About this app

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

Note that this app can no longer be updated on Google Play, and there will be no further releases.

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.

This app has never had advertisements, and never will. If you are seeing ads, it's from 3rd party malware, that among other things, is also review-bombing this app with claims of adware. This is entirely false.

09/13/2022: Had on phones for years. Today it failed, citing a camera error. Found alternative, but it turned out to be a scam (still got ads after paying), so I uninstalled. While searching alternates, I found this one again and reinstalled. Works now. Relieved! I don't use often, but when needed, it's essential! Wish it had flashlight button. Also QR creator doesn't do Clipboard, Bookmark, or Type-In Text. Application & Contacts QRs work. Also won't rotate.

This app is what I consider the original, tried, and true barcode scanner. I remember using it on my LG Optimus back on Android 2, and it was beautiful. On every Android phone I've owned, this was one of the essential apps to get. Today, it works just as it used to, but with the modernization that all phones and Android updates provide. Thanks for keeping it up to date all these years.

I use this as the primary scanner on my phone, and have found out to be accurate. My only complaint is that it often takes a VERY long time to focus up close, and instead focusses out no matter how close I'm holding the code. I think it should either default to a closer focus setting, or make better use of the cameras focal length sensors.
