DMC reader apps for Android
If you go on Google Play store and type in keywords as DMC reader apps, Data matrix code scanner or 2D code reader you will be surprised how many apps exists on this topic. However there are some apps that are only able to read QR code or are so full of commercial material that are almost impossible to use.
The biggest difference in DMC reader apps is the barcode decoding engine. This means that some decoding engines are able to read codes that are insufficiently illuminated, damaged, poorly printed etc. I have made some tests with different apps and there was a significant difference when it comes to border samples when discussion DMC size and distance of reading.
There are also some useful features that are implemented in some apps like history of scanned data matrix codes, sharing possibilities, creating some personalized settings and so on.
Below is my list of my favorite 3 DMC reader apps for Android phones. All apps are free and can be used for non-commercial purposes.
