As far as the hardware supporting this scanning software is concerned, the latest version of Android devices support the ZXing Android Barcode Scanner app well. This makes the device convenient for users, as they need not carry any extra device along with the app, which is just a scanner, and the Android operating system. All the basic functions of this barcode scanner app are easy to operate on most phones. As far as the special effects are concerned, the Android interface, which has very few graphical elements, is smooth to use on all devices.
To integrate barcode scanning with ZXing Project, all that is needed is a barcode reader, which is capable of decoding the coded patterns into the relevant information. For this to happen, the user needs to launch the ZXing Project from the Android Market. From there, one can choose to either forgo the option to connect through a Bluetooth connection, and simply use the device without any extra hardware. If one chooses to integrate barcode scanning with ZXing Project through the use of an intent, this action can be performed from any device and does not require networking or the downloading of any additional software.
