barsent ....................................Weird name, I know right! barsent is a simple and free app that lets you set a predefined number in the options and then any subsequent BarCode scan results will be sent to that number instantly without any prompts. The barcode reader by ZXing Team is however required for this app. Get it here! CLICK ...

I have installed the application "Barcode Scanner" from here https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.zxing.client.android To install an application, I open the "Barcode Scanner" application and hold the phone up to the barcode. It scans and decodes it automatically and then gives me the option to "open brower". I click on that and it eventually ...

I've never used it but I remember reading about Key Ring Rewards Cards. Try that and see what you think. Edit: I also tried searching the market for "loyalty cards" and came up with this list of apps. I was going to specifically name some but as I haven't tried them I thought it best that I just give you the list. Seems there are quite a few that will help ...

As already described in above comments, this would require taking a screenshot and saving it as an image file. Havind done that, there are several barcode scanners available in the playstore supporting "loading" of barcodes from image files, as e.g. QR BARCODE SCANNER or mentioned Google Goggles. I don't know of any barcode scanner capable of "scanning your ...

FREE solution: I've had success with a fraction of a drop of water or oil over the lens of the camera on my ZTE Score. It causes bar codes close to the camera to be in focus, and they read reliably. Enough to form a convex surface, but not so much that it drops off. The ZTE Score has a smooth back; I dip my finger in oil and, with the lens aimed up, ...

(I'll address your 2nd edit below...) Some cheap camera modules don't include an auto focus feature, i.e. they are fix-focus'ed to infinity. Barcode scanners need a near focus though and cannot (or hardly) scan the resulting blurry images that result from infinity-focused fix-focus cameras. The only way around this would be to attach a macro lens ...

If you are seeing a QR code on a web page that you are browsing with your phone, then generally there will also be a clickable link to the same place as the QR code points to. If you are seeing a QR code on a web page on your browser on another device and want to follow it using your phone, you can install any one of a number of barcode scanning apps and ...

Goodreads has an app for this that works with their website, which includes book reviews and recommendations as well. You can sort books by shelves, which can correspond to physical shelves if you choose (e.g. living room, bedroom, lent out to a friend).

After spending the whole week searching for this issue and testing different settings and tricks recommended by users from other forums, I have finally found the culprits. It seems that the least mark of your fingertips on the lens of your phone's camera will make it less sensitive to QR codes and Barcodes in general. That and also not having AutoFocus On. ...

It looks like they explicitly support a few hundred (650, as of this reading) rewards programs. So they don't support just every last bar code you might want to store, unfortunately. That said, they do show a Toys R Us reward card in their banner graphic so you'd think it ought to upload that one. My guess is that you should nudge them about the reward ...

To save you from copy-pasting, there is an interesting alternative option: some kind of "Barcode keyboard", i.e. using a QR-Reader as input method. There are a few apps available at Google Play which (according to their description) offer exactly that. An example fitting for your case would be Barcodescanner Keyboard: This soft-keyboard scans and enters ...

It's easy to achieve a similar workflow with an off-the-shelf barcode scanner app such as ZXing's Barcode Scanner. After scanning a barcode in that app, you can press a button to copy the scanned text to the clipboard. After switching to your other app, you simply long-tap the text field to paste the text into it. It's a few more screen taps than you're ...

The Bar-coded Boarding Pass (BCBP) code is common for flight tickets. There could be other codes too, but there doesn't seem to be any app for it yet. Mails also have different codes. The US seems to be using Intelligent Mail barcode (IM barcode). IMb Reader can be used for this. Bottomline: there are several possibilities for the codes. You need to check ...

Flow Powered by Amazon can read barcodes, QR codes, and even does character recognition to read CD, DVD, and book titles, plus some other cool stuff. If you're very much into the Amazon.com ecosystem it's worth a look. (Techcrunch write-up) Amazon Price Check sticks to just doing Amazon.com price lookups.

I use ShopSavvy Barcode Scanner to scan barcodes and check for reviews. It works with Google books and other services. You can also let it search online; it will open your browser and search the barcode. I'm not sure about alternatives, though. But if it takes you to Amazon, Amazon can give you recommendations.

I use Kinoni Barcode Reader Pro. A lot of other "Send Barcode to PC" Apps require you to manually setup and configure the server part on your the PC (mostly VNC) that receives the barcode. With this one, you just install the App, download their PC Setup Program and make sure that your phone is connected to the same network as your PC. That's it. ...
