I was wondering when they were going to finally do something like this. You know those cards that you get from Starbucks where you can get a free app or song? Well, it used to be a pain in the butt to type in all those digits. I was hoping they would eventually use a QR code or something. Once again, they exceeded my expectations and allowed you to just use your camera and it will detect the numbers. This only works on the codes that are in a little rectangle but it looks like most of them are like that now. Pretty cool. If you don't know how to redeem an app I will show it to you here. This should work just fine on either the iPad, the iPhone or even the iPod Touch. Notice below:
Go to the App Store, click on the star at the bottom that says "Featured." Click on the button at the bottom of the page that says "Redeem."
Next click "Use Camera."
Aim your camera at the back of the card where the numbers are. It will do it automatically and very quickly. Pretty cool! Well, there you go. There is another great iPhone Tip of the Day for you.
