A new Android app!

Yes, I did say I wasn't going to write any more Android apps, but there's a really good reason this time :)

At work a couple of weeks ago two of my co-workers were inventorying a large quantity of stock that had just arrived. They were hoping to scan the barcodes for each item into a simple CSV file. Their first though was obviously "there's an app for that". Turns out there wasn't. There are hundreds of barcode-scanning and inventory apps available, but none that simple scanned to a CSV list of barcodes, then allowed that CSV data to be emailed/saved etc.

So yesterday, after 4 hours work, I can now say there is such an app. Stock Scanner isn't pretty, nor feature-packed, but it exactly fulfils the above requirement.

Stock Scanner is available in a limited-scans free version, or a very cheap paid version, on the Android market Google Play.


  1. Their first though was obviously Dan Walsh "there's an app for that". Turns out there wasn't.

  2. How can the miss the only app of its kind for Android, Small Call? Hands down, Small Call is the best utility app for Android introduced this year. Seriously, do you have to pay to get on this list? To get more info please visit
