Good app. Added features and optimizations are great, though just the portrait mode alone is a big plus. That's always been an annoyance with ZXing Barcode Scanner. No ads, no spyware, no online junk, works in airplane mode. It is a paid app but at a buck it's cheaper than a soda.
Doesn't scan all barcodes If you name your app "Barcode Scanner" I expect it to work in any kind of barcode, I mean even the fancy kinds like the one UPS uses, or Datamatrix. But this app doesn't scan these! So until the developer is honest and says in the description what types it can scan or the name is changed then I will keep 1 star only as the name is misleading.
Works well for all barcodes I use :) Great job!Anyways,I have one suggestion:It will be a great con to implement this app also as some kind of an input method for Android (similar as a keyboard) so I can scan barcodes directly to custom web apps for example. The plain text or app share methods are good,but in such situation it is an unnecessary extra step when you consider you have always to share to clipboard for example,then switch to browser and in best case longhold and paste data (because some specific web apps support only Ctrl+V combination).
Wish this app allowed for a quick note to be taken for each scan (remembering the last text entered, with text automatically selected after scanning if the user wishes to over-write it). That would be an additional column in the history. So I could scan something and type "yada yada" as the note, and let that string apply to the next 3 or 300 scans -- then move on to other items and change the note, and it would persist as the default string through those scans, etc. All recorded as an added item in history.
Great Utility! Very stable, easy to use, works every time! With over 100 Million people using it, you'd think that more than 50 Thousand of those could fork out the buck or so to support the freaking Developers!
Asked the dev some questions to improve my implementation, he did not repond to any of my mails. I have no more reasons to use this app
