Our scanner applications currently only run on Android phones/devices.

Barcode Decoding Basics

When it comes to decoding barcodes, particularly high-density ones found on the South African driver's license card, it's essential to have a GOOD quality image of the barcode. Lighting conditions play a significant role, as the software relies on detecting the edges between the white and black components that make up the barcode. Any smudges, pixelation, or reflections in the image can have a detrimental impact on the detection and decoding process of the barcode. Therefore, ensuring a clear and well-captured image is crucial for accurate barcode decoding.

Determining the Optimal Distance between Barcode and Scanner

Finding the optimal distance between the barcode and the scanner can vary depending on the device and its camera's focus points. It is challenging to provide a specific answer to this question. However, a good approach is to experiment and discover the best focus point for your particular device. Keep in mind that the barcode should fit comfortably within the viewfinder of the scanner to ensure accurate detection and decoding of barcodes. So, adjust the distance accordingly to find the sweet spot for optimal barcode scanning performance with your specific device.

Understanding Device Variability in Barcode Scanning

The discrepancy in barcode scanning performance between your friend's device and yours can be attributed to several factors. In our scanner applications, we utilize the Google Barcode library for processing barcode images captured through the apps. However, it's important to note that not all devices can consistently provide high-quality images (as explained in Barcode Decoding 101) or offer full support for accurate barcode decoding using the Google library.

To enhance your scanning experience, we recommend ensuring that your Google Play services are up-to-date. Google regularly works on expanding device compatibility and improving barcode decoding capabilities, which are rolled out through the service updates. Keeping your Google Play services updated can help ensure that you benefit from the latest advancements and enhancements made by Google to support a wider range of devices.

While we strive to optimize the scanning experience across various devices, the inherent variability in hardware and software configurations can impact barcode detection and reading. We appreciate your understanding and encourage you to regularly update your Google Play services for the best possible scanning performance on your device.

Tested devices

Giving a list of devices that DOES NOT work will be easier as their users contact us and the ones that DO WORK use the scanner and will most probably never read this section BUT if you use our apps to scan and decode barcodes and the device is NOT in the below list please contact us to inform and we will update the list.
