Our application VIN Barcode Scanner(http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vin-barcode-scanner/id497948900?mt=8) can be used from any other application installed on a device to scan, recognize and return VIN code in text form. It works via standard protocol. Each app can call other on-board app with a URL like this:
Here the typical workflow (on Filemaker Go example):
- Filemaker Go launches VIN Barcode Scanner with a URL
- VIN Barcode Scanner captures the parameters passed by the URL
- VIN Barcode Scanner scans a VIN code
- VIN Barcode Scanner places the VIN in a return URL provided as one of the parameters
- VIN Barcode Scanner launches the modified return URL
- Filemaker Go receives a recognized VIN code
