UpCode - Free barcode reader for Symbian S60

UpCode - Free barcode reader for Symbian S60UpCode is one of the best free mobile barcode readers available for Symbian S60 3rd edition mobile phones as we expect the barcode reader will be available for S60 5th edition soon. If you are not familiar with mobile barcodes, they are graphical barcode like representations of URL addresses for easy access. Instead of typing the whole URL you just point your camera to the barcode and your phone browser is automatically redirected to the designated address. These barcodes, today can be found all around the net, for example our partner site SymbianThemes.us is using it to provide easy download links for the themes directly to your mobile phone.

We have tested a few mobile barcode readers, to be exact all of the free barcode readers available for Nokia N96. We found UpCode Reader to be the best choice when it comes to mobile barcodes. We have tested it on few barcodes and it works perfectly. UpCode Reader is available for all Symbian S60 3rd edition mobile phones, the interface is very simple and as you can see from the screenshot on the right, there is no philosophy in using this application, just open it point it to the barcode and you will be redirected to the URL.

Here is an example of a mobile barcode:

Hugo Boss Shirt Barcode testOn the other hand after playing for a while with UpCode Barcode Reader around the house I found it not only reads mobile barcodes for URL addresses but it also has a good recognizing ability when it comes to all different barcodes found arround.

On the image on the right you can see a barcode on the shirt label, I was always wandering what it meant and I did not expect that UpCode installed on my Nokia N96 phone will be able to read this thing but I decided to give it a try.

After few seconds trying to focus on the barcode ( I note that this is due to the low light conditions, UpCode Reader tries to find the barcode image in the whole frame of the camera and you don't have to move your phone camera around much) I got the bar code contents. It was the number code next to the barcode on the image.

UpCode Reader for Symbian S60 3rd edition can be quite useful when it comes to barcodes in shops and other places where barcodes are used. Missing price tags can be easily resolved using UpCode.

It is known that money can make people autonomous. But what to do when one doesn't have cash? The one way is to get the credit loans and commercial loan.
