Add Barcode Scanning to Your Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod with Socket

Posted October 25, 2012

Smartphones and tablets have become commonplace in all business types. They offer advanced computing and wireless connectivity on the go whenever and wherever its needed. While they offer a lot of functionality to the average consumer, these devices can also be used in more professional settings to manage inventory, conduct sales, or track a customer base. Adding the ability to read barcodes to your iPad or iPhone can quickly turn it into a data collecting tool you can use for  a wide range of applications.

While there are many apps out there that turn the camera on your device into a barcode scanner, most users find that these apps are not able to keep up with consistent and volume of scanning an enterprise application requires. This is where the Socket line of cordless scanners are the perfect solution for any iOS device.

These scanners have been designed with iOS devices in mind and are ready to pair with any iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch to easily add professional grade scanning to any application.  These scanners send data to the iOS device via Bluetooth and send keyboard text data into any app you need to use.

No matter what types of barcodes you need to read, Socket has a scanner to fit the bill.

Socket 7Ci – is a low-cost scanner for 1D barcodes that doesn’t sacrifice performance.  This unit is ideal for a mobile POS, inventory management, and order entry applications.

Socket 7Xi – is the extra durable unit for full 2D and 1D scanning.  These scanners allow you to read any type of barcode and are perfect for tradeshow lead retrieval, asset tracking, and check-in applications.
