Is there an app that allows your Android device to act as a barcode reader, in such a way that it can send something like keyboard inputs to a computer in real-time?

I made a free alternative: Barcode to PC: Wi-Fi scanner.

It sends realtime keystrokes, no copy&paste required, works everywhere

  • I tried your app, but for my sorry, phone and server couldnt connect :/ I tried and manual adding server.... the same Android 5.1 / Win 7 64bit

  • @minimiro Did you add the server to windows firewall exceptions? If yes it may be your antivirus that blocks the app.

  1. Install Barcode Scanner. In Barcode Scanner app settings check "copy to clipboard" after scanning.

  2. Install ClipSync

Now your PC should have the info in clipboard so do Ctrl+V.

I haven't tested it myself but it should work, and both apps are free.


I made a (free) app that shows scanned codes on webpage, allowing easy copy, updated real-time.

Web Barcode
