Sometimes it slows me down a few seconds BUT I always get my discount (or gas points at the local grocery store) and I don't have to carry a bunch of cards. Works for me!
I noticed the same thing with my Delta app for electronic tickets (barcode) on my iPhone. Most airports have no issue reading them others really struggle. The difference as you point out has been the type of scanner.

Smile apps and websites we use

I am a new Iphone owner and I downloaded the following apps: AroundMe, GasBook, Maps, RestArea Guidebook Galactic, Redbox, RedLaser, TheWeatherChannel, Urbanspoon and Wikipedia.

We also love our Garmin GPS which we use as a backup if our new Ford F350's GPS doesn't do the job for us. We love our Next Exit book for hardcopy info.

We love the websites U.S. Military Campgrounds and RV Parks

In addition to many of those listed, we use INRIX Traffic, MilageKeeper, and RV Check.

Thank you to all who have suggested apps on this and other threads. Have found some great free ones due to you.

Obviously my definition of essential is much different than yours. Essential websites are financial/banking, and email. Every other website I visit is preference.

Hmmm . . . I see your point, guess I was responding to the "what internet tools do you use most often as an RVer?" part of the OP.

That "Key Ring" is a good find, thanks.

One has to decide just what apps are good for them, whether i be RV'ing or not.

If you go to the APP store, type in "Free" you may find some apps in any category that may be of interest to you.

I do like the RV Companion for the leveling software.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
