Sainsbury's will soon be launching a trial of a grocery shopping app that could save you from having to wait around in line ever again. The app has several neat features, such as tools to help consumers better navigate the store, and most impressively, scan items at the shelf and pay for them with their mobile devices, rather than having to wait to be checked out by a cashier. In testing, the app has proved successful at cutting down the time it takes to go shopping for groceries.

Although there are self-serve checkouts that have been introduced to some stores, this app means that you wouldn't have to make an extra stop at the cash register on your way out of the store.
