I’m very happy to announce the availability of a simple beta version of the BookScouter Mobile Application. It is available now at http://bookscouter.com. This initial release is a very simple price lookup system with minimal formatting and ‘fancy stuff’ to make it perform well on a mobile device. Please give it a try as you are out and about, and leave feedback in the comments below, or via the contact form. I have been working for the past couple months on rewriting much of the code for the site, and the new mobile application is the first part that will be running on the new code. The new code base will enable development of some new features that I have been planning but were difficult to implement previously. In addition, the new code should perform faster and reduce some of the server load that has been stretching some limits this buyback season.
In the next week or two I’ll also be redoing the main website to be based on this new code. It won’t have many visible changes initially, but I’m excited to get it out there as well.
