Depends if you want another app accessing your internet habits and the resulting advertising.
A card is fine - just put. photo on it.

Too the many who have been brought up with technology, it could be the natural thing.

The other side - technology for technology's sake

Can be easily blocked.

I'll still use the card, but if it's forgotten, I'll use the app.

Maybe - but when I looked at the Swans App when it was first launched there seemed to be a greater level of intrusion than on similar.

Introducing IT systems, training and online safety had been a significant part of my working life since the early 80s!

The ability to access the internet at any time around kick off anywhere around the ground would be an issue, if WiFi was available to all then at least you could guarantee opening the app!

My 4G signal seems to disappear as the crowds grow.

Nothing to see here.

If you have it on the app will you be able to let someone use your ticket without them having your phone?

Yes

Season cards will also remain fully operational going forward as an additional option and fans are encouraged to bring their card for the next game against Norwich City on November 24 as a back-up option while we continue to test the new in-app functionality.

The times I’ve got no charge, I reckon I’ll be sticking to the card.

I posted a while back about the lack of 4G ON O2 IN the liberty.

Someone posted about switching the phone to 3G only and when I do that it works fine with good coverage. Thanks for that, that was very helpful..

Must admit though this App business baffles me. I have a smart phone and account but my wife, also an ST holder doesn't.

Will still be using my card I think ☺

Just seems a prefect idea if you forgot your season ticket for some reason so can still get in.

For me.. I am always the type of person who likes to carry as little as possible.

In South Korea, I use my phone to pay for most things... as I have attached a digital version of my card on my phone. all wireless over here. so I can pay for everything with the phone and can use it to get on buses and subways here.

I know.. but really at a basic level compared to countries over here. It really shows when people talk about an app that can do this... over here it's almost a talking point if the company doesn't have a digitalized version of tickets etc.

I feel generally in the U.K... most cities and companies are very behind in terms in technology.... but it's no good having an app that can do this... when there is no coverage in the place where you need to use it.

stuff like this should be basic.. but Wales and the U.K in general need to catch up.

By a digitised version of your card, I thought you meant Apple Pay or the Android equivalent, both of which work everywhere apart from B&Q. If you have something else, fair enough, though I can’t see what else it would need to do?

B and Q haven't caught onto contactless yet

Besides that,
what happens when your phone has a broken screen and the barcode reader can't scan it at 5 to 3?

If you wake up breathing, thats a good start to your day and you'll make many thousands of people envious.

Couldn’t you just take a photo of your card? Same result. Serious question.

Well if something like that happens here...there is usually a code not attached to the barcode... they type it in and boom works the same as a barcode.

But obviously if your screen was already broken before... why would you risk it. obviously if the phone is broken then you can go back to regular... if the screen brakes then just have them type in the number one time... obviously if the app has that feature.

Can't beat the old season ticket book mun, when you ripped out a ticket and handed it over at the turnstile. Who says nostalgia is a thing of the past?

Except it would often go wrong when a game was postponed and on the next game people turned up with the wrong number ticket - ripped out at home so they would not lose the book.

Turning up at 5 to 3 with a phone not fit for scanning isn’t much different to turning up at 5 to 3 without your season ticket.
