the author of this app says:
The first REAL barcode scanner for the iPhone that sends Barcodes directly to your Mac using WiFi (WLAN) or directly to other applications like Filemaker Go ar websites with its built-in callback functionality.
iOS 4 and higher
Supported Devices (built-in camera):
(NOT iPod touch 2G/3G/4G)
- using additional hardware and after an In-App-Purchase:
iPod touch 2G/3G
iPod touch 4G (with minor limitations)
The new iPod touch 4G: Caused by the absence of a reasonable autofocus camera iCody may only work with limitations using the built in camera on this device!
The Linea Pro In-App-Purchase is NOT compatible to the iPhone and needs an iPod touch and additional hardware.
Needs Mac OS X 10.6 or higher for full WiFi-functionality.

Finally you are able to benefit of all the advantages of any Mac application or website which uses Barcodes without the need of buying expensive hardware add-ons. Simply call iCody on your iPhone, scan the Barcode and thats it!* The deciphered Barcode is transmitted automatically into the text field of the Mac application or Website the cursor is currently in.* So iCody behaves exactly the same way an expensive hardware barcode scanner does!
And even if you yet want to buy expensive hardware, buying the great Linea Pro (http://www.ipclineapro.com), combined with the In-App-purchasable support of the Linea Pro for iCody, you can transform a highly professional Barcode scanner out of your iPod touch.
The new callback functionality lets iCody interact with other applications and even websites using the icody: URL scheme.
With the built-in camera, the scan area can be cropped to enhance scanning results even if several Barcodes are placed directly together. Using the LED torch you can scan even under badly lightened circumstances.
iCody works also when offline (in case no WiFi connection is established). The deciphered Barcodes are saved in a Barcode list and can be transmitted afterwards. This function is best practice for doing batch recognitions of a big number of Barcodes: Scan all barcodes anywhere and anytime and send them to the Mac whenever you want by reconnecting to this Mac by WiFi.
Or export them via iTunes or send them by eMail - one, some or all ...!
Full iPhone 4 support:

Watch our demo video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSyRpHB0e3w

iCody does NOT contain any connection to shopping portals and does NOTprovide any procing information or product comparisons. iCody is a professional tool which makes a hardware barcode reader obsolete.
iCody needs the autofocus capabilities of the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 and works very limited on the iPod touch 4G. The scanning results on this device can be improved by using an optionally available optical lens (macro lens).
* Needs an established WiFi connection of both iPhone and stationary Mac. Needs the free additional application Thetis running on the Mac which can be downloaded at http://www.appthology.net/. Needs Mac OS X 10.6 or higher.
