Description

Display your own web site in the embedded browser and configure the barcode scanner to send it the scanned codes.

Or use pic2shop PRO as an external scanner from another app.

Or copy the barcode to the clipboard for use anywhere.

The embedded web browser supports HTML5, CSS, cookies, javascript, https, etc. You can easily and inexpensively build a rich barcode scanning app for your own use. For example, give your employees access to a product information or an asset tracking app on their iPhone, over the internet or your intranet.

EAN and UPC barcodes can be read even on devices without autofocus.

= CONFIGURATION =

There are seven in-app configuration parameters, and one general setting:

1. Home Page URL: the url of the web page displayed when the app launches (optional).

2. Barcode Lookup URL: the url fetched when a barcode is scanned. The string CODE is replaced by the barcode content, and the string FORMAT is replaced by the symbology of the decoded barcode. That is how the barcode information is transmitted to your web app, and how the response is displayed to the user.

3. Send GPS coordinates: add a "&gps=latitude,longitude" to the lookup URL.

4. Formats: select which formats the scanner needs to look for. We recommend turning off the formats that are not needed for speed.

Please note that you can include as many other parameters as you like in either URL, they will be passed as is to your server. For example, you could give to each user a URL with a different "&userid=NNN" parameter to automatically identify them with the web application.

A quick way to configure pic2shop PRO is to send a link to each user (by email or on a web page). When they click the link after they have installed pic2shop PRO, the three parameters will be set automatically. The link has the form:

p2spro://configure?lookup={lookupURL}&home={homeURL}&formats=EAN13,EAN8,UPCE,ITF,CODE39,CODE128,CODABAR,QR&gps={YES|NO}&settings={YES|NO}

where any special character in {lookupURL} and {homeURL} is replaced by its % encoding. For example, to make pic2shop PRO lookup the UPC database:

p2spro://configure?lookup=http%3A//www.upcdatabase.com/item/CODE

5. Auto Orientation: scan Code39, Code128, ITF and Codabar in landscape (as they can be wider than UPCs)
6. High Resolution: use high resolution scanning (for large barcodes)
7. Copy to clipboard

In addition, one can switch off the in-app configuration in the general iOS settings list to help lock down the config.

= PIC2SHOP PRO AS EXTERNAL SCANNER =

Pic2shop PRO, can be launched by another app or by a web page to scan a barcode, then pass the result back to the calling app or web page. A popular use is to import barcodes into the Filemaker Go application.

The syntax of the custom URL is the following:

p2spro://scan?formats=EAN13,EAN8,UPCE,ITF,CODE39,CODE128,CODABAR,QR&callback={callbackURL}

The callback URL should be percent-encoded and contain the strings CODE and FORMAT, which will be replaced by the barcode content (or 'CANCELLED') and symbology, respectively.

= START SCANNER FROM IN-APP BROWSER =

The barcode scanner can also be started from the embedded browser with link to a "p2spro://scan" URL like described above, which overrides the lookup URL and barcode formats for a single scan. Javascript callbacks are supported.

= NOTES =

For security reasons, HTTPS will not work with self-signed certificates.

Perfect for delivery tracking apps

Over the years I've used this app for two different projects. Clients love that I can bang out mobile scanning web apps without the time and cost of cross-platform native mobile app development. Pic2Shop pro makes me look like a hero.

The GPS tagging is great. I use it to validate delivery scans against addresses to minimize mistakes.

Only thing is I can't figure out how to enable GPS from custom URLs, but using the built-in scan button in app works fine.

Excellent scanner app!

We have been using this app for years to track parts and inventory in our fabrication shop. Updating our web app from the floor has never been easier. Customer support is also amazing! I reported a bug and it was fixed within a couple days.
