There are different versions of SerialMagic for different needs.
The SerialMagic Product family for Apple OS X provides several alternatives for inputting data into a Mac OS X application without the need for programming. There are options for using the scanner tethered1, roaming2, and options for Wireless devices using Bluetooth. View SerialMagic options in the table below.
SerialMagic Plus or SerialMagic Pro should be used with Readerware and a tethered scanner to roam2 away from the computer to scan barcodes then return to the computer for downloading. SerialMagic Plus and SerialMagic Pro will also work for Flic scanners. Please note that Flicware does not support tethered scanner handshake.
SerialMagic Professional even allows you to run a macro when a barcode is scanned. This allows simple integration of barcode scanning with existing business processes built around Spreadsheets such as Excel.
