Android app that can scan barcodes and produce a list of ISBNs?

This is more "physical book management," so if this is the wrong section sorry.

I've been using Calibre to catalog my physical books. For now, I've just been carrying over a pile of books to my desk and manually typing in the ISBNs. Painfully slow process.

I just realized that I have an Android phone, so I could probably just use that to scan the barcodes and get a list of ISBNs. Then either I dump them into Add from ISBN or use the Import List plugin.

Does anybody have a suggestion for an app that can do this? Preferably free.

I tried Book Catalogue which is GPL and free (see https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....bookcatalogue ) and it seems to work quite nicely.

After testing a lot of different things, I have settled on Alfa ISBN Scanner. It's a little barebones but it produces a text list of ISBNs which you can email to yourself or dump in Dropbox/GDrive/OneDrive/etc.
