Would be nice.
A lot of barcode scanners with touch screen also pre installed with android.
We're in up to our necks with iOS features and bugs... already.
And alongside the latest hype about security.
not necessarily an Apple fan boy.
I prefer IOS also. But as long as Apple doesn't make a deal with Symbol/Motorola or Intermec/Honeywell to create an high speed barcodescanner with touchscreen and IOS or to install IOS on a high speed barcode scanner with touchscreen I love to get FileMaker Go on Android.
We have a solution, we work with an high speed BT symbol scanner and attached an iPod to it. It works fine. but when we want the to charge the iPod and scanner we need to attach two cables, so it's a workaround But not very hand.
When we use Webdirect with a Browser installed on an android device, input in a field brings up the onscreen keypad if we want it or not.
Obviously that's an android problem
do you know products from Infinite Peripherals, for example this one https://ipcmobile.com/products/ios-peripherals/linea-pro-5/
Specifically for iPhone/iPod/iPad, they add scanners for example.
Bought it, tried it and right now it's catching dust.
It's nice for use in a store but in a logistics environment with many transacties in an hout the scanning is far tho slow. The beam is also to small.
But tbank you for mentioning it, maybe it's a sollution for somebody else
