Bluetooth Barcode Scanner is an application that can be used as a driver for a HID Bluetooth Barcode Scanner. Since it uses the HID protocol, it can also be used with other HID devices such as Bluetooth Keyboards. However, it has been optimized for Barcode Scanners: Having this direction in mind, we've also added a compact virtual keyboard, to add complementary information after scanning a barcode: eg. product details, prices, and so on.
Using the software is simple, scan for remote bluetooth devices, and select your barcode scanner. Tap on it in the list of found devices, to establish a connection.
Once connected, make sure that BTBarcodeScanner is selected as the only IME (virtual keyboard) in Settings->Keyboards on your Android device, and you are ready to go!
Most Bluetooth Barcode Scanners support the HID Protocol, so they will work with BTBarcodeScanner automatically.
Your Android device must have L2CAP support in the Bluetooth Stack, or else you will be able to discover the Bluetooth Scanner , but you won't be able to connect to it.
BTBarcodeScanner was designed to run on Android OS 2.0 and above. Because of the big number of Android devices available on the Market, we cannot guarantee that the software will work on your particular hardware configuration. We've provided a trial version that can be used without the need for a registration key so please run it to test the compatibility. Purchase the software only if it works with your device.
