    Very slow to read codes. Takes such a long time just to focus. I had an easier time scanning the gd pavement over the actual code. I have to scan codes to work and I hate how they force me to use this app over the better ones. So much so I rather open a better scanning app then use it's results in my work app. Much faster to go between apps vs use this one that is tied to the work app. It is that slow and agonizing. Fix the focus speed and reading speed.

    "Was" but no longer "Is". As another reviewer found, this is not compatible with Android 11. It works perfectly on all previous versions but the camera view only shows a small area of the upper left of the window. I have not tested on iOS but some blogs are stating that it doesn't work for newer versions on the Apple side. I lost 2 weeks of development time before I confirmed the issue with 11 and will have to find and refector a new barcode reader into my phone app.

    This is the only bar code scanner you need. No ads, no malware, no tracking, just a highly functional barcode scanner.

    I've used this scanner for the Movie Collection app, but the scanner no longer works properly WITH that app, when previously, or worked perfectly. I keep getting "Previous version, check for updates, contact app owner" and there's nothing to update, nothing to do.

    I've used this app for years and it has worked great. Now it won't send history anymore. I get an error every time I try regardless of how i try to sending it.

    Cannot send History as attachments anymore. Getting an error message, "unable to add attachment" from all email clients I try. Use to work great and no won't. Very disappointed.

    Do NOT install! This app contains malware that causes browser redirects on phone unlocking. Thankfully MalwareBytes found that this app was the culprit.

    This app is what I consider the original, tried, and true barcode scanner. I remember using it on my LG Optimus back on Android 2, and it was beautiful. On every Android phone I've owned, this was one of the essential apps to get. Today, it works just as it used to, but with the modernization that all phones and Android updates provide. Thanks for keeping it up to date all these years.
