New Software Development Kit Helps iOS Developers Easily Embed 1D and 2D Barcode Reading Functionality into Apps for a Variety of Market Applications
Dynamsoft has made available a software development kit (SDK) for Apple® iOS developers to easily integrate barcode scanning into their apps to turn iPhones into enterprise-grade barcode scanning tools. The new SDK supports 1D and 2D barcode reading. Developers can integrate barcode scanning in as little as a few minutes using just a few lines of code. This builds on Dynamsoft’s barcode reader SDKs for desktop and web applications.
Dynamsoft’s Barcode Reader for iOS SDK supports reading single barcodes from images and smartphone cameras. Synchronous and asynchronous barcode decoding are supported. The SDK works with iOS 7, 8 or 9 and iPhone® 4S and above. Valid architectures are armv7/arm64/i386/x86_64. It reads bar codes without a quiet zone and decodes bar codes printed on various surfaces. This includes passports, ID cards, vehicle identification numbers (VIN), boxes, documents, and more. Supported 1D barcode types include Code 39, Code 128, Code 93, Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5, Industrial 2 of 5, EAN-13, EAN-8, UPC-A, and UPC-E. Supported 2D barcodes include QRCode, DATAMATRIX, and PDF417.
“Our new Barcode Reader for iOS SDK provides developers with simple and intuitive APIs to rapidly enable barcode reading in iOS mobile apps,” said Amy Gu, Vice President of Dynamsoft. “It opens up new possibilities to leverage iPhones for enterprise-class barcode applications. We also provide an SDK trial, rich code samples, and support to help anyone get started. The addition of support for iOS extends Dynamsoft’s imaging SDK solutions across the big three platforms that consist of mobile, web and desktop.”
