    I am trying to figure out how to make an app that will scan my barcodes for work and transfer them to a form. Can anybody help me with this?

    ipad is not a good option for barcode scanning because it does not have autofocusing.

    Using the program Grocery IQ I have no problems scanning barcodes.

    What about iPhone then?

    I want to scan stickers that have barcodes on them, and then it transfer a form for work.

    Understand, but I was replying to Pballer110 post indicating that it can't be done or doesn't work vey well. I have no idea what App for you to use but there is no hardware limitation preventing barcode reading because it works quite well in GroceryIQ.

    The only 2 cavets I see are the awkward holding/lining up of a "large barcode scanner" and no flash requiring sufficient ambient light.

    Here is a site/search that may have what you are looking for. You'll need to look through.

    The Bar Code Scanners never worked for me...either its on iPhone, HTC or Nokia...they suck...they can't read the bar codes.
