Previously I mentioned a nice set of source code examples demonstrating how to use many of the new APIs added with iOS 7 SDK.

Here’s an example from Jake Widmer example that demonstrates use of the iOS 7 Barcode Scanner API in iOS 7.

The example shows how to scan for barcodes, how identify different bar codes provides a settings menu allowing the user to choose which types of barcode to recognize, and present an alert when a specified type of barcode is found.  The app also tracks how many times a specific barcode was found.

You can also use the barcode scanning files in the example and use them to easily set up your own barcode recognizer.

Here’s an image showing barcode scanner in action:

You can find iOS 7 Barcode Scanner on Github here.

A nice example for those looking to use the barcode scanning API in iOS 7.
