It is very useful especially when you have to fill out the form with your card information while shopping online. The scanning is so simple, just hold your iPhone over your credit card. Needless to say, the expiration date is also to be scanned to automatically fill out the appropriate field.

The fields have been quickly and automatically filled in with your card information.

For your information, only the credit card number and the expiration date will be automatically populated. The card holder's name and the 3-digit security code shown on the back of your credit card have to be manually entered.
