The current version is not completely compatible with iOS 8. A new version is in the works.
At its core, CNS Barcode is an app for scanning and generating barcodes. You can use this app for a variety of barcodes including Codabar, Code 3 of 9 (Code 39), Code 3 of 9 Ext. (Code 39+), Code 93, Code 128, Databar-14, Databar-14 Stacked, EAN 2, EAN 5, EAN 13, EAN 14, EAN 128, Interleaved 2 of 5, ISBN (EAN-13), QR Code, UPC A, and UPC E.
The power behind CNS Barcode, though, is not just scanning and generating barcodes. CNS Barcode can be launched from other iOS apps on your device using the cnsbarcode:// URL Scheme. This is a very powerful feature that allows you to add the functionality of scanning and generating barcodes to any app that can launch URLs and in turn be launched by a URL. An example of such an app is FileMaker Go. With a specially designed FileMaker Go database, you could, for example, press a button to launch CNS Barcode, scan a product barcode, and have CNS Barcode launch a URL to run a script in FileMaker Go. The FileMaker Go script could then use the barcode data to add a product to an invoice or locate an item in your product database.
