Pros & Cons:
- Ditch physical key ring and rewards cards to store them all on your Android phone
- Many variables to remember to properly scan, making it difficult to use in practical applications
Key Ring Reward Cards Android App is a cool idea! If you’re like me and hate too much clutter hanging from your key ring, such as retail store bar code rewards cards, but want to reap the rewards… then this Android app is for you. You can scan the bar code of those cards and store them in your phone. Browse through hundreds of store options in the list or type in the name if not available, the app offers options to email stores unlisted for inclusion later. If your bar code scanner doesn’t pick up the code, alternatively you can manually enter the digits. Backup and Restore your personal database of cards to SD storage.
Gripe Alert: As cool as this app is, there are a bit too many variables involved to properly scan the phone with this app, such as; don’t try flatbed scanners at all, try the handhelds and hold the phone about 5-6 inches away, hold it perpendicular to the center of the bar code, prior to scanning dim the screen a bit to not reflect too much light back at the scanner and of course make sure your screen is clean. Plus you have to remember to backup your cards before updating.

Key Ring Reward Cards Android App is very useful for storing all your rewards cards in one place and in the portable device you’ll most likely have with you all the time.
Ease of Use:
The app suffers from ease of use due to some of the constraints mentioned above, however there are ways around this by having the retail clerk manually enter the rewards card number or by mastering the art of scanning the phone (see the vid above).
Potentially used at every retailer you may have a rewards card with.
