I love this wonderful app! I tell Everybody About CARD STAR. IT KEEPS ALL YOUR CARDS TOGETHER, WITHOUT HAVING TO CARRY A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT CARDS IN YOUR PURSE OR POCKET. CARDSTAR IS THE BEST#1.!!! :-):-), This is MY UPDATED REVIEW AS OF AUGUST 14, 2014 I STILL LOVE "CARDSTAR"! I SWITCHED PHONES AGAIN, AND ALL I DID WAS PUT IN MY PASSWORD, ALL MY INFORMATION, EVERYTHING DONE!! You're THE BEST APP I EVER USED.:-) :-) :-)😎THIS IS NOW 2016 AND STILL THE "VERY BEST" #1😊😎.Thank you.
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!
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.
I know this sounds like a planted review, but it isn't. I'm simply a very satisfied end user! I can't even begin to tell you how much I hate those little tags hanging on key rings that help get you discounts! Or having to carry bigger cards in my wallet! This app answered that problem! I love it! And when I change phones and reload the apps, this is one of the first apps I download. I simply resync with the server and there's ALL my cards! I have yet to find a place that can't accept the card from my phone through CardStar! This is one of the most useful apps on my phone, meaning it actually works for me to save me money! GREAT APP! I LOVE IT!
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
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.
