Swipe Assist

Let your users capture bar codes, documents and photos with the touch of a fingertip

A Zebra Technologies software utility that allows users to create and place a virtual data capture button on the screen of their mobile computer, bringing the simplicity and flexibility of touch computing to data capture. Now, users can simply tap the onscreen button to scan a bar code, capture information on a document or take a picture — instead of using the physical data capture button.

The enterprise features you need

  • Flexible button placement

    Swipe Assist allows your users to place their virtual data capture button anywhere along the right or left side of the device — wherever it provides the most natural action. 

  • Tab mode for easy instant scanning

    In Tab mode, users see a small tab-like button on screen that is always present — a simple tap on that tab instantly activates the scanner to capture a bar code.

  • Window mode for expanded functionality

    Users can drag the tab across the screen to enter Window mode, which allows users to select and preview the type of data they want to capture — a single bar code, multiple bar codes or a photo.
