About this app

Use this innovative soft-keyboard to scan barcodes, QR codes, text (OCR) and NFC tags into any app. Invoke the integrated scanners with a single tap, the scanned data appears immediately in the target app like manually typed on the keyboard. This works perfectly with almost any target app without modifications.

This keyboard is a convenient time saver! It reduces typing efforts and avoids typing errors. Tedious copy/paste is not required anymore; barcodes and QR codes, texts and NFC tags are scanned without app switching. The keyboard layout resembles the layout of the Android standard keyboard - you will immediately be familiar with it.

This Scanner Keyboard is very flexible, ready for volume licensing, optimized for bulk deployment and can be configured to meet virtually all requirements. It meets demands of commercial, industrial, logistics and supply chain applications.

Choose between two integrated camera barcode scanners. The traditional barcode scanner is ideal for older phone models, the recently introduced advanced barcode scanner provides selective barcode scanning - a very valuable feature if multiple barcodes are visible in the scan view.

The integrated text scanner (OCR), converts camera images to text within seconds. Latin-based text in pictures of arbitrary documents is detected automatically and inserted into the target app.

◾ Keyboard with modern layout, voice recognition, spelling suggestions and multi-language support
◾ Two camera barcode scanner engines to choose from
◾ Selective barcode scanning (tap on barcode of interest)
◾ OCR text scanner converts images to Latin-based text

Scanner Keyboard is available for Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and higher. The advanced barcode scanner and the OCR text scanner are supported from Android 5.0 (Lollipop) onward and requires installed Google Play services. The keyboard supports common input languages and keyboard layouts, the keyboard layout automatically matches the system settings of your Android device.

For users with volume license requirements, TEC-IT offers a bulk-license version of the app (no Google account required). Customized or OEM versions (e.g. with seamless integration of hardware scanners) are available on request. Please contact

The free trial displays a demo hint in irregular intervals. Please upgrade (in-app purchase) to the unlimited version to remove this limitation.

We're interested in buying multiple licenses but are having issues with the keyboard output not working on some devices when scanning NFC. On some devices, it works flawlessly; on others it will only output a random number of characters, or not at all if using the "all at once" behaviour. An okay app — but help with these issues would make it a great one.

Can you please get in touch with We would like to investigate. Please provide details like Android versions, phone models, NFC technology - and if possible screen shots showing the random characters mentioned by you.

[[EDIT: Thanks for replying. I did as you suggested, and I also read the manual. It is amazing what this application can do!! 6 stars.]] It works really well. It would be even better if there were two additional features: 1) an option to set a default action, e.g. Scan Barcode. 2) an option to add a character at the end of the scan, e.g. return or tab. These two features will speed things up when entering bar codes into an application. I hope you will consider them for a future release.

Hi! 1) Enable "Autoscan" (see Settings - Preferences, enable Automatic scans. Then go to Keyboard behaviour, edit the rule for the required target app, enable auto-scan for this rule and select the trigger pattern) 2) in the rule you may also adjust prefixes/suffixes (including control characters) Send mail to for help Thanks

Pretty good initial results on Data Matrix. I like the idea of not showing the virtual keyboard unless activated; just scan and fill the textbox in focus. Optionally divert output from textbox to Bluetooth, then phone becomes a scanner for apps on another Android device (tablet). Helpful if the tablet is too big to get into barcode location (on back of equipment).
