I am using a barcode scanner as an example to make everything more simple.
Let's say I have a barcode scanner that connects to a computer through USB, and that barcode scan needs software on the computer to display its readings.
Let's say I wanted to make that barcode scanner work on an iPad. I want to get a IOS programmer write a similar program for the iPad as program that the barcode scanner uses on the computer.
When it comes to replicating the software, and barcode scanner recognition on the iPad..... Does it make it easier for a programmer to rewrite software or drivers from Mac OS based code or Windows code?
I would assume it would be easier building iOS software based off Mac OS than windows.
