Barcode Scanner for Android v1.3 Now Available
Big Update for codeREADr’s barcode scanner for Android:
Another big update has come for users of the codeREADr barcode scanner for Android. Check it out on its Google Play page. This update is all about new features. Here are some of the big things we’ve added for this version:
- Bluetooth Support
- NFC Support
- Validation Pattern Support
- Case-Sensitivity Validation
- New UI Improvement
- Webify the Response
- Bluetooth Support: You can connect bluetooth devices that scan barcodes to the phone. Click on the settings tab to pair any supported bluetooth scanner to work with the codeREADr barcode scanner for Android. Pairing smartphones with a Bluetooth scanner means easier scanning and validation of 1D Barcodes that are hard to scan using only the smartphone’s camera.
- NFC Support: codeREADr authenticates NFC IDs embedded in tags, wristbands, FOBS and phones. Android devices that support NFC can now interact with NFC chips, already used in some music festivals and Boston’s MBTA system, to read their unique UID code.
- Validation Pattern Support: the ability to assign a pattern to authenticate barcodes not in the database that follow a specific pattern of characters. (More info coming soon)
- Case-Sensitivity Validation: Databases on your account can now be case-sensitive. Create a case-sensitive database for more security with validation. Leave case sensitivity off if you have a don’t need security, and manual entry while switching cases is hard with your mobile device’s built in keyboard.
- New UI Improvement: Added elegance with a hint of beauty. New buttons, and some classy new backgrounds for the response page, the questions pages, and more.
- Webify the Response: now any response for a barcode, or any description for a service can be written in html or with the nodes. Be as creative as you want using all of the HTML features.
