If you want to install and use the Digit-Eyes app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Digit-Eyes in the search bar and press Search. Click on Digit-Eyes application icon. A window of Digit-Eyes on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Digit-Eyes Software Features and Description

Best. Barcode. Reader. Ever! Scan UPC / EAN codes and hear the names of over 37 million products! Make your own QR code labels on the Digit-Eyes website and print them on inexpensive address labels. These barcoded labels may contain text that VoiceOver reads aloud or they can be used to record audio on your iPhone or iPad that is played back whenever the bar code is scanned. Blind? Dyslexic? Having problems reading? Digit-Eyes is for you! With Digit-Eyes, you can - Record your own labels. Visit the Digit-Eyes web site to print specially coded quick-response (QR) digital code labels, apply one to your calendar or a box of leftovers, scan, and record a message. To listen to the recording, just rescan the label. This is how Nancy keeps track of her appointments; how Jeanette labels her canning and how Randy keeps the fridge clean. - Make text-based labels. Visit the Digit-Eyes web site to type up to 250 characters per label, print the specially coded quick-response (QR) barcodes on address labels on your local printer and apply them to your file folders or CDs.

This is how Will’s secretary labels his folders and how Ana snoops through her friends’ CD collection. - Buy pre-printed washable labels. Sew them into your clothing and record whatever you want to about the garment: color, fabric care or what it should be worn with. Even when the labels have been washed, bleached, sent through the dryer or dry-cleaned, you’ll still be able to scan them with the Digit-Eyes app on your iPhone or iPad and hear what you recorded about the garment. This is how Davey makes sure he is wearing matching clothing and how Elizabeth can easily sort the laundry. - Use the manufacturer's product code to find out what the item is. Digit-Eyes includes a feature that enables you to identify many groceries, CDs, and other consumer goods by scanning the UPC and EAN codes on the products. Just point the camera of your iPhone, Pad or iPod Touch 5g at a package label, scan the code, and wait for Digit-Eyes to call our database and tell you what the item is. This is how Deborah picks out her yarn, how Kevin finds the beef stew, and how both get ready to record their audio labels. - Read standard inventory tags in code 39 or code 128 format. This is how Michael knows which printer is which at work and how Ben does the shelf stocking in his store. - Print labels directly from your iPhone on your Bluetooth-connected printer; - Create and read QR vCard format business card information and add the content to your contacts. This is how Digital Miracles gets information from customers at conferences and how we share our own contact information; - Create lists of code that you've scanned; edit them, type additional information and share them with others.

  • Totally useless

    By velmajk
    I don’t often write reviews, but this app was so disappointing, I felt compelled to. In 15 minutes of trying to scan multiple items, even with sighted assistance, I was only able to scan one item using the app. And, that item wasn’t even in the database. Even when the camera was pointed directly at the barcode, the scanner did not pick it up. Please save your money, and buy an overpriced coffee at Starbucks.
  • Terrible customer support

    By Sankyu2
    Customer some more support is terrible! Been trying a month to get technical support to help with the printer time out problem. Both phone call attempts and email attempts failed to get a response. Do not recommend relying on this apps technical support for any assistance. Less than one star.
  • Does professional - quality work - really delivers!

    By Kimputing
    I am not only using this app as it is intended, I am showing it off and amazing everyone with it - especially with my refreshable braille device paired to my iPhone 4. In this way, using the text-labels, Digit - Eyes is accessible and practical for deaf-blind individuals also! Great job with this app! I would LOVE to see the next version include the option to pause while recording a label, with a slider to advance it, back it up, or add to an existing recorded label. This way, we could record entire recipes, etc. in a single label. I'm proud of this app!
  • Highly Recommended!!!

    By CaraQuinn
    Simply put, this app is wonderful and I'd highly recommend it! The camera improvements of the iPhone 4 further enhance the app's functionality,making it even faster and easier scanning bar codes and labels alike. I needed to scan two identically shaped bottles of hair care products and Digit-Eyes made this possible in under five seconds for each bottle with my iPhone 4 and no special lighting conditions. Thanks and kudos to Digital Miracles for making such a great product!!!

  • This app is totally awesome… Not worth $10 but worth $10,000

    By Blind dog Jimmy
    I also find it very useful to identify spices… I pondered for weeks and had to label my spices and realized that they already have a barcode on them and I just scanned them and know what is what… Totally awesome… if you have trouble printing labels to years… Just spend a couple dollars and buy some from Digit-Eyes… It isn't worth the prostration I am always very hesitant to spend money on apps… I reluctantly bought this airport $10 and as I say… It's worth $10,000 to me… there is a slight learning curve to learn how to find and scan the barcode… But in a day or two… I am old pro… If you have questions… They are there to answer the telephone… That is a big plus there is some prostration with learning to find the barcodes… But be patient… Work with it… And… As I say… It is worth it's weight in gold… another thing that is pretty cool about the app is when it recognizes the barcode you hit the more information link and in many instances it gives you nutritional data for that particular product… also… Some products will give you cooking instructions also no more six or seven open cans in the fridge that were mistakenly identified last week and never use because I open the sauerkraut when I was looking for the kidney beans… LOL

  • Great App

    By TheTechPianoPlayerKid
    I like this app, but except for one thing. I would also like to have the prices read along with the item. How are you suppose to know what the price if you're blind/visually impaired? Doing a web search will take to much time, and you won't be able to find someone all the time in the store. What do you do then???!
  • A great app

    By Leliastruve
    This app if you know and have patients how to learn how to focus your camera and look for the barcode is very good. It can be difficult to use but not because of the app, more because of my not knowing where the barcode is. I appreciate the beeping to let me know that I am close to the barcode.
  • App is basic

    By Lamp ire
    Once the barcode is found, the app will give you the name of the item. It does not search any product databases to give detailed information. I am not sure why it claims to be the best. I have already found three average products it does not recognize. Also, if you are looking for cooking instructions this app will not suffice.
  • Best of the barcode scanners

    By Should've gnome
    While their are several barcode scanners available, this one is the simplest to use without sighted assistence. Right away it recognizes a lot of the things in the average kitchen. Figuring out where exactly the barcode is on items to scan them in the first place is the hardest part but does get easier with practice/experience. The more advanced functions of the app are optional, but it only gets more and more useful the more you dive in. Definetly read the website's tips to get all the use out of it.
  • Okay, not that bad…

    By Icicle Salad
    It helps to turn objects on their side, and scanned from above. It still takes some time for some objects that are larger, but it does work. Certain things are found relatively easily, and it Recognized most of the things that I threw at it. Somethings have directions for use, other things do not. I would say that overall then, this is a quick, or relatively so, way to at least figure out what you're holding.
  • The instructions on the website really helped me learn how to use this app to its full potential

    By Joe2k4
    I've had this app for about 2years now, and it's still useful. Hands down this app has helped me so much and is a great tool for finding products in my kitchen.
  • Horrible app - hard time recognizing barcodes

    By Yodaman70
    Bought this app for my visually impaired mom. When it works, it works great. But most of the time even with a perfect image of bar code, the app can't see it. Seems to like boxes better than cans. Only worked about 10% of the time. Please note I am not complaining about local brand bar codes needing to be added. If that is all it was this would be a great app. But it just doesn't "see" the barcode to begin with. App should been free or at least no more than $3.
  • Waste of $19

    By Telluride32
    This app works with the built-in device voice over. There are many free QR code scanners and creators that will do the same thing. Very disappointing I paid for this. I thought it had something more for the price. Run - don't walk - from this app.
