Great app but can be better

Hi, I think the app is simple and great. One thing I noticed today was that the volume up was adding extra times in, which I wasn't expecting. I was actually trying to increase the volume so I could hear the beep louder. This caused the results to get messed up. It would be great if we could hold down and delete an accidental time with a confirmation. That would allow us to quickly fix errors as they happen and provide more accurate timings.

IOS 15 issues

I have an iPhone 11 pro and use the volunteer app without a problem. When timekeeping I start the run and then close the iPhone to prevent mistakes. As the runners finish I open the iPhone and open the app and I use the volume button to record the individual times. I have now updated to IOS 15 and today I was unable to use the app in the usual way. The volume button couldn’t be used to record the times, I was only able to use the touchscreen to input the time. Has anyone else experienced the same issue?

Multiple scanning of barcodes

I have an Apple iPhone 7 with iOS 14.5 and when testing the Scanner we found that you could scan a barcode more than once and it would then accept any token not necessarily the one related to that barcode. We tried this a number of times and the same thing happened. Not sure if Junior Parkrun had had this problem. This needs to be fixed before Parkrun in the UK re-starts in June
