QR code scanning test

I've used genymotion for all testing up until now. However I now need to test my apps ability to read the QR code from a mobile phone screen. I don't see a dev kit with this option. My friend has a clover unit at his store, but according to your documentation I can not side load my app onto his Clover Station without being published.

The Clover dev kit devices available at http://cloverdevkit.com/ are physically identical to the retail ones and run the same software. They include the front facing camera which is able to read decode QR codes and will send an Intent broadcast with the value and type. We don't offer a dev kit for Clover Station but it should also be able to read QR codes using the rear camera with no problem in the same way as Clover Mobile and Mini. See BarcodeResult.java in https://github.com/clover/clover-andr... for more info. You are correct that retail devices do not allow sideloading APKs for security purposes so the only way to test on a real device is to buy a dev kit.
