Wallaby App For Google Glass Will Tell You Which Of Your Credit Cards Will Have The Best Rewards Wherever You're Shopping

Wallaby has come to Google Glass, and while it won't save wearers any money in the short-term, it wants to help them rack up those rewards. What kind of rewards? Credit card rewards. Wallaby tells you what credit card will earn you back the most miles, points, or shopping discounts whenever you spend money. It's been available for Android for quite a while, but now the service has made its way over to Glass, where, since it's practically glued to your face, you're less likely to forget about it.

Amazon's Android Shopping App Updated With Amazon Prime Trials, New Payment Methods, And Deals For Canadians

As a tech addict who lives in a remote area, Amazon Prime is a godsend for me: getting stuff delivered to my door quickly when it would otherwise necessitate a three hour round trip is well worth the nominal fee. Amazon hopes you'll agree, and to that end they've now included the ability to sign up for an Amazon Prime free trial right in the official Amazon app.

[New App] Google Shopping Express App Gives San Francisco Residents Mobile Access To Google's Trial Same-Day Shopping Service

An Android app for Google Shopping Express has landed in the Play Store, and while it's available for anyone to download, it still only works in the San Francisco Bay area. I know, that blows, but if you live in the region and take part in Google's trial same-day shopping program, this new app gives you a quicker means to make purchases when your computer isn't within reach. Google has also extended access out to San Jose, so if you're a newly eligible resident who hasn't already signed up for the service, now may be a good time to do so.

[New App] Popular 'Buy Me A Pie!' Grocery List App Now Available For Android, Can Remember More Than Dessert

There are many powerful to-do list apps out there that can be used to help you remember the milk, but given the sheer number of features they provide, relying on these apps for such a singular purpose could feel like overkill. Even the somewhat barebones Google Keep may come with more weight than someone needs for their weekly shopping runs. If you want an app that just strives to do one thing - in this case, be a shopping list - and do that thing well, then you may want to consider Buy Me a Pie!, the latest popular iOS app that has made its way over to Android.

Yelp Update Introduces New Nearby Page, Puts Stronger Emphasis On Local Goings-On, Adds In-App Delivery/Pickup Ordering [Updated]

What do you do when you arrive in a new city and want to know what to do? I'm sure there are plenty of possible answers, but the correct one is to fire up Yelp. In the US, it's just hard to find a competing platform that offers the sheer depth and functionality that the service offers. Yelp displays discounts, allows user to make reservations, has Open Table integration, and - my personal favorite - gives quick access to addresses.

Self-Checkout Service 'QThru' Comes To Android As The Company Gears Up For Its U.S. Rollout

Have you heard of QThru? If not, welcome to the club - before tonight, I didn't even know it existed. Basically, it's a cool take on self-checkouts at brick-and-mortar stores. The idea is simple: carry your phone around, scanning barcodes of the stuff you intend on buying. Once you're finished, head over to the QThru kiosk and use it to scan the QR on your phone, essentially closing the transaction. All of your credit card info is stored within the QThru app on your device, so once you've scanned the QR, you're done.
