Can't scan your barcode? Or want to use a traditional barcode scanner? No problem.

If our standard scan engine isn’t sufficient for your application, you have (3) options:

1. You can upgrade to our SD PRO scan engine. It  also uses just the built-in camera of iOS and Android devices but it scans 50-barcode symbologies as fast as most industrial mobile computers and purpose-built scanners.

You can try it for free. On the codeREADr app’s sign-in page look for ‘SD PRO – Try It’ and scan your target barcodes. You can further improve performance by optimizing it to read just the barcode types you plan to scan. You can read more about it and see a video here.   

2. You can use a bluetooth accessory, like the Opticon device (~$250) shown in this video

3. You can install the Bluestacks App Player on PCs and Macs, download codeREADr for Android from Google Play and then scan with a low-cost USB scanner, putting the scanned data into the manual entry field of the codeREADr app. Here’s some more info
