    Android Scanner SDK Demo App Problem

    Thomas Schwendler

      We are integrating the Scanner SDK into our existing Android application.  To help accomplish this, we are using the demo app source code that is provided in the SDK as a reference for our integration coding.  We are able to successfully connect to the scanner and scan a tag, but after you scan one tag you are not able to scan another tag.  After 30 seconds or so, the scanner does 3 long beeps with a red led light, then you are able to scan another tag.

       

      We built the demo app that is included with the Android SDK, and it works exactly the same way as our app does, but the demo app that is on the Google Play store does not have this bug and scans multiple tags without a problem.  It is obvious that the demo app that is on the Google Play store is a newer version than the source code of the app that is provided with the SDK.  Do you know what steps we are missing in our scanning process that is preventing us from scanning additional tags, or is the source code to the latest demo app available for download somewhere?

       

      Thanks for any help.

          I have done some more research into this and have found the following:

          • The Version Name of the Scanner Control app that is included in the Scanner SDK is 1.1.10.0.
          • The Version Name of the Scanner Control app that is on the Google Play store is 2.0.3.0.

          I am thinking that the version of the app in the Google Play store was built with a newer version of the Scanner SDK that works correctly with this DS-3678 scanner.  Can we get this version of the Scanner SDK so we can use in when developing our mobile app?

           

          This is a critical issue for us because we have customers who are using this scanner and we need to provide the ability to scan with our app immediately.
