We’re in the process of updating the barcode and QR-code scanning capability in AppSheet apps. We will be providing a default scanner based on Google’s ML and scanning technology. As we roll this out in phases, some of you will observe some changes. Scanning on Android devices will have a slightly different user interface and experience. While the focus mode and scan success indicator are temporarily unavailable, the flashlight and camera scanning features will continue to be available. At this time, there is no change in the iOS device scanning experience.
As a reminder, barcode and QR-code scanning is not supported in the Free and Premium plans. However, whatever plan your account is on, prototype apps can always experiment with scanning. As we roll this change out, there may be a period of time during which prototype apps use the newer scanner experience while deployed apps maintain the former scanner experience.
