Up until now barcodes have only really been used for retail purposes, to catalogue products or identify and monitor stocks. Things are changing though, and with the advent of so-called 'semacode' barcodes are going to open up a whole new world of possibilities. The way things are going it looks like they are set to spark a new communication and marketing revolution via mobile devices.
It sounds a bit Orwellian, but in the future we will probably all have our own personal barcode with all our personal information stored on it, which we can send to other people or businesses via digital technology. What's more, we'll be able to use our phones to scan products and pay for them automatically, a craze which is already big in Taiwan.
QuickMark is a barcode decoder that opens up this world of opportunity on your Pocket PC. It uses your device's camera to capture barcodes then decodes the semacode to decipher its contents. Considering it's possibilities it's incredibly simple to use. You just run the program, place the semacode in front of your camera and shoot. The app will then automatically unscramble the information locked in this coded format.
If you want to become an early adopter of the powerful semacode technology then get hold of QuickMark and give it a try.
