Englewood Cliffs, NJ (PressExposure) January 24, 2012 -- MyEchain, the first iOS App offering the ability for iPhones, iPads, and iPods to carry thousands of loyalty rewards cards digitally, a barcode scanner to find product prices and availability online, and a QR code reader to interact with quick response advertising has released new versions of their paid and free iOS apps.
Cuppertino, CA (PRESS RELEASE) January 12, 2012 - MyEchain, a leading loyalty card app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod has released an update for their rewards card app on the Apple App Store. New features include enhanced barcode technology to render all types of retail store rewards cards directly from your iPhone. This loyalty card app for iPhone also now gives you the ability to show barcodes horizontally on your phone. This allows you to show your iPhone to clerks at retail stores and allows them to more easily scan your rewards card directly from your iPhone.
This groundbreaking app still boasts a trifecta of apps all-in-one. The core features includes all the functionality for barcode scanning, QR code scanning, and of course digitally storing your loyalty and rewards cards on your phone for scanning at retail and store locations. The company's tag line states, "1,000 Rewards Cards In Your Pocket" and this is a good description of this iPhone rewards card app.
With over 100 million iPhone sold in 2011 and over 62% of Americans belonging to loyalty programs, the marriage of the technology and customer relationship management programs has shown fast adoption among consumers. "It's now becoming more and more common for store clerks to be ready to accept your phone to scan your loyalty card through your phone since they get them so frequently in stores", says MyEchain Marketing Manager, James McLaughlin. "Our downloads of the MyEchain paid and free iPhone loyalty card app are growing exponentially."
The new features of the app build upon the convenience of the app by making it even easier than it was to get your card scanned in quickly and from a further distance using a scanner in store. The new bar code rendering combined with a horizontal orientation across the length of the screen truly make a seamless experience for the consumer using their phone as well as the clerk easily scanning in the rewards card from the iPhone.
And they can use the MyEchain app worry free since all of a consumer's cards will be saved on their phone and backed up in the cloud in case they lose their phone or need to reset their phone's software. Not only are consumers cards backed up in the cloud, they are securely stored with a LOCK and password pin feature for additional safety.
Convenience is a big factor in the adoption of the rewards cards scanning from iPhone and just the beginning of how it can be leveraged by retailers to create fun and unique experiences for their customers. With MyEchain continuing to release new versions of their app and improve the experience for it's users, it's clear this is the iPhone loyalty card app that will make consumers' lives easier, one scan at a time.
MyEchain is a loyalty cards / membership cards / rewards cards app that allows you to digitally store thousands of your cards in one central location on your phone. In addition it offers you a barcode scanning app on your iPhone and a QR code reader. This makes the MyEchain app, truly the "Swiss Army Knife" of mobile shopping and savings.
