The Latest in Barcode Scanning Apps

If you think you’ve heard of all the uses for barcodes, think again. Barcode Kanojo, an iPhone app, allows users to scan any 1D barcode from any product and generates a “collectable cutie.” Kanojo, in Japanese, is literally refering to a female in the 3rd person, but can also mean girlfriend. By scanning a barcode, a new girl, or Kanojo, is created. The game aspect is introduced by getting points for looking after the Kanojo, finding another or even stealing one from another user! It’s almost as if barcode apps meet Tamagotchi!

What do you think about Barcode Kanojo? Personally, I think it would be better if you could choose to create a girl, boy or animal, but that’s just me. Let us know what you think, or tell us about your experience with this barcode app by commenting here, or on our Facebook or Twitter pages.
