It's Now Extremely Simple to Build Your Own Barcode Scanner App. As customers, we seldom consider barcodes anything over the arrangement of lines and spaces on the things we convey to the checkout counter. At most, maybe we take note of how much speedier and more effective it is to buy a thing with a barcode than without.
India, October 29, 2018: A barcode is nothing but an optical representation of data readable by machines. The barcode is usually placed on an object and the data usually describes something about the object. A QR code is simply a 2D barcode which can carry more information than a regular barcode.
Barcodes have been in use for many years now especially in retail outlets for inventory management and checkout.
In the past few years, the ubiquity of smartphones has made QR codes extremely popular. QR codes have now become the link between the physical product (or an offline advertisement) and a world of online information about the product. This includes the product website, videos explaining/advertising the product, and much more. Since QR codes have become so commonly used, there have emerged QR code/barcode scanner apps for both Android and iOS. Gone are the days when only bulky bar code reading devices were able to read the information on a bar code.
Petro Tello, Head of Sales at the Mobile App Maker said, "Technology innovation has gone so far that even something as complex as a QR code and barcode scanning app can now be created by somebody who has no knowledge of computer programming. You only need to find the right app making software which has the tools you need. Users can use the barcode scanner app to scan any QR codes, whether they are on their favourite products or on a banner advertisement."
While QR codes have emerged as a very useful tool for customers of a physical product gain information about it online, the use of QR code has been somewhat limited because not everyone has a QR code/barcode scanner app on their phone. With the emergence of new online software that makes it easy for laymen to create a barcode scanner, there is a good chance that the usage of QR codes will become more widespread among both consumers and companies.
