    Hello friend,

    Firstly, you require an active data connection or a WiFi connection.
    Barcode Scanner is currently the best and the most downloaded barcode app in the market.
    You can download it just by clicking on the link here.
    Remember, download apps only from the Play Store. Other such sites may contain malicious softwares which may harm your device.

    After installed, open the app.
    You require an internet connection even after you download the app because the data is collected through the web.
    After you run the app, a camera like screen will appear.
    Just place your camera lens over the barcode as if you are taking a photo of it.
    Make sure that the whole barcode fits on your screen and no part is cut out.
    In this way, you can scan barcodes to check prices and info.
    You can even scan QR codes or Data matrices from newspapers. They contain URL links which will open the encoded web page.

    Regards!

    Hey

    Open the app . Its just like a camera and it will use your camera to read the barcode.

    Just point your camera towards the bar code and it should automatically read it else just click the camera button to read the code.

    After it read the code it will show you the result in the screen.

    else try google googles its a nice app as well

    Thanks
