Barcode Box is a “toy” application I wrote a few weeks back, at the start of my UROP. It’s a toy in the sense that I wrote it as a means to figure out Android development – I hadn’t expected so many people to find it useful. A fair amount of positive feedback and suggestions were received and so earlier this week I implemented a few of them.
- Scan barcodes in to a notepad style list
- Add annotations to scanned barcodes
- Launch the appropriate application for URI barcodes (i.e. web addresses open in the browser, market links open in the market)
- Share scanned barcodes by regenerating the barcode on screen for others to scan
- Create barcodes from user entered data
New in 1.1/1.1.1 (1.1.1 is a bugfix)
- Export barcodes to CSV on microSD card, including notes
- Export barcodes as CSV by email, including notes
- Rapid scanning mode – no confirmation after each scan, just keep scanning and press back when done
- Annotations show below the barcode data in the list view
- User interface improvements
Unfortunately due to a loss of signing keys, version 1.1 and 1.1.1 had to be released as a new application under the name “Barcode Box 2”.
