You may have recently received a push notification which said that we will be ending support for the “FooEvents Check-ins” app and removing it from the App Store on 26 March 2019.
Well, please don’t be alarmed because this is not bad news. You see, there are currently two different versions of the FooEvents app in the App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android). One is called “FooEvents Check-ins” and the other is simply called “Event Check-ins” (both of them are free). The “Event Check-ins” app was formerly our pro version which used to be a paid app until we made it free as an extra benefit for FooEvents customers. It has more advanced features than the old FooEvents Check-ins app so we’ve made the decision to only support the “Event Check-ins” app going forward.
Migrating to the “Event Check-ins” app is very straightforward, and since it uses the same interface, there’s no additional learning curve involved. All you need to do is download the “Event Check-ins” app for either the App Store or Google Play and connect your website to that app instead. In addition to all the same features that you will find in the old “FooEvents Check-ins” app, you can also upload your own logo and change the app color scheme to match your brand. There’s also an “auto check-in” feature which makes scanning ticket barcodes much simpler and faster.
You can find the download links to the app on the FooEvents Apps page or search for “Event Check-ins” in the App Store and Google Play.
