Works great, but doesn't share or backup This app is great however when I switched from my iphone to my LG G 2 I couldn't restore the app settings because the two apparently don't work together, the passwords use different formats. I emailed the cards to myself and when I opened the email on my new phone, even though CardStar was installed on the phone and I had imported a card to make sure it was working, it still didn't recognize the app. It wouldn't be so frustrating except that I shouldn't have to - it just doesn't work.
Doesn't work on my Nexus 5 I have this app on two other devices. But after installing on my nexus 5, it won't let me sync either with my account (unknown device) or my other devices (allegedly no internet connection, which is funny since I re-downloaded the app on the allegedly missing internet connection). So it rates only one star with me. UPDATE I FOUND A WAY TONSYNC THE APP AND ALL IS WELL NOW. Four stars
So far so good. I was skeptical when a casher told me that she could no longer accept a picture of my loyalty card to apply my discount. Instead she recommended this app. I have loaded 8 cards onto it and used three so far without a problem. Loading was intuitive and easy with and without actual cards to scan. Great concept, great app. I hope to see more stores and loyalty programs using and accepting this program. Thank you!
Card star #1 Love this app! Now I always have all those annoying little cards w me whenever I go! No need to have 10 hanging off my keychain, another 20 stuffed in my wallet. When you need them you can never find them anyway! Not anymore!!! I always have my phone & now I always have all my cards in one convenient place! No hunting, lost cards, or stacks of cards in the way. Thank you for a great app! SO Convenient <3
CardStar 2013 Original review. Great app. Thank you..... Update 7/2014 while trying to transfer all of my cards and contacts to my new phone I emailed CardStar for a question. They emailed me back within just a few minutes and helped me solve the issue I was having with login and syncing. Thank you very much card star I would definitely recommend this app
There are ample reviews describing the valuable utility of the Cardstar app. This comment is to acknowledge Cardstar’s incredible service. I was unable to restore my account to a newly acquired device. I emailed Cardstar support and within 15 minutes received the solution. I suspect that the request for assistance was aided by the email’s inclusion of my Cardstar account number. Storing the account number, and remembering where the number is stored (!), is worth doing.
