Update: As of 5/4/2020 we now use Code Readr to scan tickets. For more information call or email us.
Hello again everyone! It’s Stephen from Engineering here to tell you about our new update to AttendStar Check-in, the app for your iPhone or iPod Touch that allows you to scan AttendStar tickets right from your phone! As of tonight, version 2.0 is now live in the App Store and ready for you to download. So what’s so great about this update you ask? Well, it’s pretty big news. For the past 1.5 months I’ve been working to bring the power of our fast QR code scanning platform to your event, without needing Internet while scanning tickets! So what does this mean for you? If you don’t have internet access at your event, all you need to do is open up the app at home, at work, or wherever you have internet, sign in, select your event, and viola! You are ready to go. Just tap that home button and head off to the event. Once you get to the event, tap the app icon on your home screen, and the app will open up with a list of all your attendees and their ticket numbers temporarily stored on your device. This way, when you don’t have WiFi (or a good enough 3G connection), the app will automatically validate tickets using the list you downloaded while at home. Pretty neat right? Then, after the event, simply tap the home button again and when you’re back where you have internet, open the app back up, and log out. The app will sync the scans you did while offline with AttendStar’s servers and you are ready to go. So now, with this great update to our FREE iPhone app, it’s even more of a no-brainer to use AttendStar to power your next event.
Well, I’m about out of time. But don’t worry, we’ve got some great new features planned, so stay tuned, there’s another update headed your way soon! In the meantime, go setup your event and start selling tickets today!
