Ultimate code scanner - Barcode just released
July 23, 2012 in Utilities
[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - The ProCamera Team at Cocologics is pleased to release Barcode 1.0, the ultimate code scanner app for iPhone/iPad. It can scan, parse the contents of codes then offer actions depending on the contents. Unlike competing apps, this scanner can scan all common kinds of codes from the well-known QR codes and all sorts of EAN codes, to Data Matrix codes! It's one of the fastest and most precise code scanners in the App Store. It also enables use of the built-in flash light (iPhone 4 + 4S) when scanning.
Users can use it for pure recognition, for price comparison with Amazon, or instantly browse the web for the scanned information. Users can also use its ability to directly apply the contents of any code they scan: they can add events to calendars, vCard information to address books, or open maps to the right locations - all with just one touch. And that's only the beginning. Users can also easily share the scan results on Twitter or Facebook.
