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

Issue with volume control when timekeeping

Great app but had a major issue today when timekeeping. There’s a little ding noise for each press of the timer and midway through timekeeping today I decided to increase the volume. This caused a rapid scroll through numbers and recorded 20 extra times!!
Luckily my oppo was on track but my timings were wrecked

Easy to use

Was easy to use and worked well. Would have been perfect if only the position barcode tokens weren’t so scratched and could not be scanned. Suggestion: if the barcode won’t scan, could it be possible to type in the barcode number, ie the position number please?
