Re: Barcode Scanner on Play or FDroid

Funny, I happen to have a Symbol (Motorola) barcode scanner normally seen at POS units and so on. It seems to handle barcodes more readily than the Android Barcode Scanner. Pull the trigger, and it usually gets it in under a second as long as it has a reasonable line of sight to the target, doesn't even have to wait to focus. Plus unlike the Android scanner, it seems to comprehend light-on-dark barcodes as easily as the standard dark-on-light.
