Magnetic strip reading

Hi everyone,


We're working on a series of apps which require folks who won't be licensed to access an app (through Kiosk) and perform an action of some kind, then submit. Our issue is there's so much turnover and such it doesn't make sense to license these people.


What we'd like to do is be able to translate data from their employee card (magnetic strip) into the name field within the app to verify who the person is (versus doing freeform text).


Any ideas?

Hi AndrewGeddes 

I do not know about magnetic strip reading but if their ID card contains a barcode representing their name that could work.. however they would need to open the barcode reading camera which might take them as long as writing out their name..

Interesting idea though, curious to hear other's ideas on this too.
