Finally, an app that shows the GS character!

After searching for quite a while, I finally found it. An iOS app I can use to help debug GS1 barcodes! Not only does it show that all-important GS character, but it even parses the various GS1 segments for me so I don't have to do it in my head. Thank you for putting in the work on this, Toni! Definitely worth my $2 👍

Showing control characters.

When your APP Description said you showed group separators I was hoping it would show all the control characters inside the 2D barcodes. Besides the Group Separator (GS) hex1D; there are also commonly Record Separators (RS) hex 1E; and also End of Text (EOT) hex04.
It would be so much more useful to see all the Control Characters.
To be fair - your showing 1 of the 3 common control characters puts you ahead of the pack of other APPs.
