New phone app lets you scan and go at Wal-mart
Technology is constantly making our lives just a little bit easier. Wal-Mart is introducing a new iPhone app that allows you to check out while you shop.
You download the Wal-mart app, scan items on your phone. You can even bag them right there in your cart. Then go to the self-check out and pay.
But, there's a few items you can't scan as you go.
"If you have produce items or ad match item or comp item, those would come up separately. You would not scan those into your iPhone app because it's weighable or price adjusted. Then you ring them up the normal way, put them on the scale and register that way," said Wal-Mart Co-Manager Darin Buescher.
The Hastings Wal-Mart is part of the original test market.
The app is only for iPhone right now, but the Android version is expected in the next couple months.
