    It's available for (some) older phones now. Wasn't available for my Xiaomi previously, but is now. Installed ok and used it a couple of times. Has worked so far.

    My mum DID come from one. Before she left she said you'd queue, get 1/2 loaf bread and a cabbage, if you were in the first 1/2 of queue. Those at back got nothing.
    She has not panic bought a thing. Nor wants to. She thinks they're all mad.

    More like some people are stupid...especially toilet paper........

    That App was a disaster , why release an app that wont work on older phones ? You want everyone to use it, not just those with the latest tech.
    Installed it about a week after it came out originally, worked fine each time I used it.

    Yes, mine is working fine too. I notice many more places now have the app now. I complained a couple of weeks ago about a meeting that is held in a church hall didn't have the app on display. They now have...
    Now-if I could just remember where I left my brain...

    Installed the tracker app today. Haven't used it yet but sure getting tied of the fishwife's in the supermarkets and some stores yelling "Keep your 2 meters" "You can't leave the store until the person in front of you is 2 meters away" etc.. Power has gone to their heads and I live in a small town in the Waikato.

    Bull dust. Nothing wrong with it. I have had it since the beginning, and it works fine, IF businesses are registered and display the Q Code in a place where you can see it. If it is placed on or near the door as you enter you notice it and it reminds you to scan. Some places put it in obscure parts of their premises so I overlook it (or it isn't there at all I suppose).

    I found at the dentist the other day that my phone wouldn't scan, and the receptionist said other people had complained as well. I found that because they had mounted the code too low it was difficult to judge where to place the phone so it could focus. I tried moving the phone further away and more upright and it was fine. I should have told the receptionist it was their placement of the image that was causing the problem, but I only thought of that too late. Dumbass.
