The FBAScan App supports two scouting modes: “”Local Database”” and “”Live Search””.
With “”Local Database””, the pricing information is stored in a database inside the phone and information is returned instantly upon scanning. NO Internet connection is required. This allows you to check items in locations with poor signal or no signal at all.
With Internet connection, you can use “”Live Search”” to get real-time pricing information from Amazon. You can check on items that are not found in local database. This App provides quick access to the Amazon product details page for the item you wish to do more research on.
With this FBAScan App, you can easily switch between “”Local Database”” and “”Live Search”” mode. This will allow you to quickly check through hundreds of items with local database, and then selectively do live searches on certain items. You will have a speedy, precise, and comprehensive scouting experience with this App.
