Barcode Scanner/Reader

Wirelessly posted (Sprint/1.0/HTC_Touch_Pro2_T7380 Opera/9.50 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en))

Anyone use a barcode scanner on the TP2? I believe there are a few different apps (I've seen for the TP1), but not sure how well they work on the TP2.

Re: Barcode Scanner

How about QuickMark? Anyone try that? Apparently the advanced version has the desired capabilities. http://www.quickmark.com.tw/En/basic...HTC_Touch_Pro2

EDIT: Came across another app - I-Nigma. Anyone try that?

EDIT #2: I found another program that seems to work well with 1D barcodes - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...55#post3606355

Re: Barcode Scanner

Okay, so I tested a few scanners.

It seems the Microsoft Tag Reader is for its own specific tags. It doesn't read UPC 1D or Matrx 2D codes. It opens the link in Opera (if you disable us IE). I believe it has multiple purposes as well (vCard, product info, links, etc...).

Here is a sample Microsoft Tag (try it):


I-Nigma (latest version 3.01.08, which I downloaded free from their site, is attached here. There is an old version 1.40 available on freewareppc.com which also works - I tested it). I-Nigma works great on 2D codes. Automatically recognizes the codes.

Here are 3 sample 2D codes you can try with I-Nigma (firs is QR code, 2nd is Semacode, 3rd is DataMatrix.):



I also tried the BarcodeZilla. This does read UPC barcodes ( you need a steady hand!!). I tried it on a box of Cheerios, and a pack of AAA batteries. It is tempermental, but works. It shows the UPC code, and item, and it seems like a selling price on ebay? Kinda vague. There is also an option to browse on the internet using the code. I recommend using the Lite version. It accesses the internet instead of catalogs inventory (if you want to catalog your books, etc...). This program seems good if it wasn't so sensitive. I have to have such a steady hand, and there is a capture botton (last 2 programs automatically recognized the barcodes).

All these codes were found on Wikipedia.

Re: Barcode Scanner

I use QuickMark and did pay for the advance capabilities. It will read 1D barcodes and then search on google or whatever you set up. I like it and it works well. They also sent me this tiny magnifier that sticks to the phone over the lens so you can get better pics of the barcode. Haven't needed it, but it's cute.

How well does it read the UPC 1D bar codes? What info does it give you? Where does it send you when searching on the net? How accurate & sensitive is the camera? Does it pick it up immediately like the 2D readers? Does it use the cameras autofocus/zoom feature?

I think that mini magnifying glass is really meant for the iPhone (It look nice with a bedazzled iPhone, lol!)

P.S. I-Nigma isn't reading the barcode in your sig. What is it?
