Is the barcode scanning option available for the BB8530 - I keep reading mixed messages and am asking for any clarification. .
If it does work -- do I need an app? How does one scan a barcode from the Internet, magazine or from a fellow BBM?
Thank you for your time

It depends on the type of barcode.
A QR Code barcode generated by BlackBerry Messenger can be scanned using the device's camera to add BBM contacts, join groups or even load software (see Mobihand.com, when you add an app to the cart to buy, you can scan the barcode from your device to install the app).
If you want to scan other types of barcodes, check out third party apps like Endocrab or ScanLife.
