in version 4.2.0
in Android, it will scan whatever is appeared in front of the phone and return a very strange value.  it's really a serious problem.

hope the outsystems team can fix it. 
in version 4.1.0
Super easy to use. Thank you for your work!
in version 4.1.0
On Android, this barcode scanner scans everything (bricks, walls, jean pants, hair -- you name it) and this is very problematic as it returns many false positives when you intend to scan a real barcode.
