If it’s a quickie tip, please post it in the comments section. If you’re tip involves a bit more explanation, please submit a tipster article (our Tipster Submission guidelines are here) so we can share your tutorial with others.
For each tip posted here before April 14th relating to how to use the scanner, we’ll reward you with 5 Piggy Points to spend in the Online Shop (Piggy Points will be awarded in the week after April 14th). All accepted Smartphone Scanner tipster magazine posts submitted in April will receive 10 Piggy Points on publication.
We are particularly interested to find out about other apps which you find useful in making your scans. We currently have a first version of the Lomoscanner App for iPhone available and appreciate any feedback you may have on that after testing it – Please send any bug reports or suggestions to email@example.com so we can improve the app. We will continue to improve the Lomoscanner app based on all your feedback so we can make it as great as possible.
