  • Do we have a bar code scanner we can use to enter comics quicker?

  • The app has one. It takes a little getting used to. We also have to have the ISBN for it to work.

  • I'm having trouble making this feature work. Is there a tutorial? Am I doing something wrong?

  • There is not a tutorial. It takes some practice to get it to recognize both barcodes. If you see it scans both but it doesn't find anything then that means we do not have that ISBN indexed yet.

  • I can see dots appear but nothing happens after that. I've used common and uncommon books trying to make this work.. What is the lightning bolt in the corner for? Maybe I'm doing something wrong with that.

  • I just found this random comic on the internet, opened my app and the second scan of the UPC the app found it. Make sure you are scanning the UPC only and not the entire cover...

    I don't do anything else.
