  1. Looks cool. Doesn’t really say clearly though whether or not you can have multiple apps/devices checking people in at the same event. It looks like a screen capture shows a data column for multiple entrances though. Would want to be sure you’re not stuck having to have just one person’s phone checking everybody in though before purchasing unless only planning small events.
