We’re already posting an update to Scanner Go on the app store. The original x-callback-url protocols have changed slightly to make them easier to understand and implement. Look for another update in the future that allows custom actions for scanner results. We’d love to hear what kinds of actions you’d like to see with barcodes. What sites or apps would you like to send scanner results to? Post a comment with your ideas.
We use Filemaker Go a lot on our iPhones. So we were looking for a way to use the iPhone camera as a barcode reader for data entry to Filemaker Go. Enter Scanner Go. By using url requests within FIlemaker Go, you can open Scanner Go, scan a barcode, and send the results directly back to a script in your mobile database. Integrating these url requests is simple to do for any app or website. Check out the protocol here. It’s available on the App Store now.
