A Couple of Pyow! Tips

Tons of you have already downloaded and tried out Pyow! and we’ve been using it here at MailChimp as well. I thought I would share some tips on how to get the most out of Pyow!.

We’ve found that Pyow! works best on the iPhone 4 and 3GS, since both have higher quality cameras than the 4th generation iPod Touch. That said, the iPod Touch works best when scanning printed coupons. We recommend sticking to a coupon size of 4 (the default) or higher so the coupons print at a reasonable size.

Scanning device screens works well on the iPhone 4 and 3GS with mixed results on the iPod Touch. Unfortunately, some modern smart phones have low resolution screens that make coupons difficult to scan.

Regardless of which device you choose, lighting is important. You’ll want decent lighting to make scanning coupons as easier. By decent lighting I mean normal indoor lighting.

You should grab Pyow! for free on the App Store, if you haven’t already done so. More Pyow! news to come. We hope to have an Android version ready for you early next year.
