Barcode Scanner

Barcode Scanner


Scan barcodes on products, or Data Matrix and QR Codes containing URLs, contact info, etc.

Almost every question and negative review comment is addressed by one of the following. Please save everyone time by reading these first:

Nobody is stealing your information. The app allows you to share contacts, apps, and bookmarks in a QR Code. This is why contacts permissions are needed. See "Visit Developer Website" below ( https://github.com/zxing/zxing/wiki/Frequently-Asked-Questions ).

If your device is not scanning, first try workarounds for device bugs in Settings. Enable all of them, and then try disabling one at a time to determine which is necessary. If this does not help, try clearing the device cache and settings from Android settings.

If these still do not work and you believe there is an app problem, send a message with the following information. Messages without this information can't be acted on, so are ignored.

- Device type
- A basic description of what does not work: crashes? does not scan? looks strange?
- Acknowledgement that you tried the steps above first
- A device log capture from when it starts

User reviews of Barcode Scanner
Used to work, now it's broken with the latest release. It refuses to focus on my Samsung galaxy S2 Edit: not really broken, just go to settings and turn off 'Use Auto Focus' and it'll work properly again.

Hits the mark most of the time although never when you really, really need it and as long as I remember that just because something has a barcode, doesn't mean this will tell you all about it ....!!

Wonderful productive App This is my first Barcode Reader App and I tried it on various barcodes and QR codes and it detected all of them flawlessly. Like some reviewers pointed out this App only supports landscape mode but in my opinion that's hardly a negative point as I can put up with It. Kudos to the developer for doing a fine job.
