Appcelerator Webinar: Using a Barcode Scanner to Expand Your App on Titanium

Several months ago we announced the release of our Appcelerator barcode scanner module, which makes it quick and easy for developers to add a barcode scanner to their app. More recently we took a technical look at how developers can get started with the module, and today we’d like to share a recent Appcelerator webinar delivered by our CTO and co-founder Christian Floerkemeier. In the webinar Christian examines the benefits of working with a barcode scanner in your app and then demonstrates the simple process of adding the Scandit barcode scanner using Titanium.

Our Appcelerator barcode scanner module includes support for UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-13, EAN-8, Code39, Code128, ITF, QR and Datamatrix barcodes. Scandit’s scan technology captures barcodes from any angle before the camera even focuses, representing the latest in mobile image recognition. With the Titanium module, developers will also be able to support the largest possible number of devices across iOS and Android, including a wide range of low-cost Android devices without autofocus cameras.

Titanium is a Javascript-based platform which enables the easy creation of mobile applications by combining the flexibility of open source solutions with the power of the cloud. Over 50,000 apps have been built by using the Titanium, and over 350,000 developers are now using the platform.  Here are some features and benefits of working with Titanium:

-Supports 5,000+ native APIs

-Use a single code base to develop apps for Android, iOS, and HTML5

-70% faster than developing in Objective-C or Java

-Unlimited extensibility

There are many more benefits to working with the Titanium platform. Interested developers can get started with our barcode scanner module by signing up for a Scandit account. Appcelerator has provided some great training resources which will help along the way.
