Barcode Scanner Android App Review

A barcode is an optical machine-readable representation of data, which shows data about the object to which it attaches. Now almost all products have their unique barcodes printed on their body. There are many Barcode reader apps for smartphones and we found ‘Barcode Scanner’ app by ZXing team worth trying.

Barcode Scanner app for Android can scan a variety of barcodes on books, products, and shipping labels. Users simply open the application and scan a barcode. Barcode Scanner then gives the option to search the scanned barcode via a “Product Search,” “Web Search,” or “Shopper Search,” all of which are powered by Google. You can also scan barcodes on products then look up prices and reviews. You can also scan Data Matrix and QR Codes containing URLs, contact info, etc. With these awesome facilities you can also share your contacts, apps, and bookmarks via QR Code. To do this you have to permit app to access your contacts.

This app can read almost all type of products, but at a success rate of about 80-90 percent; as not all products are listed in Google’s search database. In scanning UPC labels on products, Barcode Scanner often accurately finds the product on any of the search options. When scanning tracking labels, a Web search is useful in determining your courier service and ETA. Barcode Scanner’s most notable feature is its ability to scan QR codes and access the URLs, contact information, and calendar events contained within. As time passes out, we have better Barcode placements on products and better databases to find exact products.
