Anyone Using the Barcode Scanner (ZXing)Support

    I am trying to use the Barcode Scanner by ZXing Team and just can't seem to get it to scan. The camera doesn't focus that well up close. App itself runs fine and the viewfinder comes up to scan, but it just never seems to catch it (on traditional, old-school 2d barcodes, haven't tried QR codes or whatever).

    most bar code scanners need an autofocusing camera the prevail is fixed focus.

    Ten-four on that guys...thanks!

    I actually skimmed RIGHT past the "Red Laser" post earlier not thinking. I'll give that a shot for sure.

    Tried all the others, they can only do QR codes. Tried Red Laser, and it couldn't scan barcodes either. And when I entered a UPC code manually, it came back with the wrong book.

    Guess I don't need barcodes that badly, although something to help me track my book collection would be great.

    Sorry to hear, for me Red Laser works perfectly on all barcodes. Lighting has to be good and I need a little patience on Red Laser, but it always scans.

    I want to refresh the screen just after I have results of scanning (for example after 3 seconds).I don't want to have to press the back button in case to refresh the screen and scan again.
    can you please help me?
    thank you

    I hope by now you have found your answer but in case you have not here goes.

    You download it on your pc google it. Then transfer it to your sdcard and install it with a file manager, astro, myfiles, what ever you have.

    I stuck a cheap plastic lens between my phone and its silicone case and was able to focus on barcodes in the 3-6" range. I think the lens came out of a disposable camera.
