Ratings and Reviews
Fast and accurate
I print barcode labels in industrial applications and I like to use my iPhone to scan the barcode and test. For years I’ve used the Zbar app, but that finally stopped working with ios 11. After downloading about 20 barcode scanning apps that were useless, I finally found Cognex. Incredibly fast and accurate, with a smart way of aiming, when there are multiple barcodes to choose from. Thanks.
IOS 12.3.1 has broken app
Have to reset scan app after each barcode scanned since upgrading IPhone 6S to IOS 12.3.1 App was working brilliantly before IOS update
Best barcode scan app ever seen
