Almost a fan, but not quite. It's easy to set up and works well. But UX needs a lot of work (no scan beep by default? seriously?). And there's no way to turn of the "scan session" thing, which I don't need and which makes the app too freaking complicated. Switched to a similar app from XConnected. Which has its own issues, but is still more usable.

Hello, you can make the app automatically open in scan mode by enabling the "Open the app in scan mode" option, as explained here: The beep should be enabled by default, make sure the media volume is turned on 🙂

This app talks smoothly to MX Linux - 19.2, LibreOffice Calc (after 'install' of dependencies for AppImage which took a bit of web-searching). The only change I would prefer would be to advance the field to the right upon successful barcode capture, rather than advancing the field down the page. As a free app, this does exactly what it was supposed to do! Thanks!

Thank you for your feedback! You can do that by changing the Output Template from the server settings: instead of [BARCODE][ENTER] you have to put [BARCODE][➡], where ➡ stands for RIGHT ARROW key. See this:

This app seems promising, and would overall be perfect for what I need it for. My only problem with it is the whole session thing. It it just extremely annoying, and it's an extra step I don't want to have to deal with. I honestly don't see the purpose of it even being included in the app. For that reason, I'll be looking for another solution, possibly just a simple USB barcode scanner.

Hello, actually this feature can be turned off from the app settings. There is also an option to open the app with the camera open. See this: Please reach us out at contact if you need further help 😉
