Softmatic - The Barcode Experts
Solve your barcode problem once and for all: Softmatic BarcodePlus creates and exports all common linear and 2D matrix codes in seconds. If you previously had your barcodes made by an external supplier, this little app pays for itself after just one code!
Here's how it works in a nutshell: Select code symbology from the list of available barcodes, enter your data, check the preview, export to file for use in other applications (see screenshot #2). That's it.
Softmatic BarcodePlus creates linear codes for warehousing, retail and pharmaceuticals as well as all common 2D area matrix codes. Also supported in full is the new Databar GS1 symbology (see screenshot #3 for a complete list, screenshot #4 for a visual). The bar codes can be exported as EPS, SVG, or high resolution TIFF/PNG. The generated codes can then be imported and used in all common graphics, DTP and word processing applications across all operating systems. Use the barcodes for dustjackets, book and magazine covers, packaging, coupons and much more.
Softmatic BarcodePlus also supports EAN height truncation, bar width reduction and bounding box markers. Built-in safeguards prevent you from creating invalid barcodes. For your convenience, all settings are maintained between sessions.

What's New in Version 4.67
• FIX: Corrects a small issue with macOS "Sierra"
Great App! Only One Concern...
All in all this seems to be a good barcode generator, it’s simple and easy to use. The only issue I run into with it, is that it doesn’t provide or verify the check digit for ITF-14s. If there is some way that this can be fixed, then it would be as good as Barcode Pro. I went to the company’s website to request that they fix it in their next version update, but I could not find a customer service or comment section, so I really hope that they read this review and consider mending the issue.
Other than that, this is a fantastic app! Btw, it does provide check digits for other types of barcodes, such as UPCs, just not ITF-14s for some reason. I do highly recommend this barcode maker to both packaging & design professionals:)
