Tips and Tricks for 
Operating the Scanner (Closing Apps and Re-enabling the iOS keyboard)

In order to instruct the scanner to close the current app scan the following barcode:
Result: app will close.



In order to instruct the scanner to re-enable the virtual iOS keyboard scan the following barcode:

Scan the above once: virtual keyboard will pop up, enabling manual entry.
Scan the above again: virtual keyboard will disappear, and so on (acts as a toggle function).
 
It is also possible to toggle the virtual keyboard on-and-off by simply pressing the trigger button 3 times within the same second (just like triple-click quickly the button on a computer mouse).  This is by far the most popular method. Just keep in mind to not aim at barcodes while doing this so as not to pick up unwanted data. In the event the "re-enable virtual keyboard by barcode" method is preferred over the triple-click method the barcode can be printed on a small sticker conveniently placed right on top of the frame of the iPad itself.
