Jackdaw is Can Factory’s first Swift product available via the Apple app store.

Jackdaw provides simple barcode scanning and QR code creation for iOS, universally for all devices with a camera running iOS8 for 9 different types of barcode format; UPC-E, EAN, Code39, Code93, Code128, QR, Aztec, Data Matrix and PDF417 (excluding micro formats).

As 2D barcodes are becoming increasingly familiar in everyday life, from products to billboard posters, we hope Jackdaw will provide users with a focused way of translating that information and acting upon it.

Simple Interface

Line up your barcode, tap to focus and use the optional light for low light conditions, no fuss it’s that easy.

If your barcode is one of the recognised formats you’ll be shown the decoded result and a variety of context driven options, depending on the content. If you scanned a URL for example, you’ll be asked if you want to view it in the built-in browser, or copy it for use elsewhere.

Want to look again at something you scanned previously, just check your history. Or maybe you want to create your own QR code and share it with others.


  • Scan any of the following code types; UPC-E, EAN, Code39, Code93, Code128, QR, Aztec, Data Matrix and PDF417 (excluding micro formats)
  • Create your own QR codes to share
  • Open a recognised URL directly in the application
  • Email a recognised address
  • Call or SMS a recognised phone number
  • Add a recognised contact to your address book
  • Add a recognised event to your calendar
  • View a map of a recognised location
