Garbage - Don't bother with this one, nothing works, you scan a barcode and it wants you to purchase the app, NOT FREE

needs improvements - on the barcodes I tried it (bills to pay on my online bank) it failed to read the barcodes accurately, it missed the last digit from each group of numbers on the barcode. Besides this serious flaw it recognizes the barcode very quickly and also quickly sends the number to the mac (although with errors). So, if you can fix this issue it could be a greatly useful app!
Never Works - This program crashes on my mac running 10.6. It will never open and gives me errors
Won't open on 10.6.8 - Despite the lowest OS req. being 10.6.6, this fails to open on 10.6.8. Disappointed as I havent found another product like this yet. It has great potential.
Has potential, but needs some fixing - Okay, I can use this app at home and it can scan a bar code via the app on my iPhone and paste it into this app on the Mac. So it does what it says. However, a few things: * At work, I cannot get this to connect, and I have no way of getting the iPhone and the Mac to talk to each other. We have a really big wireless network at work with lots of IP addresses, and I have no way to find the Mac within the iPhone app. This is a bummer, because I could really use this app at work when I’m far away from the barcode scanner we have. It would be good to provide me a way to connect the app to the Mac manually. * What would *really* be helpful would be if I could select a running application and say, “When I scan a barcode, send the text string to this app at the position where the cursor is now.” That way, I can put the cursor where I want my barcode to be read into, scan the barcode, and boom—the string is where I need it. No need to copy and paste the string into the app on my own. So it has potential, but it definitely needs some work.
iPhone 4s running iOS 8 - I loaded both the iOS and Mac App. They connected very quickly. I had a hard time getting the camera to focus on the iPhone at first, but i think you have to hit the screen where the red line is NOT on the screen. I almost gave up, but now can get it to scan pretty quick. Now, the barcode text goes into their OSX app’s text box. Now I need to figure out how to get it to go into any text box on the OS X screen.
