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 like Filemaker Go. 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. To be scanned correctly, the other barcode formats need to be large enough to make all the bars or dots visible. THIS IS NOT A SHOPPING APP. WE DO NOT PROVIDE THE HOSTING SERVICE NOR THE WEB APPLICATION. YOUR ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DEVELOPING THE WEB APPLICATION AND HOSTING IT ON YOUR OWN SERVER. = SUPPORTED BARCODE SYMBOLOGIES = EAN-13, ISBN EAN-8 UPC-A UPC-E Code 39 Code 128 Code 93 Interleaved 2 of 5 (ITF) Standard 2 of 5 (Code 25) Codabar (NW-7, USD-4) QR = 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 for scanning applications

    While building a web-based app that required scanning barcodes to log inventory and lookup I thought from the description I could make this app work. Using the demo I was able to adapt it even more easily by using the integrated browser. For anyone looking you can scan right into your existing form which is ideal (you don't have to use the callback URL but can instead populate your data field with JavaScript. The only thing I've found missing so far is the ability to rotate in the integrated browser is not there, so your web app must be built well for portrait which is a tight squeeze for some data sheets. All in all an excellent, well thought out application that enabled me to build a very cool web based tool.

    I needed a way to scan in UPS tracking numbers into a web app. This did exactly what I wanted. From the web app, I click a URL which launches the scanner and then automatically uploads the tracking number into my web app via the web app API. Click, scan, and done.

    I'm starting off a small business that helps other small businesses get on the web. This little app is helping me in a HUGE way! With this app my clients, nor I need to buy expensive tools to help them build up an inventory system. Now they can do it over the air with their iPod touch (newest generation of course) or iPhones. I'm currently developing the web UI that will compliment this great app! Only thing I have to say is those back and forth buttons should be optional! Thank you Vision Smarts!
