This video shows how the Grid-In-Hand(tm) Mobile Grid app on the iPad, can be used with the Scanfob GEN2 RFID reader to easily capture UHF RFID tags and email them as an Excel spreadsheet.
The RFID reader is connected to the iPad via the BlueSnap (SPP-HID) Bridge. One side of the bridge is connected to the RFID reader (in Bluetooth SPP mode), the other side of the bridge is connected to the iPad (in Bluetooth HID-keyboard mode).
The BlueSnap Bridge has a rechargeable battery, and is a convenient size so it can fit in most any pocket while in use. It only needs be within 30 feet of the iPad and the RFID reader.
This system is fast, simple, and easy-to-use. Simply turn on the RFID reader and the bridge, and in a few seconds you will have the reader connected to the iPad. To read the tags, hold the reader near the tag, and press the read button, the tag value will be posted to the Mobile Grid, in this case the time of the scan also posted, there are options to collect other data as well. When all the tags are captured, tap the upload option. It's that easy to have a list of GEN2 tags emailed anywhere as an Excel file, CSV file, and even posted to a SQL database.

This solution can post the UHF tag data to ANY iPad application that accepts typed data, such as the Safari Browser, just open the app and scan the tag to the desired location. Also note the bridge allows you to have on-screen keyboard access with the reader connected, just briefly press the bridge button, to display or hide the iPad on-screen keyboard.

The BlueSnap Bridge can connect RFID readers, barcode scanners, mag stripe readers, scales, sensors, laser range finders, and more to the iPad. The device needs a Bluetooth SPP or RS-232 interface that sends regular text & number data (ASCII format), so this solution is incredibly flexible.
