If you want to know more technical details about the use of the application, you can consult the analysis that we already published on the global use of the application at the following link:
In this case we are going to focus solely on the new personal tag functionality. Personal labels are a set of downloadable and printable labels by the users themselves that can be requested from the application itself.
To request the shipment of labels for personal use, you must access the button located in the lower right corner of the screen with the symbol of a rocket and known as the “quick start menu”.
At this point you access a form in which you must indicate a name and an email account in which you will immediately receive a pack of printable labels in pdf format. The label pack consists of several sheets: 1 full page label, 1 page of 4 labels, 2 pages of 16 labels, 1 page of 35 labels and a last one of 64 labels.
Once we receive these labels we can print them in color and cut out the ones we consider necessary. The labels can be glued on the objects that we want to identify. Another very successful option that we have tried is to superimpose them with tape or plastic lining to the desired objects.
Once the objects with the different labels have been identified, we proceed to put identifying names to each of them. For this step, you must focus with the phone's camera until the new label is identified and then double-tap on the screen to open its editing menu. This option is enabled in the penultimate icon at the bottom that is identified with a pen and with the identifier “personal annotation”.
In this section, an identification is entered for said label, for example 'coffee', which will be read from now on each time said label is identified with the camera.
As this new update is directly focused on the end user, we are going to include all the comments regarding its use in the social assessment section that we have made together with our volunteer Andrés.
