San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
Scandit, a leader in mobile product interaction, announced today that its best-in-class mobile barcode scanner, Scandit SDK, is now available free-of-charge to developers of mobile consumer apps. The new, ad-supported price plan lets customers equip their mobile apps with the fastest and most reliable barcode scanner at no cost.
"Our free price plan gives developers with limited budgets access to the most advanced barcode scanning technology available to date," says Scandit CEO Samuel Mueller. “This means our leading technology can be adopted by even more mobile apps to make barcode scanning faster and easier for more end users. And with the integrated ScanAd framework, we will provide developers with an easy mechanism to monetize their apps.”
Developers can sign up at http://www.scandit.com to integrate the Scandit barcode scanning technology into their own mobile apps in just a few simple steps. The Scandit ScanAd(TM) framework will display ad content relevant to the products scanned by the user. The advertising is designed to appear as additional content and to offer real added value in conjunction with the features of the app to end users. Examples include coupons and special offers related to the scanned product, a consumer’s product interests and location.
The Scandit Software Development Kit (SDK), which is available for all major mobile platforms, provides best-in-class barcode scanning for mobile apps. Due to its advanced image processing technology, the Scandit SDK is immune to factors that commonly affect mobile scanning performance, including lighting and shadows, product packaging and barcode size, color and orientation. It also features groundbreaking barcode orientation detection to let users scan barcodes with ease at any angle.
Interested developers are invited to contact Scandit at info(at)scandit(dot)com and to download the Scandit SDK from http://www.scandit.com free of charge.
