Could you rename the app or something so g play does not recognize this as the normal zx ing barcode scanner?
No, sorry, I won't do that. It IS ZXing application and I won't make any changes to "re-identify" it differently.
I don't really understand why do you have to update it.
I have switched off all the automatic updates (and notifications) on my phone. Consumes less battery and it is much less annoying
Doing updates when I think I want to do that (in a controlled way) is much more safe and comfortable IMHO.
In addition, anyone who upgrades ICS to a newer version (whenever ICS camera gets completely fixed) can update the application in a native way instead of uninstalling, reinstalling, reconfiguring...
