Choosing the right device is important, as there are many things to consider including usability / durability / performance and reliability.
It is an Android only app and therefore Apple iOS devices are not compatible.
The device needs to be Android v5 or above.
If the screen is too small then whilst the app does resize itself where possible, in some cases you may not be able to view the whole screen. A minimum screen size is 5inches or above
The device must have a Camera, as this is used for functionality within the app and crucially, barcode scanning.
The app is published on the Google Play Store. To get started simply download the app, and scan the unique QR code our licensing team will send to you via email.
- We can only guarantee that the devices in the compatible list below will be suitable for our software.
- We are continuing to add to our compatible list so keep up to date by visiting this page for the latest compatible devices.
- Please ensure you enable Android encryption and/or use a PIN to protect access to the device by unauthorised people
- If you use a device managed by a third party and/or use a Mobile Device Management ("MDM") tool, then it is important that (a) Play Store updates are enabled and (b) this does not interfere with specific Invatech settings (*please get in touch with us if you want to discuss this further)
