4.0 out of 5 stars A Good App With a Few Flaws July 27, 2014
By Kellen

Amazon Wallet is designed help organize and simplify you billfold. If you have trouble keeping track of all of your gift cards and loyalty cards, you may consider giving this a try.

It functions exactly how you'd think. By scanning a bar code or manually entertaining a card number, you can store your cards on your smartphone or tablet. When you need to access a card, simply tap on it and the app will generate a scanable bar code.

Although this app works on both smartphones and tablets, I experienced a few frustrations on my Galaxy Note. First of all, the app functions in portrait orientation only. I have a feeling that Amazon may add landscape orientation in future updates, but until then, be aware of this issue. I also noticed a few glitches in the user interface on my tablet. These glitches were not visible on my Moto X. It is obvious that this app is primary built for smartphones.

The screenshots, provided by Amazon, suggest that you can view your gift card balances. However, this feature did not work with my Belk gift card. The app will not let you manually enter a balance either.

You must be logged into your Amazon account in order to use this app, but this should only be an issue for people who don't stay signed in.

Despite it's flaws, I like where this app is headed. Keep in mind that this is a beta. I'm sure Amazon will make many improvements before its official release.

I tried this but discovered that you have to be logged into Amazon before you can use it. This makes it too much trouble to use for reward/loyalty cards. There are plenty of good apps to use locally on your phone. I haven't tried a credit card yet but if being signed in to amazon is a requirement then this card is a no go for me

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not scan anywhere I try July 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
No merchant I have tried has been able to scan my phone to get the barcode. If it doesn't work anywhere I go, why would I keep it? Plenty of other choices available.

3.0 out of 5 stars Getting there July 31, 2014
Verified Purchase
Amazon Wallet beta is a work in progress at this point in time & developers wanting to perfect an app put it out in 'beta' format so bugs can be found on different platforms & hopefully rectified.
My cellphone is a HTC One M8
The main problem I have had is with the Card scan feature.
It is extremely difficult to get the Barcode into the correct position to get a read. When it does, the Barcode images on 3 out of 4 of my loyalty cards is incorrect.
This maybe as a result of the dual 3D cameras on the HTC One M8. The images displayed of the front & back of the cards is fine.
The developers should have a way to contact them within the app rather than taking flak in the reviews.
Love the idea & is an app I would definitely want in the real world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Save space in your purse or wallet!! September 12, 2014
By minibus
Verified Purchase
I like this - it makes my purse smaller, because I have so many fewer cards to carry. However, I don't like that some places this doesn't work - like the gas pumps at Fred Meyer because you can't angle your phone at the right angle so the scanner can read it. That's my only complaint so far.
