Hi Steven,

There has been a lot of work centered around a native app for either Android or iOS. This is a much more complicated project for the following reasons.

You have to develop an application for each platform you want to deploy on.
You have to program or integrate snippets to interact with the scanning hardware
You may have to go through some process to make your application available in google store, app store, etc.

You also have to consider version of software, the list continues.

Our approach is to develop a linux based server application. Most hardware devices today that come with an integrated scanner already have a browser plugin that can scan without any development. Some devices even come with HTML5 ready browsers. Example is dolphin 7800, Intermec, or some bluetooth scanner for iphone/ipod.

Developing a server app will work on any device that supports HTML5 so this already eliminates a significant amount of work.

We actually already have a prototype. I am thinking about releasing some screens shortly. Will keep you updated.

I know of another developer who is working on an android application for odoo.  What is the scope of your project?

Would you mind sharing your work? We are looking to create an open source community app. Perhaps we could collaborate on such a project.

Also, this is a thread about developing an app, please do not hijack the thread to ask about an different product.

Hello,

We've already developped this. It works over OpenERP v6.1, with a Rails responsive application based on the Akretion work, managing a multistore ecommerce warehouse with 5 Magento stores synchronized with OpenERP.

They are one of the biggest vendors here in Spain of flash sales ecommerces, and these last christmas they get to manage around 1000 sales per day in their warehouses with our application.

The main problem is that our development is heavily tied to their processes, some of them very specific already covered in their custom OpenERP 6.1. But our idea is to build from scratch a new application based on the old one and on the knowledge/experience adquired, so members on board are welcome.

Best regards.

If we wanted to work with proprietary software, or software that will not function unless you pay a fee, especially a monthly fee per person, we would work with standard enterprise licensed software.

This line is the one that make me personally worried about your position.

IMHO the enterprise licence is not a "would" is a "most" but with your last email it is better but not totally.

Again "Freely distributable" is not a mandatory feature, be able to access the Source code is freedom.

Commercial agreements are not against opensource nature, even the contrary, only when everybody understand that if all of the ones that use software most care about the editor itself of the software in a direct way (without rodeos) we will rule the world "enterely", in the middle we just create unecesary frictions between us.

Regards.
