A New Barcode Reader for iOS from Accusoft
Accusoft, a company that provides imaging, content and document solutions, has come out with a barcode reader for iPads, iPhones and other iOS devices.
The Accusoft Barcode Scanner for iOS will enable users to read QR codes, UPC, DataMatrix, PDF417, and other types of barcodes. In other words, this will help you get an all-in-one scanner to be able to decipher any kind of barcode.
For those who do not know, QR codes might be the most popular form of barcode, but it is not the only one. There are lesser known and used barcodes that you could find. Because these barcodes are not that widely used, it makes no sense whatsoever to install a code scanning app that you will only get to use once, or perhaps never use at all. With Accusoft’s new mobile app, you can have a scanner for most existing barcodes.
The company has earlier released an Android version of the app.
Accusoft’s director of recognition, Tom Setzer, claims that this is the fastest and most accurate barcode reader available in the market today. You can get it for free on the iTunes Store and on Google Play.
