If you ever wanted one of those fancy barcode scanners, then you might want to give this application a download. This amazing new scanner works with any of your Android gadget as long as it has a camera that acts as the scanner itself.

The program was developed by Zxing (Zebra Crossing) and can be used for scanning various barcodes from books, CDs, and even QR codes for downloading apps. Although it might seem like something only techies might only go gaga for, it’s a fun way to learn more information about the products you scan. 

For people wondering what you would need a personal barcode scanner for? Well, there are a couple of good things in having a scanner. For instance, you can easily trace or find out more information about the product after scanning it. It’s possible to instantly look for reviews or compare prices with this handy little application. Most products today contain additional information which people can get with the help of a barcode.

Downloading applications, particularly in Android, is much easier thanks to QR Codes. These codes can contain information, URLs, email addresses or contact information and even reviews about the product or application. Buyers can easily find everything that they need about the item in one place. These codes can also include web addresses which the user will find useful for reference.

Overall, even though there are a couple of kinks here and there (like how it needs a lot of light in order to read properly) the application is still quite useful especially for those who are new to using Android. It’s not exactly as  precise as other shopping applications but it does the job quite well.
