BarcodeChecker App for Android

Check the barcode tickets with an Android smartphone.The BarcodeChecker app allows you to scan and check barcodes tickets with one or multiple Android smartphone(s). Scan barcode tickets printed with TicketCreator or any other barcodes from an Excel file.

The smartphone must be connected to a Windows PC, which runs the BarcodeChecker software as server.

The BarcodeChecker app is free, however, you need the TicketCreator Barcode edition or a BarcodeChecker license to run the server. You can test the server in demo mode. 



Android smartphone(s), Android 2.2 and later
(as server, with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8)
Wi-Fi router (recommended, not required)

License for TicketCreator Barcode edition or BarcodeChecker license


Supported barcodes

The camera reads barcodes in the formats Code 2 of 5 interleaved, QR code, and others.The app supports barcodes with up to 30 characters.

The camera of the phone is optimal to read QR codes. You can also use it to read 1D barcodes (Code 2 of 5 interleaved, Code 39/93/128, UPC-A/E, EAN-8/13), and 2D barcodes (PDF 417, Data Matrix, and Aztec), but that can be slow and inconvenient.

Barcode scanners that are connected to your phone by Bluetooth read 1D or 2D barcodes much quicker and more reliably than the camera of your phone. See below for details.


There are three ways to connect the phone to the server PC

Direct connection of phone to Wi-Fi router (recommended)A.) Direct connection to router (recommended)

Connect the server PC to a Wi-Fi router and create a secure local network. Then connect the smartphones directly to that Wi-Fi router to get a fast and robust connection.


Direct connection to laptop (requires Windows 7 or Windows 8)B.) Direct connection to laptop (requires Windows 7 or Windows 8)

The software Connectify (free) turns the Wi-Fi card of a Windows 7 or Windows 8 laptop into a router. Install Connectify and create an access point. Then connect the smartphones directly to that laptop.


Connection of phone to sever over internetC.) Connection over internet

If the phones have a fast and reliable internet connection the whole time while scanning, you can also connect to the server over the internet. However, this connection is failure-prone (if you have a weak signal) and you must create a port forwarding on your router!

Scan tickets with a Bluetooth scanner (recommended for 1D barcodes)
