Hand holding a Yoto card against a smartphone to scan the contents and play the audio
Scan a card. On your phone!

Scan a card. On your phone!

So you’ve got a Yoto Card, but no Yoto Player to listen to it?

Never fear - there is another way - Card Tap.

It's a bit like magic, really, but without all the secrecy and rabbits!

Most new phones are compatible, but view the list here to check.

Step 1

For the best experience, plus access to more free content, first download the Yoto App.

Download it from the Apple App Store (iOS)

Download it from the Google Play Store (Android)

Step 2a

If you have an iPhone XS or newer, or a compatible Android phone …

... simply hold the Yoto Card against your phone, and then follow the instructions on screen. You don’t need the Yoto app open for this to work.



Step 2b

If you have an iPhone 7, 8 or X, there’s a trick to make this work.

Open the Yoto App.

At the top right of the first screen, you’ll see ‘Scan a Card’.

Tap the link and follow the instructions. 


Yoto App Landing Screen (menu)

If you have opened the Yoto App previously and want to scan a card:

1. Tap on ‘My Library’ in the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. 

2. Then tap on the title bar at the top of the screen (the white bit, not the arrows)

3. Tap the ‘Scan a Card’ option at the bottom of the list and follow the instructions
