of May 2010 / androinica.com
CardStar has released an Android version of its popular card-storing application. Now available in the Android Market, CardStar has arrived to save people from the annoyance of carrying gym memberships, store reward cards, and other scannable membership cards in your wallet or key ring.Rather than deal with membership cards clogging up your pockets, CardStar saves a barcode containing your membership number and information. Users need only to go to a store, open the membership card while waiting in line, and then have a clerk scan the barcode displayed on screen. Key rings and wallets across the country just shed some bulk.Here’s a video showing how easy it is to add membership cards and then use them in store. I was unable to test if CardStar works on flatbed scanners because I don’t have any reward cards that use it.

How to scan QR Codes for threats with Norton Snap App


Saturday 24th of March 2012 / android.gs
Most of us nowadays tent to use QR codes for sharing links or things like that, but I am sure that many people are still unaware of the danger that can hide behind something as simple as a QR code. Scammers and ill intended people will always want to gain access to the personal data of others, and in a world where smart phones have become mobile computers, they will want to get inside your mobile device. Using an app like the Norton Snap could well save you the hassle of getting your favorite device infected with a virus, worm or other malicious coding.The Norton Snap app is like another firewall, only designed specifically for QR codes. Since us humans can’t read or make sense of any QR code, an app that can sort the bad ones from the good ones might come in handy. In order to do so, this app sends the website hidden in the code to the Norton Safe web servers and tells you whether the site you scanned is potentially harmful for your device.Norton Snap was designed to read 2D barcodes, such as QR codes and Data Matrixes, which are fairly common in the Android world. Basically, this

PayPal In-Store mobile payment app comes available for Android, UK for now - Android Authority


Friday 01st of June 2012 / androidauthority.com
Mobile payments may have gained some ground in the States.. but in the U.K. it has yet to make its mark. It seems like PayPal wants to be ahead of the pack as the online payment service provider just launched the PayPal In-Store Android app. The app is available now on Google Play but only for UK PayPal members.What’s rather odd about the PayPal In-Store app is that it does not use NFC technology but generates unique barcodes that are then assigned to each PayPal account. The app also uses a four-digit PIN for security purposes. This is pretty understandable since most PayPal customers are probably still using Android phones or tablets which are not NFC-capable.PayPal’s In-App Store mobile payment app can now be used in some UK stores such as Oasis, Warehouse, Coast and Karen Millen. And PayPal promises to bring in more participating stores soon.Wondering how the app works? Here goes the simple steps. Install the app first, proceed with your shopping spree, generate a unique barcode and number before you make a payment, and then show the barcode to the shop attendant. The

google play store - How to utilize those Market QR codes?


Wednesday 21st of December 2011 / android.stackexchange.com
Once in a while I see a description of a program that is to be installed via Android market. It is often accompanied by a two-dimensional barcode looking like a QR code that I guess somehow contains a link to the right Market page and the process of using it should be very easy.I've searched and the closest thing I found is this question about reading QR Codes which makes me think it shouldn't be that hard and so I can't see whether that question is about the same usecase I'm asking about.How exactly to make use of such barcodes? What's the way to proceed from the QR code on a web page to Market page?

how MUCH better is the inspire than a blackberry bold?


Friday 25th of March 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
I am tired of my inspire barely getting through a day, battery-wise. I like having a real keyboard on my Samsung Propel a year ago, and I'm thinking about switching to a Blackberry 9700. I mainly use the phone to text, tweet, check facebook, get directions, scan barcodes, and occasionally watch tv shows. I like having different text messaging tones for different contacts. I've never had a blackberry before, but I've read a lot on forums about how people are moving to android from blackberry and they'll never go back. Is it really that much worse? Please advise a newbie.
