So I'm researching whether or not I can use the iphone/ipod touch as a possible bar code reader for an app I'm developing that will help my client inventory items marked with bar codes.  Either by using the camera, or by giving somebody a barcode scanner that could somehow interface with my app on the phone (bluetooth?).  Has anybody ever tried something like this.  How much luck did you have?

My main interest is in the phones ability to actually read a bar code or 2d barcodes.
