The Barcode API detects barcodes in real-time, on device, in any orientation. It can also detect multiple barcodes at once.
It reads the following barcode formats:
- 1D barcodes: EAN-13, EAN-8, UPC-A, UPC-E, Code-39, Code-93, Code-128, ITF, Codabar
- 2D barcodes: QR Code, Data Matrix, PDF-417, AZTEC
It automatically parses QR Codes, Data Matrix, PDF-417, and Aztec values, for the following supported formats:
- Contact information (VCARD, etc.)
- Calendar event
- Geo-location (latitude and longitude)
- AAMVA driver license/ID
