What’s the current status of GSScout? Is it no longer supported? No plans for an upgrade? If so, any suggestions for a GS compatible mobile app?
I’ve been using GSS to save a few steps in uploading photos to listings, but it’s often unreliable and loses them/crashes. I love it when it works, but can be frustrating to have to retake on the 12th photo.
The only problem I have had with it is when importing the listing into GS, it often brings both the photo and a thumbnail of it. I hope it will continue to be supported; it is my first step in creating listings
I was asking because I think this issue only occurs if you select photos in GSScout that were taken from within the camera app (not from inside GSScout).
We’ll try to have a look at this issue but please note GSScout currently does not have highest priority on our to do list.
I was just about to list some music cd’s, figured I’d see what this app does. Maybe I’ve missed something. All it did was import the barcode number, which doesn’t pull any information at all either into the app or when imported into garagesale. It’s literally just the barcode number. I’m not entirely sure what purpose that serves, I would have assumed it would pull the Title of the CD at least. I tried 6 CD’s, all just pulled a barcode number and literally nothing else.
But when you then list it, eBay has the barcode: aren’t the rest of the details filled in from that? Good luck selling CDs, I’ve never managed to get more than $2 for anything other than foreign or OOP .
as you see, no specifics, no titles, nothing at all except the barcode.
using eBay’s own barcode scanner, the first output from the barcode scan gives me this. So actually 2 different outputs to choose from.
I assumed this was the purpose of the app.
If you’re suggesting that additional info is all pulled during the actual act of listing and only visible after the listing has started, that’s pretty useless. For most people it’s the act of typing out Titles for listings that we try to automate, hence barcode scanning.
So yeah, it worked with a random book, just not any CD’s I’m putting through it. Weird.
