In your screenshot above it looks like there is barcode scanner functionality but I dont see this in the iOS version that I just downloaded. Is barcode scanning available? 


Also can a bluetooth barcode scanner be connected to iOS?

@megank please offer some clarity on the barcode scanning functionality for iOS

Actually NeedleHaystack is very observant -- the sample image in this post shows that barcode function -- but the actual IOS SQ4Retail does NOT have any trigger to access the iphone's camera to read any barcodes.  I would love that feature as well...and I would also love it if we could use the iphone to do inventory transfers and inventory. 


BTW for those of you who don't already know this -- even though it is not widely acknowledged, SQ is able to read QR barcodes.  It cannot generate them but it can read them.  We love QR codes because it compresses a lot of digits into a very tiny symbol.  We do upwards of 45 digits into .25x.25 or .375x.375 QR code (Alphanumeric).
