Apple Store app updated to support self checkout and personal pickup

As rumored, Apple has updated its Apple Store app to include Personal Pickup, EasyPay in store payment facilities and the ability to track your orders right from the app.

  • Personal Pickup: Buy in the app and choose to pick up your order at any Apple Retail Store. Most in-stock orders are available for pickup within an hour. (U.S. only)
  • EasyPay: Purchase select accessories in store quickly by scanning the barcode and completing your transaction right in the app. (U.S. only, requires iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S)
  • Track your stuff: View the status of current and previous orders from the order status section in the More tab.

There is also added support for Canada and China, although Personal Pickup and EasyPay are U.S. only features. The app is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It is not a universal binary either so you will need to hit the 2x button on the iPad; a very strange decision!

Apple Store app updated to support self checkout and personal pickup

Short cuts are never shorter. It's like turning around and taking another route to try avoiding a train. More trouble than it's worth.

Because your camera sucks...I tried using a 3GS with a barscanner app once and it was a PITA to get it to work...lots of tries to get it to register...so...my bet is that Apple decided that it wasn't good enough.
