 On the Google Products page, from an Android device, there is a "scan
barcode" button that launches a 3rd party barcode scanning app, which
returns results back to the browser.

1)  How did they do this?
2)  Is this available for any web developer to do, or a Google ->
Google api only?

 Appreciate the snarkiness but that's not even what I'm asking about!
Nice try though.

 Take a look at the zxing web page.

 http://code.google.com/p/zxing/wiki/ScanningFromWebPages 

Essentially any web developer can do this - but you are probably
relying on the BarcodeScanner app already beibg installed on the
phone. (haven't really tried it out myself)

Best Regards,

1. How can I see all comments on my app?

If I go to the market on my dev phone, I see other comments than when
I go to this website:
http://nl.androlib.com/android.application.nl-wligtenberg-tpw-jwnm.aspx

The only thing I can think of is, that my dev phone only supports the
English language and that the website displays the comments in the
Dutch language.
However, I can read Dutch so I want to view all the comments made on
my app.
Weirder still, I always want to be able to do that, since I can also
read French, German and a bit of Spanish.

It would be nice if it was added to the developer console. View ALL
comments made on your application.

Thanks in advance,

balachmar
