Reviews From google play store

I don't need this Microsoft. If you want to replace an industry standard with something new, you're supposed to offer an experience that is superior to what is currently available. Take a look at what Apple and Google are doing to your products for example. This app barely scanned the code and when it did it penned an in app browser which could not play the linked video. The sad thing was I took a picture of the code and Google goggles took me to the app to start with. Now that was impressive. What followed needs work.

Great App - Super Fast Super fast scanner. Figures out the tag even before the camera finishes focusing! Displays relevant info quickly and with a nice layout. Much better than the other two similar apps I've used. Works great on Motorola Razr Maxx.

Useless I got some flooring samples from Lowes amd they advertised this app next to the MS tag. The tag pulls up an error saying there is no information for the tag. What good is this app if it doesnt even work for the tags that advertise it?

Bad App I read other comments and tried it anyway. I'm using a Droid Razr Maxx and as other people have reported, this app doesn't give the camera time to focus or even scan the whole tag or code. I have used several QR Code and barcode scanners and thought the Microsoft Tag might be useful but this scanner totally fails.

Doesnt work I have an S4 and it will not focus to scan. I can take regular pics so I know it is not a fault with the camera. I've tried several times to scan but it just keeps saying scanning and never works.

Great I have tried many scanners and i must say that this is the fastest working one for my android gingerbread. Others can take 5mins for a scan and keeps telling you to stay still or reilign.. this one was so fast. I have to say it is the best out there for snap it codes.

Ummmm...not working :-( I just downloaded the app and have been attempting to scan for the last 10 minutes. It's been attempting to focus in all that time. Do I uninstall and reinstall or just forget about it? Fail.

Asks for too much information There is just plain some information that is not necessary for the basic functions of this app and is clearly an effort to collect metadata. MS, you already have enough information through your email service, just make your dang tags possible to be read by other apps easily and stop the shenanigans, please. This is ridiculous.

Epic fail Keeps saying hold steady. You can't hold a phone that steady without a prop. Never reads a thing... UNINSTALL!! The scan button needs to be showing after 5 seconds or less regardless. But you can't hold it steady and hit a button on the screen anyway!

Junk now It used to work, but no more. Don't waste your time. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Same back and forth zoom in and out. It says it fixed a bug? Really? Now it has a BIG BUG. Doesn't work, at all.

Don't Bother to Install Endlessly cycles through focus/ out-of-focus and never scans the tag. Useless. It didn't work on my Motorola Bionic either. Although it says that it will read NFC, I can't find any way to do so. Most comments say it doesn't work as well. The website indicates that the product was abandoned in 2013 in typical Microsoft fashion. Don't bother to install; I'm deleting this worthless app as soon as I post this review. Be sure to re-rate the app before you delete it.

Seems to work well on some tags On a Nexus 5 os 5.1 Was able to open a Microsoft tag easily. Had s little trouble at first with a qr code. Stuttered. Opened to the right website but it was blank. The second try it got through no problem. Does not appear to read upc type barcodes. Would not focus. But I am not sure it is supposed to although I thought the ten barcode applied to the one dementional type.

First scan failed with 'tag not available', then the app crashed causing my phone to lock up. Using a Samsung Galaxy S4. Uninstalled immediately.

Too Many Permissions Being allowed to send text messages, take pictures and video, or gain access to accounts on my device.. is going too far.. I'm deleting all apps that do this now. Used to love this app. Sad to have to uninstall.

Microsoft tag reader The reader on my galaxy s2 tries to take me to the link as soon as the reader notices the tag. The camera doesn't even have time to focus and the reader thinks it knows where to go. Naturally it doesn't take me anywhere! This is a big bug

Impressed HTC EVO 4G LTE After reading multiple negative reviews I wasn't expecting much. Just used this for the first time literally 3 minutes ago. The tag wasn't focused AT ALL, as I was still moving my phone to center it and it scanned anyway. In less than 10 seconds the app opened up the content of what I was scanning. I rarely leave reviews for apps, and don't know, realistically, how often I'll use this one (I was scanning for a chance to win a Movado watch in a fashion mag) but if something works, I'll put in my 2 cents.

Does not work As of 3/13/15 it does not appear to work on my LG g2. After tapping "scan", the camera loads and I can see clearly. But it keeps moving the focus and never actually scans.

Disappointing This application has ads. Why would Microsoft need to ad support a reader for their own technology!?

Why is everyone complaining? It works, if you can't get it to work, you're kinda sorta really incompetent. Love the app, better than the alternative from god knows where.

It's fast but higly risky Microsoft Tag works very fast and very accurately (Galaxy S3, LTE version) within a fraction of a second! BUT the app right away launches the webbrowser WITHOUT USER-REVIEW NOR ASKING FOR PERMISSION to the scanned/encoded web address, opening your phone to all sorts of malicious intents! (a big security snafu!) - NOT Recommend until this "automatic" behavior has stopped, allowing the user review the webaddress FIRST, before visiting it (like other barcode scanner apps do). I gave stars for speed/accuracy.
