About this app

Orca Scan is no ordinary Barcode Scanning app; it was purposely designed to bring an end to manual stocktaking, inventory and asset tracking by replacing the need for pen, paper or an expensive hardware scanner, with an app. Just download the app and add/edit the fields you need to build your barcode solution.

Scan any barcode (QR, UPC, EAN and more); add a name, quantity, description etc. Once done, export via email as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, CSV, XML or JSON file, to be imported into your database or edited on your desktop.

Key Features:

* Scan all major barcodes including QR, UPC, EAN, Aztec (see below)
* Continuous/batch scan mode, removing the need to tap for each scan
* Manually add items
* Add a name, quantity ​and description to each scan
* Add additional fields including text, number, date, time, email and GPS location
* Scan a barcode value directly into a field
* Re-order fields
* Automatic duplicate detecting and merging
* Export barcodes as Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet (.xlsx)
* Export barcodes in CSV, HTML, JSON or XML format
* Export barcodes via SMS, Email, AirDrop
* Open export file on device in .xlsx, .csv, .html, .json or .xml format
* Reset quantities allowing barcode data reuse
* Set PIN lock to restrict access to settings
* Create user accounts, allowing multiple users to share the same device
* Autofocus with optional tap to focus

Fantastic for inventory management at my job. The export and cloud feature makes it great for maintaining my own master spreadsheets. However, the recent update to the scanning engine, while improving speed, appears to have partially broken scanning of data matrix barcodes. The app now fails to scan any 2D data matrix below a certain physical size, where in the previous version they scanned without issue. This necessitated rolling back to the version prior. Great app otherwise.

Hi Rocky, thank you for the feedback and sorry you're having issues. Please can you send a few photos of the Data Matrix barcodes that are proving difficult to scan so we can investigate? -> hello@orcascan.com.

An absolutely perfect app for the situation that I needed. Was updating a fire alarm panel that uses barcodes for the serial numbers and had to write them all down to map the system. This app made my job a hundred times easier than what it would have been. I tried at least 3 other apps that have the similar set up but we're not as user friendly as this one. The ability to export via email or even upload to Google Drive is very nice. I'd give it an 9.5 out of 10, certainly user friendly, very useful, and no deceptive ads. A few things I'd like to see for settings but all around a great app. My favorite part, which also kept me in check, was the fact that if I happened to come across a device that I already did it registered that and added another to that so I was able to see I did it. Certainly would be good for doing inventory and keeping track of stock. Thanks for the work here, keep it up!

This app contains around 90% of the features that I need. Best one out there. The automatic GPS coordinates is a huge plus. Are there any plans to support pictures as fields? It doesn't have to store the picture in the export, just the picture name. In this way I can attach a picture to the record by automatically open the camera and take a picture when I touch on that field.

Hello. This update introduces $ORCA:VARIABLES, add $GS1:GTIN or similar as a default value to any of your fields to automatically extract data on every scan. More info at orcascan.com/variables
