Comment: Changed "smart phone" to 1 word to comply with IDD Standards


Churches or schools might distribute bar-coded cards to parents in order to speed up child check-in. Parents frequently ask if they can use bar-code storage apps to store these cards on their smart phones smartphones the same way they do with their retail loyalty cards or credit cards. They may be using popular smart phone smartphone apps like Key Ring™, CardStar®, or Passbook® to store their cards. These apps create and store digital editions of cards that can be rendered on a smart phone smartphone display and then scanned directly from it.

You can store your church or school cards with a smart phone smartphone app. To scan the cards directly from a smart phone smartphone display, using your Datalogic Magellan scanner, you must enable cell phone scanning.


In the image below, the bar code on the church check-in card was stored in the smart phone smartphone app. When the parents check in their children, they'll open the smart phone smartphone app and select the church check-in card. Its bar code will render on the smart phone smartphone display, and it can be scanned.
