Barcode reader apps are getting smarter, so bars in smart bars are getting smart too.
The Barcode Reader app is getting smarter as well.
As reported by The Verge, the app is adding a barcode scanner which will scan the barcode to display it on the app’s page.
It also includes a feature called barcode scanning, which will automatically detect the bar code of a bar that’s in a smart bar and scan it to display its contents.
This will be especially useful if a bar in a bar code scanner is located in a crowded place.
Barcode scanning is currently only available for iOS devices, but The Verge claims that it’s getting a release on the Android platform soon.
