I tried several other scanners, but this is the best by far. Very simple interface: start, point, read. It decodes instantly, shows you the type of code, and the content. You can then decide what you want to do with it. It stores your scan in case you want to use it later. With QR codes, it displays both the content of the code and the url redirect if there is one. I've been using it for 5 years, on 2 different phones and several versions of Android. Still the best scanner I've seen. I have no idea why it doesn't have a higher rating.
Been using this for years! Free and no ads. Doesn't request a bunch of weird permissions like most other barcode scanners. The only problem I have with it is that you have to dig through the settings to turn the flash on. If there was a quick way to turn it on or off like in the camera app, this would be ideal.
Great app! This is the best barcode scanning app I've found. Additionally, it's free, ad-free, and open source. If you need a good barcode scanner, this is where you should start. Note: almost all of the bad reviews are because of permissions; the app description/FAQ explains why they're required, and the app is open source if you really want to verify it!
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. Had the same issue with Moto X 2nd gen (now with Galaxy S7E).
When it works it's great! Works fine on my phone, with lighted camera. Does nothing on Galaxy Tab 3, tho cameras are otherwise the same. Found a few alternate apps that do not require this specific barcode scanner, so no longer necessary.
Good but could be easier to use and look better Works well and a good, reliable app, but however. Need to hold my phone very still to work. Also need to have barcode item on a surface. Can't hold both to scan. Only scans in landscape mode. To fix these issues, I'd be prepared to pay £2 for a pro mode. A material design would be good too. Looks very android 4.0
