Thanks for taking the time to post @ZoltánTeller i think this deserves a little more heat than it recieved. :3
Not the latest model of android here. I've installed the app: No permission requested by this app except access to camera. All other accesses (not even requested) automatically denied by phone settings, like for any other app. Why is this particular bar code app voted cold?
probably because if you have one of the latest models of android you can scan these within the standard camera app that and the amount of permissions it asks for
Why this particular bar code app is voted cold?

Epson uses piezo print heads which are renowned for blocking. So long as they are used at least once a week they are a lot better than they used to be. If you're still concerned then the canon version is significantly better, their printhead technology is completely different and rarely blocks however the canon printhead generates heat and so cannot be used for any form of sublimation (if you don't know what that is then it's unlikely you'll need that). I need for sublimation so I had no choice.
I have been using this printer for over a year now. No issues yet . But to be honest we print every week. The longest I have not printed for in this printer is 2weeks . You've got me worried now lol
I'm.looking for a new all in one printer with the ink tank system. I'm nervous about going back to an Epson because of the issues around print heads drying up.and clogging as I had with my previous Epson and others are reporting. Are they any better now? I have a HP printer that prints blurred but test prints are perfect.

Mobile Doc Scanner (MDScan) + OCR Temporarily FREE at Google Play StoreFREE£3.99Google Play Deals
"MDScan, or Mobile Doc Scanner for Android, is one of the best I have found." TJ McCue, Senior Contributor, Forbes ( https://www.forbes.com/sites/tjmccue/2020/04/24/no-desktop-scan… Read more
Multi page might be useful but for the rare occasions I use it for docs its not worth the extra app. My photo auto aligns the page if its take at an angle and can auto save to cloud. Thanks for the feed back though. Merry Christmas
Document scanners provide additional functionality beyond simply taking a photo. I can't speak to this software, as I use Microsoft Lens, but some of the features I rely on are: being able to create a multi-page PDF, have the software automatically crop the images so that only the text is displayed, intelligently straighten pages I'm holding at an angle, and automatically upload the documents to cloud storage.
What am I supposed to do with it which i can't with my camera?
This is not why people use document scanners. Try it for yourself.
Aren't replacement HP toner cartridges shockingly expensive? The first ad that I found for a set was > £300
There's the HP M283fdw which is £229 today via Amazon Prime. You can get £10 off when you top up £100 to your Amazon account and a further £100 cashback from HP. That brings it down to £119 for a colour laser, multi function device. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-colour-laserjet-pro-m283fdw-multi-function-printer-ps129-with-cash-back-3560852
Bought a Canon i-Sensys MF643Cdw form Printerbase (colour multifunction laser printer) at the end of August for £226 minus £70 cashback from Canon that I received a few weeks ago. It is £253 with £50 cashback at the moment so that was a good deal for £156
They used to be around £120. But then I didn’t need colour. Now I do need colour. :(
They have been, but covid home working put an end to that (for the time being).

Okay nw cheers, ordered anyway at £19 as needed quite urgent, thank you for the heads up (y)
It was limited time deal, they removed the code. sorry.
Hmm, thanks OP but the discount code isn't showing for me (confused)
So an example, I have my works laptop and personal laptop. I want to use the same keyboard and mouse without having to keep unplugging etc. But you are right in a sense it also acts as a USB hub. The two spare ports I have I use to charge my work phone and USB sticks when I use them.

I may be wrong, but isn't this one of the apps that has been signalled as "dangerous " ? I removed it from my phone and other devices about 6 weeks ago. (shock)
Oh I hear you, thats why I went and checked right away when i seen this thread :S I will certainly be watching when it updates in the future, I'm not shy at leaving reviews on the Playstore either!!
But the manifest lists all of them (it's also listed on the Google Pay page). It's great if they don't request everything straight away, but once you're prompted to enable something and then leave it on...
Yeah but this is "one of the best apps in the Google play market". Must be true if they said so! (annoyed)

FYI by somebody who uses this very tool in his trade almost daily These are great; please don't be put of by the negative reviews. Possibly a bit OTT for DIY use You do need to learn how to read them, and you need to appreciate that you will get false negatives but also you can learn how to spot these easily. Don't expect to slap it on the wall, and as the video would suggest, it to immediately show what is behind the wall; you have to carefully track the position you are going to drill and make note of what the tool is telling you Learn how to use it on a wall where you know what is behind it And above all, it's better than nothing (y)
I own one of these as a gift, its hit and miss as it regularly detects AC where I know for definite there are no wires in the wall! For studs its pretty good and metal work but I wouldn’t go out my way to recommend it.
Need something to detect wires and pipes but starting to think nothing exists! I bought a paxwq 410 on amazon which seems to have good reviews and despite giving it hours of trial and error, the only thing I can reliably detect in walls is studs under the metal detection (it finds the bolts, like you can use a magnet on the wall to find bolts...) I don’t mind paying a good amount because I fancy upping my diy skills (just bought a house) but I think the only reliable methods are to either poke holes in the drywall with an Allen key while the electric is off, or to strip the walls down entirely
Is that your dinner (zombie)
How many times!!! It's called a window not a mirror (cheeky)

