The Blockbuster iPhone App

Is deadly accurate and timely when it comes to determining whether or not a store is specifically in stock or out of stock of an item. If you have an iPhone or iTouch, try it on something that was just rented out 5-10 minutes ago. It's very up to date.

This might not bode well for the douches who insist something is in stock and we have to tell them it's in Defect

The app should include a barcode for the person's account number.

They actually did defectives somewhat correctly. While you have a defective item in your inventory, it shows as checked out until you complete the TR to get rid of it completely.

we have a customer at my store who has all of his store cards stored on his iphone. He pulls the barcode up on his screen & we just scan the screen. It's true! This app already exists.

I wonder if something like that will catch on and then customers will realize that if they change just one of the numbers, there's a good chance they'll be able to rent on someone else's account without a problem.

Another app like that is called WalletZero.

I will have to admit, I thought it was more than slightly awesome, the first time a customer used it in a transaction with me. Almost makes you want to buy an Iphone. Almost.
