Over last 7 years installed and then removed many barcode & QR scanners on my smart phones. Some have worked better than others but this one is probably the Mother of all Scanner Apps as it has remained Open Source and spawned a whole generation of other similar apps. Both saving everyday people like me thousands and helping profit oriented developers make money. Over many years I have become confident this App does Not harvest or steal my data, unlike many other apps out there.
Functional The app works for what you need and that is all. Interface could use an update. Focus times can be slow, though it will usually find and scan the code within a few seconds. Install if you need the functionality. Probably the best scanner until Google (hopefully) develop a stock scanner for Android.
The app can only read barcodes when the phone is oriented at landscape mode. If the phone is in the portrait mode, the reading screen remains in landscape mode and I'm unable to read the code (when at the settings menu, the screen follows the phone's orientation, the problem is just when at the scanning mode). I already tried to change the "no automatic rotation" option, but the problem persists.
Doesn't work. I have other apps with scanners in them that work with no problems but the scanner apps on their own don't seem to. How come they can't or don't make these apps so you can enter the barcodes manually if needed? I would rather just type the code then stand in a store with a scanner that may or may not work.
Good app No ads, works well most of the time. Occasionally has difficulties focussing but only one time in twenty or so. Used it to tag barcodes in the car lot to get keys. Only drawback there was remembering which was which in the history. Maybe allow a shorr note to be added?
No frills Works as advertised: it scans barcodes. The "web lookup" function can be counter-intuitive or even downright useless. Does anyone ever use QR codes anyway? I've never seen any real people use them, only advertisers who place them alongside equally pointless hashtags ;)
