Scanner is a small but quite useful program with which your smartphone will be able to recognize linear barcodes and two-dimensional QR codes, and then provide you with the information contained therein. For example, with this application, you can learn more details about a particular product, its manufacturer, importer, composition, way of use, you can read reviews about its quality, and much more.

Fields of application

If you are not interested in any products, you can use the program to jump to certain web-resources, to save a contact in the address book of your smartphone, to send text messages, collect data on the geographical coordinates, and a lot more of what might be helpful. Today, QR codes are so widespread that many venues use them for transmitting information about planned events or promotions, provide an option to download certain content or to be on an interesting portal dedicated to a specific topic.
It got to the point that in Austria and Japan (the latter, by the way, is the birthplace of QR- codes) the information about deceased in the cemeteries is now also represented in the form of QR-codes. Every day users of such programs grow in number and it only proves that this method of transmitting information becomes really popular. In addition, it is really convenient because a small plate can place information in alphanumeric format of volume larger than 4200 characters. It's a whole essay which can be read only by those who has at their disposal a smartphone that supports reading QR codes.
On the Internet today, there are even real services that help translate text in QR codes. Imagine, if we start to leave notes in this format soon. If only we could implement the feature according to which the program's algorithm creating codes, allowed to read some of them only a certain number of persons logged in the program at a specific password, then we could correspond back and forth both openly and secretly at the same time. However, the program today has already quite popular features and can be useful to each of us.

Resume

Using the applicationIt is very easy to use it. Start the program, and in a second you can bring the smartphone with camera side to a QR code, and when the program finishes reading the information, it will notify you with a beep and a button in the form of a barcode will appear on the screen, by clicking on which you can perform the task hidden in the code (open the browser, address book, maps, and so on). The program settings allow you to enable LED flash camera, to designate the active zone of the camera with a frame, to turn on the location services and activate live tiles that can be placed on the main screen of your smartphone. In the lower left corner of the screen there is a small touch button allowing you to look through the entire history of scanned codes.
