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

    Pros

    None that I can discern.

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

    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.

    "Keep scanning for a better scanner"

    January 29, 2011   |   By impulse60

    Version: Barcode Scanner for Android 3.53

    Pros

    Ease of use. People watching you use it think you are a techno-god.

    Cons

    Lots of false positives
    Pricing info often not given or inaccurate

    Summary

    When it works, it is so cool. However, that is only one time in five...so one star of five is my rating.

    "Simply doesn't work"

    January 23, 2011   |   By McKMiRiCLEFiNGRS

    Version: Barcode Scanner for Android 3.52

    Pros

    It does scan the barcode

    Cons

    All it says is that it is a product, i understand that it is a product...

    Summary

    Really just not worth using, when will you ever need it? unless you need to find the price of a certain item, in which it will not find for you, because it will just tell you that it is a product.
