    It seems Microsoft has come out with a scanner for android for free that they've previously made available on the iphone. Called Tag.

    Microsoft Gives Android the Free Barcode-Reading Tag App - Microsoft tag android - Gizmodo

    I found it in the marketplace but it doesn't work on my Eris. I downloaded it and opened it but couldn't get it to scan any of the barcodes or QR codes I tried whereas my Barcode Scanner app picked them up easily. The is started freezing, doing nothing. I uninstalled and then reinstalled and all I got was force closes after that. Maybe it is not compatible with 1.5 although it was in the marketplace. Has anyone else tried it successfully? I guess I will stick with Barcode Scanner, not sure if Tag does anything different or better than that anyway although the article said it has an advanced way of reading.

    ok thanks I will try again.

    hmm...still getting force close. Maybe i have an app that conflicts with it...like BarCode Scanner ;) ah well. Probably not anything more than the regular scanner apps have anyway.

    Its not a regular scanner app. Its made for micrsoft tags. They kind of work the same way bug you cant use tag on a standard barcode..
