Easily the greatest barcode scanning app on iOS

This app can recognize pretty much every major type of barcode out there. Recognition and processing happens almost instantly — it's incredibly fast. There are a whole bunch of settings available for fine-tuning what barcode formats it recognizes, capture settings, etc etc. The UI is a little basic at times, but it's still extremely functional. As if the app being totally free with no hidden in-app purchases wasn't enough, there are also no advertisements outside of some fairly unobtrusive promotions of the company's products (which is more than reasonable).

Fantastic barcode scanner, from the OCR / imaging experts

For years I had been looking for a decent DMC scanner and downloaded probably a half dozen, none of which really worked well for everything. I stumbled across this app (when it was still called Manatee) about two years ago. Since then, I’ve used it for barcodes and data matrix codes alike, down to a size of around a ballpoint pen tip. I don’t usually rave about apps, but this is the only review I’ve ever written for one — I’ve been that impressed.

For those looking for something simple that reads everything, this is the app.

(For those not totally happy with the app — there are some settings that might need to be adjusted. I had to enable multi-angle reading, for instance, and also changed the time before trying another focus.)

(I am in no way supported by, affiliated with, or requested from Cognex to write this review — it’s been a long time coming and I wanted to share my opinion.)

Great app! One of a kind!

I needed an app to confirm proper gs1 encoding in barcodes and this is the only app I’ve found that does it. Works great for all other basic scanning functionality as well. Thanks cognex!
Please add feature for barcode grading as well
