The service enables barcode scanning by mobile phones using built-in cameras without additional hardware. It resolves and validates scanned barcodes in real time, collecting user data for every scan of a code using the service. Hosted services include management of scan metrics and databases created as scans are logged.
API methods support retrieval of XML data from a barcode scan and return of lists of services to be accessed, devices with access, and location where the scan occurred. Methods also allow creation of questionnaires for display in response to barcode scans.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
