Editors' Review


Of the many bar code scanners available for Android, the simply named Barcode Scanner makes a good starting place, especially for new Android users. With it, you're at liberty to scan QR codes to download Android apps, add a contact to your phone, or jump to a Web link. The scanner also reads retail bar codes, triggering a Google search for whichever product comes up. Though Barcode Scanner isn't as precise as other shopping apps that follow up their scan with a database search on where to find the item, it does its duty as a simple, multipurpose scanning app.

"Okay up to last 2010, downhill since"

December 02, 2011  |  By Former Big Iron Guy

 |  Version: Barcode Scanner for Android 3.6


None that I can discern.


Support for bar codes can be spotty. They want YOU to enter local prices for them. Matches between you product scanned and what is on the web commerce sites often mismatched. Junk now. Used to have it on 3 phones. Uninstalled on all of them.


Barcode Scanner *was* kinda sorta okay until about the first of the year. The feature set and UI have deteriorated in the mean time. Even Google Shopper is better than this.
