What's New in Version 2.0
Optimized for iPhone 5
Basics...better than nothing
I can at least walk around from classroom to classroom and check in and out books, yet there is still a lot missing from the app that I wish I had. I would like to have access to more of the features that are online that I can't access in the app. When you check in books it doesn't tell you who they were checked out by or dates or history of the book. I wish I could run a report from the app and just have it on my phone or iPad for quick access. I enjoy being able to check and check out from my phone but it's frustrating when I have to run back to the Media Center to run a report to access more information that I don't have in the app.
Good for basics; needs some improved functionality
As a new user, this does the basics of what I need for on-the-go: check in, check out, patron status, copy status (by barcode scan). Please add functions to "renew" and "hold" items. A lot of times I am asked by students if a book is available when I am walking through the hallway, so it would also be nice to search Copy Status by title and see the status of all the copies in the catalog-- I don't always have the book available to scan and haven't been able to memorize all of the barcodes yet. ;) A link to Quest to see copies available at other sites/ place a request would be a plus, as well.
Almost perfect...but not quite
I LOVE that I can do checkout via my phone while I'm 'on a cart' 3 times a year, vs with my scanner & laptop, but it would be incredibly helpful of there was a scan option on the iPad version as well. It would also be helpful, if, when I type in a student's name and I accidentally misspell it, I was given a list of options like in the online version. Also, I know that this is a newer app, but you really need to be marketing it better...I found it totally by accident and actually screamed with happiness!! It has been incredibly helpful and I know others will appreciate it as well. Keep up the great work follett!
