Scoured the web looking for decent no-extra-perms free barcode scanner. Forget it, it doesn't exist. Okay, what can I pay for? THIS. Buck-fifty. Minimal perms. VERY sensitive (I scanned a barcode off a disk drive *inside its anti-static wrapper). Nice UI, lots of different formats, *can* do things like call or product search but it doesn't *force* anything. Only drawback is you do have to orient the barcode so that its idea of "up" matches the camera's... so 4.75 stars if I could do that. (I don't give reviews often. This is worth an exception!)
No unneeded permissions... Good to see such thing still exists...
BIGBOSS Very good app
Perfect with addition of history export This barcode scanner does not require any of the permissions I hate to give to applications such contact lists or call history. (Corrected in latest release the following issue, correspondingly increase rating to 5) Unfortunately, the removal of the "send history" function also removed any other option to use your scans on your computer. I do wish the developer of this would have implemented a bulk copy and paste function (a very large Copy and Paste in a comma separated list) or a output to a file.
Nice app Much faster than the other (non-'plus') scanner app without needing a bunch of sketchy permissions access.
