Koha Offline Scanner available on iPhone

By Thomas Lehmann

Use your iPhone as a Koha Offline Scanner while your Koha system is offline, or if you want to do an offline circulation for any other reason. The iPhone uses its camera as a scanner, it can scan the barcodes on patron’s cards and on your books. The iPhone is power independent for at least a few hours, so you can do your circulation during a power outage. Save the scanned details (check-ins and check-outs) on your iPhone, and upload them later into your Koha system with Koha’s standard function. Just download the app KohaOS from the Apple app store and try it.
