AWESOME! Exactly what I've been looking for. I developed a MS Access app for PC and needed an easy way to get bar codes in the database. You could even include keyboard commands during scanning to move the cursor around fields, etc.

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 has a lot of potencial, and for sure will be 5 stars once some improvements are made. I found some problems: 1) I have a good smartphone, and focus is slow. Because the slow focus, scan takes a relatively long time. I would expect this behavior on low end smartphone, but not in a upper end model. Maybe it needs some speed optimization in the algorithm? 2) Many softwares that use the camera have some kind of image stabilization, but this program do not have. To read a small barcode with a MAC address, the shaking is annoying. Yes... Also my fault that cannot hold the cellphone stable! We need image stabilization (or more speed) because combined with slow focus time, not very fast result at all. 3) I had connections issues with server and app. They are paired, but during scan I have "connection problems" message with no aparent reason. Because the app and server are paired, firewall is just ok. Don't get me wrong: A very nice software, well designed. Just need more speed in the processing. Example: In the continuous modem a dialog pops up, and disapear by itself. We don't need a popup at all in this case, only this will screase continuous mode speed...

Hi Celso, most of those issues have been fixed in the new version. To improve the scanning reliability go in the Settings page of the app and select "Limit barcode formats" and keep enabled only the barcode formats that you use. Now the camera stays always open when using the continuous mode thus the focus won't change.

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 😉
