Barcode App Recomendations

Okay, in the next week or so, I’m going to write a little bit about moving to self check-in. For the past 4 years, I have been wanting to upgrade to self check-in at Gateway, but we’ve not had the resources to do it all at once. So, I’ve been working on it all summer and we’re launching self check-in a week.

We went the barcode route and started distributing them last week. Here’s my big question though.

Do any of you recommend a good barcode app for your smartphone? We spent a little extra money to get the nice barcode readers, like the ones they have at Starbucks and airports. It was important to me that we had another option for people who forgot to bring their barcode.

The only app I know is the keyring app. It’s a great app with lots of options, but a little more complicated than I’d like. I want to make it super simple for parents to create a digital copy of their assigned barcode. Keyring makes you walk through 2-3 steps I’d prefer to avoid for simplicity. So, does anyone know of a simple app that stores your barcodes for future scanning?

Your help would be much appreciated!

App of the week: Onlive Desktop

I’ll probably get blasted from Mac fanboys for even suggesting such an app, but I felt it’s worth writing about and many should find it very helpful.

A friend of mine, who happens to work for Apple, introduced me to Onlive Desktop as a great iPad app. When he showed it to me, I thought… this is amazing! Genius actually. Honestly, I’m surprised that it took as long as it did to get an app like this on the iPad. What am I talking about? Onlive Desktop virtually puts Windows 7 on your iPad… kinda.

I know, I know… the first mocking question: Why would anyone put Windows 7 on your iPad? I’ll get to that in a minute.
