    I've downloaded, will try it 5 times and see how it goes.
    Its not that we have more patience as we grow older, its just that we're too tired to care about all the pointless drama

    Question I have to ask.

    Is this service worth the £500 - £700 you pay for a phone to be able to use it when you can get a debit card and Tesco Clubcard for free?

    All for the sake of not taking out 2 cards with you?

    Double click is faster as the translation is pre-authorised. Not much faster on the 6S I admit as Touch ID is so fast now!

    That double-click step is completely unnecessary. You don't need to unlock the phone or open the Wallet app to use ApplePay.

    As I said, just rest your finger on the TouchID sensor and place the phone near the reader. That's all.

    I can't post links, but just Google "using applepay in stores" to see Apple's own instructions with no mention of any need to double-click or even press the Home button.

    Made a couple of purchases yesterday, very easy. Think I will like the fact that I won't be restricted to the £30 limit imposed by Apple Pay.

    Not really relevant but the £30 limit is on Contactless cards (and imposed by the banks as there is no PIN or signature on contactless), but a retailer can choose to have no limit on Apple Pay as it is authorised by TouchID (thats the "PIN"). So its imposed by the retailer, not Apple.

    Have used this app many times, so simple and easy. Never had a problem with it. Shame it's not yet rolled out across the country.

    Used it again today, getting more impressed the more I use it as I am reluctant to go out without a wallet to the shop ... now I can. Will I be brave enough to leave it behind next day?

    Today I shopped without my purse

    Home Bargains, Marks food hall both paid with Apple Pay and Tesco via their app. I didn't mean to go shopping at all hence didn't have my purse but was happy to know I could with my phone.

    anyone else getting an error message from Payqwiq: 'won't work on a device that has malware or is rooted'? I'm pretty sure my device isn't rooted and two different apps find no malware. But not sure what to do next now

    Could someone who has used this offer with PayQwiq tell me how long it took for their 100 points to be credited? Is a long delay normal.

    Doesnt work with Clubcard Plus accounts
    We were hoping that PayQwik would allow us to ditch our old-fashioned Tesco Clubcard Plus cards, that don't do chip & pin yet and still have to be signed for. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case. You get so far through the registration and then it fails right at the end - the card is detected as a Maestro debit card, which seems reasonable.

    I've been in touch with PayQwik support. They initially said that Clubcard Plus cards would work, but then changed their tune. Last I heard my query was being passed to technical support and it has now gone completely quiet.

    I would have though that this would be a fairly straighforward thing to sort out, and would benefit Tesco as well as their CC+ customers. I'm not giving up hope.................quite yet.
    No reliance should be placed on the above.

    It doesn't support Android Cyanogen mobiles... a point they could have made clear before I entered all my details!

    Waitrose have had an app like this for a while... I used the Waitrose one once... It was slow, glitchy, and just a waste of time.

    I currently use the handheld scanners at Tesco. LOVE them. Always work well and so much faster to get round the store.
    Because it's fun to have money!
