Old Version was better

Ok old version was better and I love to use the app for getting the raw text of the PDF417 now you get ID number and it don’t show you the raw text any more i had like using this app before but now I say I only could give them a 2 start bring back the old version with the raw text when you scan if not need to find one that show raw text

Highly recommended

I was looking for an app that is able to read PDF417 barcodes. My HOA is considering scanning drivers licenses for all visitors and rather than looking at the clear text info on the front of the card reading the barcode on the back has more and better information. The developer of this app offers the SDK so that it can be implemented in custom applications. Exactly what I am looking for.
This app is great, the scanner is fast and works even in not so bright light.
The reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars is that when I enable all available barcode formats the scanner doesn’t read the PDF417 anymore

Fast and Efficient

PDF 417 is the best app I have used for scanning barcodes in various lighting conditions and situations. The latest version has evolved into an ever better faster app with a streamlined UI. The previous version had deep linking, so you could call the app and return the results from other apps (i.e., FileMaker Go) but that feature was removed. If that feature was returned to the app, I would’ve given it five stars, because it would be a bigger time saving for me for my needs.
