barcode and QR code recognition API's on iPhone and Android?

Since both iPhone and Android (and Windows Mobile 7.5 and 8) has apps
reading barcode and Android, are these apps based on built-in API's or
do we need to make these API's ourselves?

Have a database app (datasnap based) where an Android app with such
readers combined with datasnap communication would be a very interesting
app, where the mobile would scan the purchased goods serial number as
barcode and pass it as a new record in the database to identify the
single new goods.

Try the ZBar libray at ZBar.Sourgeforge.net. It had SDKs for iPhone and Android (http://sourceforge.net/projects/zbar/files/AndroidSDK/) and works pretty wel.

Thx.
I'll try that when having upgraded to XE5 when it has been released.
This topic is probably a main reason why upgrade from XE2

Hi, mariah sharp.
As for me, I am testing the related java barcode reader these days. Do you have any ideas about it? Or any good suggestion? I am totally a green hand on barcode reading field. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

hi there, if you want to learn something how to generate and read barcode, google it you will find a lot of tutorials and guides, even free trial packages.

You said you are a greenhand on barcode reading field,so how can you do your testing?Maybe it's hard for you to do the work,maybe some good barcode and QR code recognition api will make your job easier.

Hello, Alf Christopher...
There's no API on most iphone or android phone to read qr code. So there are many apps on websites for mobile phones.
I have searched the scanner on google and finally find this barcode recognition app. There are barcode trial package for qr code, tutorial and even sample code on it. I have already tested it on my phone, and it works with success.
