Under the Settings section, you can edit these Preferences:
Turn this setting on so the phone's display won't sleep for as long as you're using the app.
If you want audio cues to scout without looking at your phone's screen, turn the Audio switch to the "on" position. There are three audio sounds currently available:
- A short bell sound - indicates that your triggers have rejected that book
- A happy ringing sound - indicates that your triggers have accepted that book
- An angry buzzer sound - indicates that the barcode you scanned didn't return any data. It may not be in the database, or perhaps it isn't a book and therefore it was unable to be found on Amazon.
Please be considerate to other scouters and store employees and use headphones if you choose to scout with audio cues. If I happen to run into you at a library sale and you are scanning books without headphones and your phone's volume is on full blast, I reserve the right to terminate your subscription immediately! (mostly kidding...)
As an alternative to (or in addition to) audio cues, you can turn on the Vibrate setting so the phone will vibrate on any Accept notifications. On some phone models, you may have to turn the volume up or a separate vibration setting to make the vibration work properly.
ISBN Searches Only:
Some scouts look for books exclusively, and prefer to use only audio triggers. If they accidentally scan a UPC instead of an ISBN, there is a high probability that the live lookup will bring up multiple results. This can slow down the scouting process. If you are only looking for books, turning on this setting will stop the Multiple Results screen from popping up so you can keep scanning quickly. If you scan a non-book on accident, it'll provide a Reject signal so you know to try scanning the next item.
