Been using it for years I first found and downloaded this app on my Motorola Atrix 4G. I found it so much more useful than other barcode scanners that I recommended it to everyone I know who uses barcode scanner apps. I continued to use it when I switched to the Atrix HD and now have it installed on my Samsung Galaxy S5. There's the rub; I like the app so much it was one of the first I downloaded after buying the Galaxy S5 and I have never seen it work as well as it did on the two previous phones. The auto-focus seems to take a long time to kick in when scanning. I use the app to check readability on products we make at work and it's very frustrating having to wait so long for the app to work. Is there something in the Galaxy S5 hardware/OS that affects the scanning function? Is there some setting I can adjust to fix it? Based on previous performance I would give it at least four stars but given my current functionality I have to mark it down. The main problem is I haven't found a suitable replacement yet so I will keep it installed until I do.
Great app; exceptional support from the developers. Recognizes QR and other common barcodes quickly and reliably. Very easy to use. Keeps your scans in a scan history list so you may take advantage of data encoded in those codes at a latter time. Although the App is called a "Barcode Scanner", it is equally good in compiling QR codes which encodes data you want. Overall - this 2-in-1 tool greatly facilitates sharing information in our digital world. Has exemplary support from the developer. Although interface of the app is generally self-explanatory, some app's options/functions were not quite clear for me at first. After failing to find the app-related user guide anywhere on the web - contacted the developer. Got response from them with all the answers almost immediately.
This app does not work well with the talkback screenreader. Being able to use a barcode scanner to identify products I can't see is appealing, but this app wn't be it. It has a few buttons that I assume are controls, but they're unlabelled so no idea what they do. If the accessibility issues are fixed, I'll revisit it, but for now I'll go try out some other apps instead.
NO product info Dwnld'd & used to scan 8 random items on my desk, 5of8 popular, recognized retailed items, cigs, sd card, spice container etc. None brought up any info, altho results page indicated all had been scanned prior, some several hundred times. Also very slow to initiate scan, 15-20 "pulses" before reading barcode. Guess I'm still looking for a scanner!
Automatic 5 For Scanning Images I needed a barcode app and wanted maximum flexibility, like pulling codes from Web pages and NONE of the high-rated apps on Play seemed to be able to do this. Excuse me, but WTF? *No one* else can scan an arbitrary set of pixels whether live or stored? Really? Wow. Remembered using this before and BINGO! I can load images and pull from Web pages. *Automatic* purchase to support and remove ads. Shameful that others can't/won't provide this functionality, so 5 stars unless major FUBAR.
Simple and Excellent Fine app. Folks need to remember that most problems with free form scanning are physical problems, that is problems with the hardware used or the operators ability to handle the hardware. My tablet's rear camera is a gem with an excellent and stable auto-focus. As a result, it delivers fine snapshots of the barcodes and MHL marks that the app deciphers flawlessly.
