      COMM-UNITY NETWORKING SYSTEMS RELEASES AN UPDATE TO CNS BARCODE, A BARCODE SCANNING AND GENERATING APP.

       

      Fort Worth, TX, February 18, 2013 -- Comm-Unity Networking Systems has released an update for CNS Barcode, a Barcode Scanning and Generating App for iOS devices running iOS 5.0 or higher. Version 1.4 adds support for the taller screens found on the iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5th Gen devices, as well as several customer-requested features and bug fixes. CNS Barcode 1.4 is available immediately at http://appstore.com/cnsbarcode  More information can be found at http://www.cnsplug-ins.com/iOS/CNS_Barcode

       

       

      CNS Barcode and FileMaker Go

       

      The power behind CNS Barcode 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.

      What's New

       

      - Added support for 4" displays

      - Updated code to support High Resolution mode on all supported devices

      - Added support for the iOS 6 Photo Privacy Settings

      - Fixed a tap-to-focus bug that caused a crash when using the front-facing camera

      - Fixed issues putting images on the clipboard

      - Added the ability to insert returns in the Barcode Data field on the Generate tab for creating barcodes with multi-line data (eg. VCards)

      - Added the ability to specify returns in the Barcode Data when using a cnsbarcode://generate url (use ::CR:: and/or ::LF::)

      - Added in a preference for disabling the scan beep, both as a global setting or as a per-profile setting

      - Added in code to silence the scan beep if the volume is all the way down (for devices that do not have a mute switch)

      - Added in a preference for the number of seconds to pause between scans to help prevent scanning the same barcode more than once

      - Added in code to detect low memory situations; the app will now disable scanning and prompt you to do something with your scanned barcodes

      - Significantly reduced the memory footprint of the saved scans in multi-scan mode so the device won't run out of memory in the first place

      - Added a new Regenerated Barcode section to the scan detail page for generating a clean version of the barcode that was scanned

      - Added support for all device orientations/rotations

      - Fixed a bug when adding profiles that would sometimes result in duplicate profiles

      - Added in a longer (and user-defined) pause after generating a barcode and before returning to the calling application to help keep fmgo11 from crashing on return on newer/faster devices

      - Added in a profile option to return multiple barcodes in the launch url instead of on the clipboard

      - General bug fixes and code cleanup
