Phone Camera-Works as Barcode Scanner

I sometimes repair devices on-site for customers. Would be nice if I could scan barcodes with my phone's camera rather than typing UPCs for parts or fixed prices. A USB label scanner with a PC/Mac is fine for the office, but I can't plug a bar code scanner into my iPhone or iPad.

    Seby, does that bluetooth scanner work with a mobile device? does it use a USB port? is it a phone? this is something we are struggling with

    I confirmed with tech that Bluetooth scanners do work with RS. You can find them for about $50. I just ordered one.

    Have you gotten anywhere with this, Jon? we have a USB label scanner that i've used a converter to plug into my iphone. it works everywhere but RS.
