    Hi Everyone,
    I’m pretty new with just under 200 hits. I’m at 100% I noticed that there was very little to work on over the last couple days. So I looked at my qualifications, there are pages and pages of exclusions. I do filter for hits I’m qualified for above .25. I get about 25 that I qualified (supposedly) for most I’m not. There are some that I know I haven’t done, I select but am told there are none left yet they stay up for days. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Oh and, I have no idea about scripts and scraping so if possible please simplify.

    First off, you have very few HITs. You won't start seeing lots of stuff until you get to 500, 1000, 5000, 10000 bench mark of approved HITS. B, don't bother with the qualifications page, it's useless and most of what you will eventually see there is exclusion quals from like TurkPrime and stuff. Three, make sure you do your Amazon qual stuff (they are worth 0 cents so you have to go look for them). Lastly, but not really, it sounds like you aren't using most of the tools available to help find work like scrapers... something like HITForker (if it still is up and running) or the HITFinder from MTS should do you well to start with.

    By Amazon qual stuff you mean the premium qualifications right? As for scrapers... I looked for alerts and such but it seems not much is available for iOS, I use my iPad mostly. But I’ll see if I can find those you mentioned. Thank You

    I really have no idea about iOS. Most people use FireFox or Chrome, but you should be able to get Chrome on your iPad and use the scripts... but I'm fuck all for help on tablets and Apple (GOOGLE FOR LIFE!).

    If you are going to try to turk on mobile alone you are honestly going to have a bad time. Honestly the only setup I can set working decently well would be paying for https://turkernator.com/ and the TV API https://turkerview.com/account/api/ and running it on a desktop with your iOS devices just remotely controlling it.

    @Kadauchi would know better if that would be feasible and if the iOS client is out etc.

    btw I'm fairly certain that chrome on iOS has zero extension support so you would be SOL on that. Firefox might have some but most :emoji_poop: won't work anyways.

    No iOS app out yet (I added support for Pushbullet for push notifications because its taking extra time to get this done :emoji_rage:), just the main program on macOS.

    All browsers on iOS are really just reskinned Safari so no Firefox + Tampermonkey like you can on Android. TBH iOS devices are probably going to be the worst thing to MTurk on. An old used $30-50 Android tablet will probably be better than the newest iPad because of the no scripts on iOS.
