Praise for Softmatic Barcode Software

★★★★★

"Does exactly what I need for generating ISSN and ISBN barcodes for books and journals. I was extremely pleased to be able to try the software out by visiting the Softmatic website. This enabled me to establish the level that I needed before purchase. Really simple to use and good value. Check digit and add-on functionality works perfectly.""

★★★★★

"Ich hatte die Vorgängerversion die eigentlich schon perfekt war, aber leider nicht mehr unter Mountain-Lion lief. Der Entwickler hat sie jetzt angepasst. Für 18 Euro kann ich es auch verschmerzen, dass es hier kein kostenloses Update gab. Es fehlt noch die Auswahl eigener Schriften und die Möglichkeit, den kleinen Pfeil am Code rechts unten zu eliminieren. Letzteres kann man dann zwar in Illustrator machen, aber wenn's gleich passen würde, wäre es auch toll. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist Top!"

★★★★

"Real nice software for barcoding. Does what is says. I could use a preset funtion in a future update, for maintaining different sizes in a series of packaging designs."

- Dutch Customer

★★★★★

"This application really couldn't be easier to use. Simply select the barcode type that you need, then type (or paste) your barcode number. Save. That's it. It would be nice to be able to save presets. Also the ability to generate a sequence of barcodes would be great, but these are minor quibbles considering the price of this application."

TIP See Softmatic BarcodeFactory for sequential barcodes.
