Scanner KeyboardScan Barcodes, Text (OCR) and NFC Tags into Any App

This soft-keyboard for Android is a real time-saver! Besides manual typing, this keyboard scans barcodes, texts (OCR) and NFC tags directly into any app. The integrated scanners are invoked with a single tap, the scanned data appears immediately in the target app as manually typed by the user. This works perfectly without modifying existing apps; app-switching or copy/paste is no longer required.

NEW: Ability to customize the scanned data to the needs of the target app

Scan Barcodes, Text and NFC Tags with your Android Smartphone or Tablet

Barcode / QR Code® Scanner

Choose between two integrated barcode scanner engines: The Traditional Barcode Scanner, known from previous versions, is ideal for older phone models, the newly introduced Advanced Barcode Scanner provides additional features.

Selective Scanning

With the Advanced Barcode Scanner, you scan the barcode of interest by simply tapping on it. This is a very valuable feature if multiple barcodes are visible in the scan view.

Text Recognition (OCR)

The integrated Text Scanner converts camera images to text within seconds and makes typewriting obsolete. Latin-based text in pictures of arbitrary documents is detected automatically and inserted into the target app.

NFC Tag Reading

In addition to the barcode and text scanner, the keyboard offers an integrated NFC Reader for ISO 15693 (NfcV), NfcA, NfcF, IsoDep and NDEF tags.

Easy to Use

Enhancing Productivity

Batch Processing / Autoscan
