NEWARK, Calif. – July 20, 2011 – Socket Mobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCKT), an innovative
provider of mobile productivity solutions, today announced the availability of the
SocketScan 10 Software Development Kit (SDK) for Apple iOS.

The SocketScan 10 SDK for Apple is a highly versatile barcode scanning tool that
enables developers to add commercial-grade rapid and robust barcode scanning
capabilities to their smartphone, tablet, notebook and desktop applications.

“Developers creating applications that incorporate barcode scanning for the Apple iOS
will find that the SocketScan 10 SDK provides an enhanced level of control when it
comes to programming the Socket Bluetooth
Cordless Hand Scanner

(CHS) 7Xi
,” said
Samantha Chu, data collection product manager at Socket Mobile. “In terms of usage
scenarios, this SDK goes beyond Human Interface Device (HID) support and offers
more flexibility on Apple iOS devices than previous versions. The level of software
sophistication and control over how a user interface is created and implemented is
unequaled in the data collection industry for Apple devices.”

“Utilizing the SocketScan 10 SDK for the CHS 7Xi required minimal development effort
and inherently solved all of the limitations associated with a HID based solution—namely
the requirement of having a dedicated text area throughout our user interface to accept
scanned data,” said Jim Duffy, principal and chief software architect at Vorpalware
developers of PlantLog
, a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS)
designed to allow facility operations groups the ability to collect data using mobile

“In just a few hours our developers were able to implement basic barcoding functionality
into the PlantLog software without any unwanted side effects,” said Duffy. “With the rich
set of APIs provided in the SocketScan 10 SDK, we were able to produce a clean and
elegant integration between our iOS-based PlantLog software and the CHS 7Xi that
satisfies the high demands of an enterprise class product.”

SocketScan 10 Developer Program with Optional Compensation
The SocketScan 10 Developer Program
with optional compensation is designed to
reward developers who integrate support for the CHS products into their applications
and recommend the CHS for use with their software. To learn more about the how you
