Stanton’s E-Tools: The Stanton’s App 08 August, 2014
The amazing staff at Stanton’s knows how valuable your time is. That’s why we try to provide you with as many tools as we can to make choosing music easier, faster and more enjoyable. In this series of blog posts, we will be profiling our E-tools. Whether you are a local customer here in Columbus, OH or one of our many friends around the world, we hope you will find a way to use our E-tools!
Stanton’s has an app?
That’s right, just like everyone else these days, Stanton’s Sheet Music has an app. It’s called the Stanton’s Bar Code Scanner, and it is available for both Android and iPhone. Even better, it’s free!
What does the app do?
Our simple-to-use app is just what it sounds like. It helps you to use your phone or tablet’s camera to scan bar codes on music. Once you scan, you are taken automatically to the item’s page in our Listening Library. Within seconds, you can be listening to the sample recording of the piece that you are holding in your hand! If there is no sample recording of the piece provided by the publisher, you will still be guided to that item’s entry on our website where you will find a description, price, catalog number and other useful information.
How can I make the app work for me?
- When you are shopping for music in our store, bring your headphones! As you pull music off the shelf you can scan and listen immediately.
- Going through your own music library? Scan the titles you already own to refresh your memory or see if the item is still available to order.
- When you send your students or church choir members home with a folder full of new music, have them download the app as well. They can listen, look, and have a valuable listening example at their fingertips!
