Pump data from card reader into webform on Ipad I

I am trying to create an Ipad Kiosk to accept donations automatically. There is a card reader attached to the Ipad (in and enclosure). I need to squirt data read from a credit card swiped in the card reader into a field in the page just as if it had come from the keyboard. The javascript page is displayed in a kind of a web browser called Kiosk Pro.

Maybe there is some kind of little driver app or perhaps I can make my own with the included SDK?

My setup:
Ipad ! running  IOS 5.1
Kiosk Pro 2.5
Spartadata iMag swiper PCI compliant (goes in the power/multi port)
w/ SDK
Webapp on it's own server on the local network(takes donations and communicates with Paypal via API)

OK. Got it to work. Used "Kiosk swiper" app, from Subtledata.
