There are thousands of devices that run Android OS and we cannot possibly test them all. The purpose of this list is to provide users with a reliable reference source to know which devices will work acceptably with our Finale Inventory Barcode scanning application and which ones to avoid.
This list will be updated as frequently as is possible but do not think that if you do not see a device on this list that it is automatically good or bad. Please send device compatibility inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have purchased and tested a specific piece of hardware devices and have found they work great with our Finale Inventory Barcode Scanning Application, please forward detailed information of what you are using and how you use it, and we will add it to the "User Tested and Approved" list below.
Also, if you have tested devices and found them not acceptable we would like to know the details of those too!
Officially tested - Recommended
- Dedicated Scanner Hardware - Built-in laser
- Symbol/Motorola - TC55
- Symbol/Motorola - MC40
- Android OS Phones and Tablets
While you can use Phones and Tablets, they only have a built-in camera for capturing a barcode. This tends to be very slow, clunky, and frustrating. You can improve the performance and acceptability by using a Bluetooth linked/paired barcode scanner
Note: When pairing a Bluetooth scanner to a phone or tablet you may lose keyboard functionality.
Bluetooth linked Scanners to Android OS Devices
These devices require you to have an Android OS scanner, phone or tablet to connect/pair them with.
- Symbol/Motorola - RS507
- EYOYO - EYOYO-R30 1D or 2D
Officially tested - Working with noted exceptions
MUNBYN - IPDA037 Industrial PDA w/NFC & 2D Zebra Barcode Scanner
This unit is very popular online but the price is normally higher than our officially tested and recommended devices above. We do not see the value in this unit but it will work with exceptions.
- NOTED EXCEPTIONS: This unit does not use a data wedge, as other more robust scanners do. Thus, you must configure the interface between their built-in scanner and the Android OS to use Keyboard mode instead of their default and preferred Scan content on cursor mode. This will allow it to interact with our application. It is just a little slower than our recommended devices above.
Officially tested - Do Not Recommend
