    I am not clear on what you are wanting to download. I use the bar code app by scanning a bar code with my camera then oh.....I get your question, The app I use pops up two choices to search for a product. I have most luck with the web search choice. The app I use has a pic of an actual barcode and has the word barcode in the title.

    I didnt dowload it either... I dont think. I swear it was already there on my Droid. I did download Shopsavvy but it wont scan the square app codes. You sure its not on yours already?

    Just search for "barcode scanner" in the market and its the second result.

    No its not there by default... Open the market app. click the search button and type in "barcode scanner" The one you want is made by ZXing Team and has an icon of a barcode with a red stripe across it. Its a free app... Install that and you'll be golden... Just use that app.
