Curious that the app creation and mod dates are both Oct. 5 - four months ago.

Bar code printing is not simple.  The GS1 standard (UPC, GS1 128, GS1-DataBar GS1 DataMatrix calls for a a ISO grade C or above for barcode, which involves x dimension, edge reflectance etc.

Most retailers grocers distributors and now hospitals require in their contracts that their suppliers follow the GS1 standard in their barcodes.  If the barcodes do not scan at checkout or bedside then a not so friendly conversation occurrs between the supplier and the user about breach of contract and consideration.


i have not tried this one, but before this i used another resource about barcode generator tool to create qr code, ean barcode, upc-a,upc-e,isbn barcode etc

I agree with prl53 above about it being way over priced. There are a number of much more competitively priced products, including my very own Barcode Basics for under $10. Shop around, folks!
