What do I need to know if I’m replacing dedicated scanners with smartphones or tablets?

Many people exploring device replacement want to keep software changes to a minimum, and in this scenario most people select either our SparkScan API or no-code Scandit Express application. 


SparkScan is a pre-built component for high-speed scanning that includes an out-of-the-box user interface (UI) optimized for efficiency and a frictionless worker experience. 


  • Large, moveable, semi-transparent scan button floats on top of any app – no need to design the scanning interface.
  • Hold the phone right or left handed, scan from any orientation, and scan without relying on a screen for aiming.


It’s ready with just a few lines of code. (Don’t believe us? Check out our documentation for iOS, Android, React Native, and Xamarin iOS/Android/Forms.).

Scandit Express is a turnkey keyboard wedge solution that instantly upgrades smartphones or tablets with a smart keyboard wedge barcode scanner, allowing you to scan directly into any input field from your keyboard. No need to change any software or do any coding.


Security and deployment


You can use mobile device management (MDM) or enterprise mobility management (EMM) systems to easily distribute either product.
