Barcode Scanner Android App is awesome ! It allows you to scan most product bar codes in 1D(UPC, EAN, etc.) and 2D formats (QR Code) to search Google for product results. You can even search for words in a book when using this app (results are populated if the book is available on http://books.google.com).
The cool thing about scanning QR Codes is the wealth of information and many applicable uses in the tiny cryptic messages. QR Codes can store calendar events, contact information, email addresses, Geo location, phone numbers, SMS text messages, plain text, and URLs. Androiddevelopmenttalk.com has enabled QR Codes to every Android App Review, so you can quickly download the app from the Android Market.
