IAI Scanner 1.7.2 supports devices which do not have function keys and use an external application for barcode readers

IAI Scanner 1.7.2 now supports mobile devices, eg. data collectors which do not have physical function keys on a keyboard and which use an external application for barcode readers.

The latest version of IAI Scanner supports devices that do not have physical function keys on a keyboard and have to use an external application (for example ScanEmul) for built-in barcode reader.

Since version 1.7.2 of our application you have the possibility of disabling function keys, so your device with the installed ScanEmul application will work properly. Previously, such devices were not supported by IAI Scanner because ScanEmul application running in the background caused the conflict and did not allow for use of a barcode reader.
