Barcode Scanner uses the camera on your Android to scan barcodes on CDs, books, and other products, and look up product information such as prices and reviews, or search for a word in a book and find where it occurs.

It also reads 2D barcodes, called QR Codes, which can contain links to web sites, contact information such as phone numbers and email addresses, map locations, calendar events.

Barcode Scanner is based on the open source ZXing Barcode Library.
