Nifty little hack. I just found this and thought some of you might find it helpful. I'm going to try this out with my grocery store cards to start and see how it goes.

WalletCards on my iPhone

I'm mostly impressed that the barcodes seem to scan without trouble.

What a great, but simple idea!

I don't know, it's quicker and easier to find the little thingy on my keychain (who carries the credit-card-sized thing around, anyway) than navigating through my iPhone. But it's another great excuse to show off your iPhone and make people hate your hipster guts ...

Interesting concept. I might try it with my phone just for giggles.

Hey, every little bit of hate helps.

Personally, I'd love to get rid of those stupid things on my keyring. I already have an office key, three house keys, two car keys, gas cap keys, USB drive, and mini-knife. For some reason, those silly stiff laminated cardboard tabs cause the most problems for the whole mess laying flat in my pocket. Go figure.

Of course, it might be a bit problematic to take my (at this point hypothetical) iPhone on the climbing wall with me, so maybe the climbing gym membership scanfob will have to stay on the ring.

My other brain is hung like a horse too.

Your wallet will definitely get slimmer when you buy an iPhone.
