Seriously, this is the must have application to have on your Android Phone! The amount of use you can get out of it is amazing. We use bar codes throughout this site so make sure you've come prepared for easy access to apps on the Android Market with this amazing application.
Imagine never having to manually enter in contact information again...
On the Market here.
The Barcode Scanner is a really easy application to use once you get the hang of it and you will find it to be very valuable as well.
The Barcode Scanner uses the camera on your phone to overlay a red bar which is used to read a barcode label.
To use read a regular barcode simply position the barcode in the red line and your camera will attempt to auto focus. You may need to move the phone toward or away from the object to get a good read.
Once you have a read the application will make a beeping sound and present the barcode to you with a couple of options.
The product search will search online stores for the bar code and the web search will search for any content out there on the web for this item.
The product search is the money saver here; so I can be at a store and do my own price check using the barcode to see where I can get a product for a cheaper price, and buy it with my Android phone.
Honestly I was able to save money with this application over Christmas, especially with toys for my daughter and younger cousins.
But that is nothing compared to what we can do with other types of barcodes.
