I'm not aware of one, but you can get the Indy version of LC right now for as little as free for the first year, which includes the Android barcode scanner widget.

If the previous answer about the android widget (that uses the back camera of your phone to scan barcodes) is not enough :

-few android terminal have built-in barcode scanner. and those equipment emulates the android keyboard.
therefore, livecode is able to "catch" the data scanned by using a simple text field or native field.

-other systems : the saveo solution for instance : it's an external barcode scanner, that connects to... a regular smartphone. and here again, the scanner "emulates" an android keyboard. so Livecode can work with this.

The Android Barcode scanner Widget is not usable in darker areas, therefore we need to get an option to turn on the light.

Great news!
The flashlight will be added in lc9.6.0rc1 to use with the barcode scanner widget.
