Improve Barcode Plugin's barcode recognition on Android

The Barcode Plugin that uses the Cszbar library is causing issues on Android where the scanner returns a scan result from any random object that does not contain a barcode.  These objects can include bricks, clothes, tables, skin etc.  There seem to be many objects that can be scanned regardless of pattern existing on them.

This has many implications for the users of our products who rely on scanning serial numbers on equipment pieces inside buildings.  Many false positives are returned, which are captured and stored as "correct" data for the user without the user realizing the mistake.
