    I can see some uses for it. Instead of sending pics, videos,and such. One could send his image. Then if the spouse of the receiver(or cops) would only see this instead of the content. I didn't watch the show mentioned. So it may have been covered.

    I would personally like to be able to do text documents and such too. Just doing text messages and websites is kinda boring after the third time you do it....

    I wasn't sure what it did till you asked! I created a test one, and indeed, it will dial the number. But it first "Confirm Dial 574-265-xxxx?" first, then calls. I can see that one being useful on a business card...

    I figured that would happen. it would be cool to eliminate that confirm screen. be quicker to hit a speed dial.

    OK! So I did a little research, and now I find this totally kicks ass. I only found one place, so hope the link isn't violating any policies. Head over to http://mobilecodes.nokia.com/index.htm From here, you can make text documents, unlike the scanlife. You'll also need a REAL interface, which I found the best one at www.i-nigma.com, and get the reader. You can scan datamatrix, AND quick response 2d barcodes. Now I find this useful :)

    Cool finds. I wish I could actually find places around that use them, so this could be used more in reality, rather than just my tinkering...

    Supports only a few symbologies on purpose

    I think the story is that Scanbuy is interested in limiting confusion and proliferation among users and is therefore supporting a limited number of symbologies. I think it COULD support other symbologies but it chooses not to in order to avoid confusion occurring in Europe.

    FYI, if you are interested in checking out some potential use cases and practice your scanning, check out http://mobilebarcodesrock.blogspot.com/

    I've been trying to get the app to scan the other two types of EZcodes, data matrix and QR. Has anyone had any luck with these?

    The i-nigma scanner that I told you about in the last page of posts scans these. And no, it won't read FedEx, because theirs is proprietary to FedEx.
