Strikodo is an App to scan barcodes and to create those. It supports a large number of barcode types and supports a large variety of content types that can be encoded within these barcodes.
Scanning barcodes can be done using the built-in camera (torch and the different lenses are supported as well), but you can also scan photos for barcodes. The App supports manual scanning but also automatic scanning to scan a large number of barcodes very fast.
Scanned barcodes can be saved within the App, so you can open them anytime later again, edit them, share its content, process its content etc.
Creating barcodes is very intuitive, easy and fast. You just pick the type of barcode you want to create, its type of content and then either enter the content or pick it from other sources (like the Contacts, a Map, etc). The barcode is updated "live" while entering or editing the content, so there're no additional steps required to actually get the resulting barcode.
The App makes it also possible to create barcodes from within other Apps, without leaving these Apps. All that is required would be to use the "Sharing" feature of these other Apps and then pick "Strikodo" from the Sharesheet. This will directly create a barcode from the shared data (for example any text, a web link, a location from the Maps Apps, a contact from the Contacts App, etc.), which then can be saved within Strikodo and shared again.
Depending of the content that is encoded in the barcodes, Strikodo provides a large number of actions you can apply on this content. This can be a simple product search, but also opening a link in a browser, sending E-Mails or messages, making a phone call, show a location on a Map and much more.
The saved barcodes can be also made available on the Apple Watch, so you can have access to these barcodes even if you don't have the iPhone with you. Even the watch is able to execute certain actions based on the content of the barcodes (like making phone calls, sending messages, show a location on a map)
The App respects your privacy. Scanning and creating barcodes happens on the device itself, no data is leaving the device, no internet connection is required. There's no tracking, no ads, no hidden costs, no subscription.
