  1. Kiosk Mode to Prevent Sleep While Charging

    When Scanalyzer is plugged in and on a stand for library book checkout, it goes to sleep after a while. Can you prevent this from happening?

        Because we all have important work to do, we’ve created a feature that helps you spend less time setting things up and more time getting things done. Just scan one of our Quick Configuration Codes to instantly configure Scanalyzer for your specific task.

        Let us know if you need one of these codes for your organization.

      • Allow Offline Batch Processing

        It would be nice to store scanned information on the device if a network is unavailable and allow the user to send the entire batch at once.

              • More Interaction with Other Apps

                Scanalyzer can send data practically anywhere. Wouldn't it be great if other apps could interact with it?

                  Once again in our quest to help you solve the worlds problems, we have engineered another great solution into Scanalyzer. Now your app can call up Scanalyzer and have it send data back when a barcode is read.

                  To do this, you call scanalyzer://anythingyouwant from your app, webapp, document or website. Then program Scanalyzer with the right URL to send the data where you want it. Check it out and feel free to ask for help if you need it.

                  This feature has been incorporated into version 2.0.0.

                • Better User Manual

                  The user guide needs some updating.

                  • Ad Supported Version

                    $10 seems like a lot for an app. Can we get an ad supported version?

                    • Visual Feedback for Button Presses

                      It's sometimes hard to tell if a button has been pressed.
