"Get your own barcode, QR and Data Matrix scanner in your Android"

Reviewed by / May 09, 2011

Barcode scanner allows you to read barcodes on products in order to look up prices and reviews. You will also read Data Matrix and QR codes.

Barcode scanner does exactly what its developer description says:

It scans with back camera of your Android barcodes on products to get the prices and reviews. That way you will compare the prices of the same product in different stores what will help you to find the best match. What's more, you will useful data about each product: movies lenght, synopsis, books sequels, etc. We've noticed that it doesn't find articles sometimes and we guess it's due to those articles are not in Google's database.

It scans Data Matrix and QR codes and read their content: URLs, contact info, apps, sms, notes, etc. You can also create QR codes to send contacts, apps, bookmarks and other useful info.

Barcode Scanner is the only app developed by ZXing Team, an emerging group of developers. thanks to it they're being quite successful though.

Both barcode scanning and QR & Data Matrix scanning are several similar apps. However Barcode Scanner is one of our favorite thanks to its ease of use, good-looking interface and reliable performance. We sincerely recommend it.

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 (

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.

If these still do not work and you believe there is an app problem, send a message with the following information. Messages without this information can't be acted on, so are ignored.

- Device type
- A basic description of what does not work: crashes? does not scan? looks strange?
- Acknowledgement that you tried the steps above first
- A device log capture from when it starts

    Barcode scanners don't need to be that big. This one is perfect.
