Hi Jackie,

It works find on my iPhone 5.

I'm not too surprised about bar code issues.  That's a bit of a hornet's
nest at the best of times.

Hi Steve

Yes I think there will be something along those lines too, but I'm in, as
it's amazing to just pick up a card and have it read without too much
faffing about.

I do wonder though what iPhone works the best regarding its camera as I
struggle a bit with the barcode recognition.  Mind you, I have no plans to
purchase a phone at a grand!

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown

Hi,

I know Microsoft are big, but I hope they can sustain the business model of
giving it away for free.

I feel there will be a subscription model coming for it.

All the best

Steve

hi jacky could not agree more for us totalls it's very very good indeed.
also, it will put the price of some of the scanning software down i hope. to
think what we used to have to pay years again eh. it's a bit of a fiddle but
well worth the trouble to get access to material we have never had before.
even reading whats on tins and can's is such a help. again brilliant.
