The scanner for both barcodes and QR scanner is really accurate. It "catches" the codes even while it's blurry or not too close. In a few words, this is a great Barcode & QR code scanner with an added-value feature: products features and price comparison among different online and local retailers. Great app.

Developer's original description available here
Build your own barcode-enabled app. Simply configure the URL of your web application, and use pic2shop PRO to scan barcodes, transmit the code to your server, and interact with the results.

The embedded web browser supports HTML5, CSS, cookies, javascript, https, etc. You can easily and inexpensively build a rich barcode scanning app for your own or your company's use. For example, give your employees access to a product information or an asset tracking app on their Android phone, over the internet or your intranet.

Before you buy, you can try our free app pic2shop, to make sure the barcode scanner is what you need. Pic2shop and pic2shop PRO read EAN-13 and UPC-A barcodes (the ones found on virtually all retail packages and books) and QR code. Pic2shop PRO also reads Code39, Code128, ITF and Codabar.

WE DO NOT PROVIDE THE HOSTING SERVICE NOR THE WEB APPLICATION. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DEVELOPING THE WEB APPLICATION AND HOSTING IT ON YOUR OWN SERVER.

There are four main configuration settings:

1. Barcode formats: select one or more of: EAN-13, UPC-A, EAN-8, UPC-E, ITF (Interlaced 2 of 5), Code 39, Code 128, Codabar (NW-7, USD-4), QR that the scanner will try to decode.

2. Home Page URL: the url of the web page displayed when the app launches (optional).

3. Barcode Lookup URL: the url of the web page fetched when a barcode is scanned or typed. The url must contain the string "CODE", which will be replaced by the actual barcode digits, and optionally the string "FORMAT", which will be replaced by the symbology of the scanned barcode. That is how the barcode information is transmitted to your web app, and how the initial response is displayed to the user.

4. Send GPS coordinates: add a "&gps=latitude,longitude" to the lookup URL (where latitude and longitude are replaced by actual coordinates).

Please note that you can include as many parameters as you like in either URL, they will be passed as is to your server. For example, you could give to each user a URL with a different "&userid=NNN" parameter to automatically identify them with the web application.

Other options are:
-sound,
-vibration, and
-go straight to scanner when the app launches.

A quick and reliable to configure pic2shop PRO is to display a link to each user on a web page. When they click the link after they have installed pic2shop PRO, the app will launch and the three parameters will be set automatically. The link has the form:

p2spro://configure?lookup={lookupURL}&home={homeURL}&gps={True|False}

where any special character in lookupURL and homeURL is replaced by its % encoding. For example, to make pic2shop PRO lookup the UPC database:

p2spro://configure?lookup=http%3A//www.upcdatabase.com/item/CODE

We look forward to the creative uses you will make of pic2shop PRO. Do not hesitate to drop us a line at the support email address to tell us about it.
