A new application form AT&T has landed called the AT&T Code Scanner. The app is available right now for download on Blackberry devices and on the Android Marketplace.
The app lets the smartphone user scan both 2D barcodes and 1D barcodes that are printed in magazines, online, and other places to get more information on a product or service. The application also has a barcode generator that allows the user or a business to generate their own bar codes.
These codes can be read by devices with the code Scanner application. The person generating the barcode can make custom bar codes that are linked to multiple data types. The codes can link the scanner to things like Facebook pages or to company websites.
