A blog post from Tesco provides some clues to how the company is making it all work.
Tesco has data about where different grocery products are located in its UK branches, which is used for its Tesco Finder app.

Interestingly, the non-public pilot app is only available on Android devices because, “Only Android easily offers the ability to install apps from ‘unknown sources’.” It’s a good example of a large organisation opting to use Android’s open platform for research and development innovations over, for example, Apple’s locked down approach.

The firm gets aisle and shelf location spatial data from software that creates planograms and draws aisles on the screen via the Finder app.

In order to keep up with the latest trends in the industry, Tesco announced its own mobile payment service called PayQwiq back in March of 2016. The retailer first tested out the service in around 50 stores located in Edinburgh and London and has expanded it to 500 stores later on.

It looks like the trial was successfully completed, as Tesco has announced that you can now use PayQwiq in every single one of its stores across the UK. The payment service is quite simple to use. Just download the PayQwiq app, add your debit or credit card, and pay for your purchase with the help of your smartphone.

According to Tesco, the service supports all Visa, Mastercard, Amex, and Maestro payment cards. It collects Clubcard points automatically when you make a purchase, which you are then able to see within the app, along with your transactions. The app is secured by a PIN code — four digits — and card details are never stored on your device.

One of the best budget Android tablets to date, Tesco has done the unthinkable and stopped selling its Hudl 2. It's still a great deal if you can find one, though. Here's our Hudl 2 review.

Update 24 November: Although Tesco has discontinued the Hudl 2, it's miraculously back in stock a day before Black Friday . If you're quick you might be able to grab one for just £69 in one of the two colours available.

There's a lot of competition to make the best cheap tablet and Tesco is one of the more successful non-tech brands to make a budget Android tablet in the  Hudl 2 . See :  The best budget tablets 2015.
