Stocard—Wow, why my wallet become flattened

Stocard within high-tech-camera scanner enables you to add loyalty cards within seconds.The app has received generally positive reviews – it’s rated 4.6 stars on Google Play.

Now there has a multitude of activities about discounts and offers. But you must carry a heavy wallet because of so many cards. It’s like that you should crowd the subway while there are large of people. There are some people find the question. Therefore, I found an app called Stocard that can be content for people. Let’s see the charm of it.

Stocard has been discovered through a Germany team. Stocard was founded in Mannheim, Germany in May 2011 and since the Series A financing in early 2016, it has launched two new offices in Italy and Australia to boost collaboration with local retailers. The app has received generally positive reviews – it’s rated 4.6 stars on Google

On the Stocard, there are more than 1800 retailors –watson, Si el Hotel, Starbucks, IKEA and RT-MART etc. Stocard within high-tech-camera scanner enables you to add loyalty cards within seconds. To add a card, you just use your phone’s camera to “scan” the barcode of your key tag and add it to your database. You then choose from a list of stores. If you have one that’s not on there, you can add it in as an “other loyalty card”.

When you are on a road trip and every shop, you can abandon heavy plastic cards. You just let the casher scan your barcode on the app. It’s fabulous.

Stocard can provide us with nearly discount about your added retailers. Stocard are also made for Android Wear. Stocard displays cards in order of most used, last used, or alphabetical. It’s very easier and more convenient. The clerk can scan digital card on the watch through the quadruple paned bullet-proof glass when you are checking out.

The Stocard idea was conceived six years ago at Bondi Beach, where the company’s founders, burdened with a multitude of cards, vowed to find a better way. He thought that it is not like Snapchat which targets a very specific demographic. Instead, it should combine simplicity with powerful features in an uncomplicated way for anyone no matter what sector they are in. Mr Handlos also said that people will no longer be scanning their plastic cards into our Stocard, there will be just one digital ¬platform in three or four year. Let’s waiting and seeing.

Stocard recently announced its latest financing round from Silicon Valley-based Rocketship.vc. This can help Stocard achieve next mission from browsing offers to paying at the POS.

Free App of the Week: Chameleon Run Makes You Addicted Instantly

Published by the “Top Developer” on Google Play Store, Noodlecake Studios Inc, Chameleon Run tagged as Editor’s Choice on iOS App Store is a unique, fast and challenging autorunner with a colorful twist.

Published by the “Top Developer” on Google Play Store, Noodlecake Studios Inc, Chameleon Run tagged as Editor’s Choice on iOS App Store is a unique, fast and challenging autorunner with a colorful twist. Jump, switch and run through expertly crafted levels that will have you running back for more. Chameleon Run is such a wonderfully amazing game! I was addicted almost instantly. It provides such a nice, calming atmosphere, all while you rage over repeated failed attempts to reach the fabled crystal at the end of the track. It is very challenging at some points, yet it has such a simple and straightforward theme.

The one caveat, like many other reviewers say, is the number of levels which left me wanting just a bit more. However, I respect the time and effort that goes into each and every amazing level, and I greatly appreciate the developers of this great, time-consuming game. And, what’s more, it’s free–without any in-app purchases!

I have to admit that I haven’t been hooked to a mobile game in years! But this little jewel got me coming back for more!! Minimalist and simple gameplay and controls its what makes it so awesome. Starts of easy, but the real challenge comes after the first few levels. One wrong move and your dead, but there’s no lives or IAP which is great, you just keep retrying the level until you master it. Then you have the simple challenges which will unclock extra levels.

The only bad thing about this games is that it is “relatively short”, there are like 20 levels, including the tutorials. I sure hope that the publisher will add more, I’m even willing to pay for them!
