VSBarcodeReader is the most advanced barcode reading library for the iPhone and Android. The library and SDK allow you to add barcode scanning functionality to your app in minutes. Our proprietary algorithms can read blurry UPCs and EANs captured by fixed focus cameras.

Fixed focus and auto focus
Barcode fixed focus Barcode auto focus

The left barcode is seen by a fixed focus camera (iPod Touch, iPad front camera, many popular Android devices). The right image is taken with autofocus. The VSBarcodeReader library can easily read both, thanks to a unique combination of mathematical tools and image processing algorithms.

Why choose our SDKs?
  • We use the very same libraries and APIs in our own apps. Being developers ourselves, we strive to make our libraries as easy to integrate as possible, with sensible defaults and no surprises.
  • Because our apps have millions of users, we are often able to detect an issue before it affects your app. We also keep track of the latest platforms developments and we quickly adapt our products when necessary.
  • Our libraries implement image processing algorithms and nothing else. They don't collect user or device information, they don't access the network, and they don't display ads either.
  • Image processing is our core expertise and our main business. We have been developing, refining and supporting our SDKs for over four years. With them, you always benefit from the latest advances.
