Old Wallet

Lemon is a new mobile phone app that is designed to capture images of the credit, loyalty and membership cards in your wallet so that you can empty the thing out and leave them safely at home.

Cofounder Wences Casares tells Fast Company that the app is useful in a number of situations—including, say, while lying in bed and finding that you need to tap in a credit card number to perform an online purchase. But Casares noted that “once you have all this information in your phone, you find yourself reaching out for it even when you’ve not lost your wallet.” This could be the case, for instance, the next time you need to have your health insurance number at your doctor’s office.