Thanks for posting @urban8 and welcome to hotukdeals :) Looks a very good price
What for peeps that can't type in 4 letters into amazon then filter by customer review? Would u like silver service also?
Very limited just a basic engine code scanner but will read off basic engine codes and reset MIL light that's about it If you want to connect to cars module's or do more you need car specific software + interface , some more sophisticated scanners can cost £200 plus but still limited . I have can clip for Renault Multiscan for fiat Opcom for Vauxhall they are rip offs of main dealer software/hardware and Foxwell Nt 650 scanner . Nt 650 is useful can do forced regen , ABS ,Airbag plus few more but nothing like manufacture's software. Also the phone apps inc Torque only work as very basic code scanners. I first got Multiscan (Fiat ) to reset oil depreciated fault code garage could only read fault not reset even with expensive Snapon reader so was main dealer £89 to read FFS . Multiscan read reset only £34 to unlock software had to modify elm 327 though and no you can't reset oil on 1.3 jtd with switch pedal or button presses . OBD2 is only the interface car manufactures use different protocol to communicate with car probably to fleece you for expensive scan/reset Voted hot though as it good deal for this scanner
For this given product, this is the cheapest, hence the ‘deal’. If you have found an alternative with a great deal, feel free to upload and share it with the community... 👌🏼

It was obviously a p!$$ take of all the people that comment on this site.
That makes you over 100 years old and mother in law is 200 years old. What do you eat to stay alive for so long. You shouldn't be working for 75 years you should've had your own business now.
I took onboard all those comments about these been crap so I’ve just ordered one of those x-ray scanners you get in the airport instead, bargain at only £225,000 each. Just need the trailer to carry it around with me now.
Haha, it’s when the buzzer goes off in areas where it shouldn’t! All those piercings! (lol) (lol)

Give them your ups tracking number and tell them to check the delivered date. If they still don't want to do anything ask for a manager. When I called up and asked to speak to a manager they quickly got things sorted for me.
I did install Windows and its key but before returning I partitioned the ssd so there's nothing on it. They arranged a collection and it got picked up by tnt on Friday. Now once they get it at their warehouse, the new replacement should start getting built.
I phoned today and they are refusing to send a replacement saying that the invoice date is past 30 days, But I received the product in hand from the delivery company on the 03/06/20. Anyone got any views on this?
That’s great to hear that they are doing something about it. Unfortunately I emailed them today so let’s see what they gonna say about it. Worse part Is recycled the box and it’s content. Did you install Windows and it’s key? Did you send it back or will do it once you receive the replacement?
I called today and they are going to replace it with another new one. Guess I'll have to wait another 2/3 weeks again :(

When it's done its job, you can then sell it. There are always others in the same boat. You then have digitized photos done well and cheaply.
Not saying otherwise but... How many times will you be using it? Scanner sales have gone down and it will become increasingly difficult for them to sell esp at entry level. If you are digitising tons of photos are high res, then sure they make sense but for most people, a phone or the MFP will be more than enough. It's all about use cases. Once you will have digitised all your photos, it will be just another item on your desk that you won't need.
Standalone scanners might not make sense for you, but they obviously have a role to play for some folk, as evidenced here. I'll be buying one myself in a few months, have loads of shots to digitise.
The Google Scan app* works brilliantly and is free. Instructions here including how to add the shortcut to your home screen: https://support.google.com/drive/answer/3145835?co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&hl=en Any paperwork we receive immediately gets scanned and automatically uploaded to google drive and the original either shredded/recycled or archived. Business receipts go straight into Receiptbank then over to Xero. We're practically paperless. I too have the ScanSnap S1300i for large documents but it very rarely gets used. (*There are many other Android and IoS alternatives - CamScanner, Microsoft Scane, Adobe scan, etc)
Will it scan multiple sheets onto the same scan? Or is it all indiviually processed?
Can't your phone do a similar job than this
Excellent price, especially if you want to put it in your laptop bag. Doesn't look like it has a document feeder, so if you want to scan multiple documents, then it could be a pain. I use a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i, very convenient but costs a lot more than this one.
Is it any good? It does not have a document feeder?
