Ubiquitous in our modern society yet hardly at the forefront of our conscious minds, the bar code has remained both indispensable and often ignored. That is, until recently.
Enter CodeScanner for the Apple iPhone, a new application developed by Osaka-based feedtailor Inc. and released for download on June 4th, 2010. CodeScanner can be used to consecutively scan one and two dimensional codes, including standard barcodes and QR-codes, directly into the iPhone where they are processed and used to access information from the web.
While CodeScanner is not the first code reading application to be released for the iPhone, it includes a number of innovations that allow for fast, efficient scanning of items for information. Codes are read consecutively in real-time, without stopping to take a picture, while also simultaneously being entered into the application where pertinent data can be accessed.
CodeScanner also comes equipped with various plugins, such as The Amazon plugin that allows users to scan items and check prices online at Amazon.com in real-time, a feature that could be useful for price comparisons while shopping.
The CodeScanner application is currently available for download from the iTunes App Store for $1.99.
