    I've used it with a barcode handheld scanner and it worked fine. My question is this : does it work with the supermarket scanner? In other words, how does the cashier scan the barcode? Do they turn the phone upside down and swipe it like a normal card? Does it work ok? I've heard that it doesn't work well and was always too worried about holding up the line. :)

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    I use it at my local super market. They have to use the hand scanner to get it to read. They just upgraded their hand scanners to a newer model. The older model could not read the bar code off the phone, but the new scanners work just fine.

    The old scanner that did not work, projected a red line that they lined up on the bar code. The new scanner projects a box that they center the bar code in. I do have to set the back light to high, but other than that it works great.

    +1 for not working on the flatbed readers. Tried it the other day and it didn't work.

    i tried it at Duane Reade like two weeks ago ... Fail.

    HOWEVER. both the my OS and the app itself have had an upgrade since then ... so I dunno.

    Try it ..... the register guy/gal ... will be automatiically mesmerized, regardless of success or failure. LOL

    This seems like a pretty useless app if you can't actually scan the barcodes...

    It just has to be a hand held barcode scanner. Home depot has no problems scanning my contract number. Flatbed scanners don't work. Just have them manually type in the number. Still a great app my wallet is so much thinner.

    It didn't work with the handheld scanner at A & P but the clerk only tried twice and punched the number in with the keypad. He said the equivalent IPhone app never works too. I've only tried it that one time.
