I've started to develop a small inventory app that integrates the scanning of barcodes. Everything works really well and everyone at work was impressed how quickly I could develop a small app as a proof of concept.

 

The barcode we need to scan is pretty small (3mm x 3cm ) and using an iPad air and an iPad 3, the barcode was recognised almost instantly (even I was impressed). But for some reason, on my iPhone 5s, It doesn't!!!! I tried with 2 other barcode scanners app, and it worked instantly, but from filemaker go, it keeps trying to focus, but almost never recognises the barcode. We could give iPads to people doing inventories, but running around with an iPhone or an iPod touch seems more convenient in some situations.

 

Anyone else noticed that kind of behaviour?
