Barcode Scanner+ (Plus)

Barcode Scanner+ (Plus)


Barcode Scanner+, from Sean Owen of ZXing Team, uses the camera on your device to read barcodes of all kinds. After scanning barcodes you find on products, for example, you can discover prices and reviews for it. Or, when scanning newer two-dimensional barcodes, like QR Codes, you can access contact information, bookmarks, web site links and more inside.

Barcode Scanner+ is an enhanced version of the popular, free Barcode Scanner application, which is a product of the ZXing open-source barcode scanning library from Google. Barcode Scanner+ is based on the same code, and has been developed by one of the two primary authors of the original Barcode Scanner, Sean Owen.

Barcode Scanner+ includes all of Barcode Scanner's functionality, and is intended as a drop-in replacement for Barcode Scanner. It adds several enhancements:

Better barcode scanning

- New image processing algorithm for detection of 1D barcode formats, including UPC and EAN product codes
- Uses both cores of dual-core processors
- Optionally, scan for Aztec and PDF417 barcodes (note: PDF417 support is 'alpha' quality)
- Rewritten to take advantage of Java 6, Android 2.2+ APIs, and latest Android SDK features

Refined user interface

- Now scan in tall "portrait" orientation, in addition to "landscape" orientation
- More intuitive pattern-based scanning guide
- Streamlined and improved user interface elements
- Android 4 and tablet device support
- Expanded Help screens

New features

- Decode a barcode from an image file
- Option to scan light-on-dark barcodes
- Activate device's LED light to scan in low light
- Basic support for scanning NFC tags
- Amazon product information

Also available in "simple" version, without functionality that requires special permission. See "Barcode Scanner+ Simple".

Purchasing this application also supports development of the ZXing open-source barcode scanning library.

Barcode Scanner+ does not collect, store or transmit information about its users, nor usage of the application. The application accesses personal information such as contacts and bookmarks only in order to implement application functionality, such as sharing contacts and bookmarks by QR Codes on screen.

Great barcode scanner I found some other barcode scanners would only scan UPC, for product searches, but this one can scan anything and copy the scanned characters to clipboard - very convenient! And I like the bulk mode where it allows multiple scans continuously. Recently I have to call Comcast to provision a new modem, so I have to read them the serial number - there are things like Z and 2 that are difficult to tell . I used this to quickly scan the product box to make sure I read off the numbers correctly.

Works. But seems unaware of aspect ratio of camera -- it fills the whole 16:9 screen with the 4:3 image from the camera. I'm going back to ZXing tean version for now. Goes over the status line too which I hate. :-(
