Versatile and effective

This is a fantastic app for low cost operations. I have tested on IPhone 4s and 1st Gen IPad. We were looking for an app that not only captures barcodes but allows saving in bulk to enable a subsequent import into an existing DB. This does everything we want and offers the chance to capture additional info and should do away with clipboard and pen.
The app is configurable and enables the user to add additional variable data to the fixed data contained within the barcode. I have tested on simple and 2d barcodes with equal success. My advice is to experiment and configure to meet your needs. The csv file offers a really easy way to update your DB and find variances for investigation.
I have given this 4 stars only because the barcode capture on the IPad is erratic. If using a phone - 5 stars
Update Feb 18. The developer has responded to the IPad issue and it works with a variety of barcodes using my old IPad - so now 5 stars. Great job

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the great review! The latest release should have resolved the iPad issue; if not please let us know

A great scanner App

Great App but need an option to share barcodes via WhatsApp or any other App, not just Email. Otherwise a nice App. Thanks John but still doesn’t have the Open as CSV file option. After pressing Export, it goes straight to email. It’s a great App. After changing few settings options, now I get the options after pressing the export button.

Thank you! We just released an update to allow sharing via AirDrop, SMS etc. Tap Export > Open as CSV file > Share icon

Great bit of kit

It’s a solid app.
Does exactly what I’m looking for. Wished the paid features are a bit cheaper so I could play and see if they are useful.
We run a shop with a warehouse. Simply using this to create lists of products for our warehouse to store or to print price labels etc.
