Barcode scanner allows you to read barcodes on products and look up prices and reviews.

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.

Developer's original description available here
Scan barcodes on products, or Data Matrix and QR Codes containing URLs, contact info, etc.

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 ( https://github.com/zxing/zxing/wiki/Frequently-Asked-Questions ).

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

    Able to scan QR codes up to Version 10 (57x57). If the team could upgrade the app so it could scan the Version 40 QR Code (177x177) that would be just super!

    Parece que a câmera tá sempre desfocada, tentei de tudo, uns 25 produtos, só pegou um e ainda assim não mostrou o que era, nem preços, nem nada. Os QR vai numa boa.
