What's New in Version 1.1
iPhone 4s running iOS 8
I loaded both the iOS and Mac App. They connected very quickly. I had a hard time getting the camera to focus on the iPhone at first, but i think you have to hit the screen where the red line is NOT on the screen. I almost gave up, but now can get it to scan pretty quick. Now, the barcode text goes into their OSX app’s text box. Now I need to figure out how to get it to go into any text box on the OS X screen.
on the barcodes I tried it (bills to pay on my online bank) it failed to read the barcodes accurately, it missed the last digit from each group of numbers on the barcode. Besides this serious flaw it recognizes the barcode very quickly and also quickly sends the number to the mac (although with errors). So, if you can fix this issue it could be a greatly useful app!
Really liked it! Needs minor fixes..
Worked for most of my barcodes, but not all (though one of those was an inkjet print). Another small issue was connecting the Iphone to the Mac app, but restarting both apps fixed it…
Other than that, really worth it! It does work!
