Hi all. Hopefully this will be ok to post, I'll keep it short. I'm considering purchasing a portable bar code scanner. However, I in theory already have this on my phone, using digit-eyes, red laser and I forget the other one that i use. My point is, one of the reasons for the purchase would be the viewing area of the omnidirectional scanner. i find myself having a very difficult time showing the camera to the barcode on almost anything with the phone. The viewing area of a larger window does seem to help a lot. I'm not discounting the apps, clearly this is my error. Can anyone at all tell me if they would purchase a scanner even though they have the above apps, or reasons what i might do to improve my accuracy? Thanks all.
