ScanLife

This scanning application uses the camera in your iPhone as a link from products to websites. With this application, you can scan a ScanLife EZcode and be directed to a website. Doesn’t work with UPC codes though, it is meant only for codes created at the ScanLife website.

So what is the point of all this. It lets marketers put the EZcode on their products, and send mobile iPhone users to the company website. So for example lets say you buy a magazine and you want to check out the website, or you buy a plane ticket but want to check the arrivial time. There’s no need to search by keyword or type in a long web address. You can go to www.scanlife.com to scan codes right now or create your own codes that link to your social networking site or contact information.

2 Comments to “ScanLife”

  1. I had my friend download the ScanLife application to his iPhone so I could give it a test drive.

    For starters, the application can only read and decipher proprietary EZcodes. Unfortunately the ScanLife application offers no support for 1D UPC/EAN barcodes, or Data Matrix, Aztec, or QR codes. This is the major downfall of the application, since it only supports one proprietary 2D symbology. As a result, ScanLife is not a true universal code reader.

    For those wanting a much more intuitive mobile code reading experience, I highly recommend the NeoReader application from NeoMedia Technologies. The NeoReader is able to read and decipher all common non-proprietary 2D codes (Data Matrix, QR, Aztec) as well as URL embedded 2D codes and all 1D UPC/EAN/Code 128 open source codes. The NeoReader supports direct and indirect code linking, which guarantees maximum interoperability with already existing platforms like 2D Data Matrix Semacodes, and Japanese QR links. This allows the user to click on a variety of barcodes with a single application installed on their mobile device.

    Download the NeoReader and instantly transform your iPhone into a universal code reader.

  2. Isn’t this a repost of an older story?
