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.

Deformed camera image during scanning It's more of an annoyance than a problem (codes still scan OK), but the camera image while scanning is stretched in landscape and squashed in portrait.

Really useful app An excellent app overall, scans everything I need it to (+) and is pretty efficient (fast)(+). Keeps a history(+) and allows individual scans to be emailed / txted etc. Horrible overlay - its too invasive of the screen (-). Would be nice to have it save the pictures of the barcodes scanned into a folder or something so they can be transferred more easily - also that torch thing someone else mentioned about having a shortcut for the camera flash on the scanning display.. its a hassle to go into options every time and the auto flash is too sensitive sometimes.

Works as described I bought this for the PDF417 support and it worked to scan my Michigan Drivers License.

good, but.. I cannot get it to correctly read large qr code images of 1k or more text data, though it does read an image file correctly. It tries to interpret the image as a upc code. Also seems completely unable to read stacked datamatrix arrays: it can read only lone, single ones.
