How To Install HanDBase on an iPhone or iPad

HanDBase is a third-party application that allows for easy creation of custom forms, which can then be populated automatically with Tokenworks IDWedgeBT. The basic HanDBase application is free, but a paid upgrade (currently $6.00) allows for fully customizable forms that look and operate like native iOS apps. This can be a quick and easy way to create custom applications that receive input from ID cards automatically.

Here is a video of the HanDBase app working with IDWedgeBT:

HanDBase Database Files required:

  1. HandBase database (download .PDF file)

Download these two files and email them to yourself. Open the email on your iPhone or iPad. Click on the files in the email to import the files into HanDBase.

Installation Instructions
