Wireless Barcode Scanner

Wireless Barcode Scanner for Android

The app Wireless Barcode Scanner turns your Android device into a professional wireless barcode imager with outstanding communication features. The app is perfectly suited as cost-saving alternative for handheld barcode imagers; it scans and decodes common linear and 2D bar-codes swiftly and reliably.

Connectivity with arbitrary target systems is guaranteed. The scanned barcodes are available via Bluetooth SPP, TCP/IP and WebSockets (a WebSocket utilizes the direct communication between HTML5 web-pages and the barcode scanner app over TCP, additional software is not required for this purpose).

The app is ready for enterprise wide deployment and volume licensing. The configuration can be automatically imported from files, the use of cryptic configuration barcodes is past. The app can be licensed using Google Play, using TEC-IT's activation server (no Google account required) or via license files based on the device-ID.
