    I need an application that will 'scan' a barcode with the device camera and 'type' the numbers into an application - like a keyboard.

    That's all - the same basic functionality as the cheapest barcode scanner plugged into a laptop.

    Is there an application to do this (or a tweak that enables me to do it in a more powerful application) please?

    What brand, model and Android version phone do you run, mike?

    Most smartphones have a stock Barcode Scanner pre-loaded that does what you ask.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I may get a Wildfire S with 'Gingerbread'/2.3.

    Ideally, I would be able to paste, or otherwise insert the data into an active field in a .pdf form.

    Is this possible?
