Any issues?

We (MXTreality) made the app based on the wisdom and requirements of Stop & Shop, and so it's probably best to direct most correspondence through them. 


However, there are some issues that we can help you with, so if you didn't get the response you needed above, we'd love to help.


We're hearing reports on some devices of odd things like not scanning properly (sometimes at all), as well as odd camera issues and text alignment.

In these cases, it is likely you fall into one of these three categories:


1) RESOURCES - AR uses a lot of your devices resources (memory and power), and it's possible you have an other app or process open that is hindering it's ability to perform optimally.  Please try closing all apps, rebooting the phone, ensure it has more than 50% battery and trying again.

2) AR COMPATIBILITY - AR doesn't work on all phones and yours  may not be compatible... we wish we could help more here and are looking into alternative approaches.  To verify if you phone can comfortably handle AR, please check the list of compatible devices below
