is there a way for a POS SDK App (in modal or full screen) to access/use the iPad Camera or Barcode scanner as a input source?

Hey Fred,

That's not presently something we provide access to for input.

Cheers.

Hello Alex,

Could you please provide an update regarding the matter of allowing a custom embedded app to have access to the iPad Camera or Barcode Scanner ? Is it possible to gain programmatic access to it now ? I have not been able to find any reference in the documentation proving or disproving this matter.

 

Kind regards,

Cris

is there any update to having access to the barcode api, I would like to create an app that allows users to use barcode readers other than the ridiculously priced socket scanners.

Using App Bridge, you can trigger barcode scanning in POS and Shopify Mobile using the Scanner Action
