Thing is, it's a security nightmare...

OIC Thanks for the tip - just wish it actually worked!!! I managed to get the 818Pro version installed on my M5000 (Universal), but no amount of waving will get it to scan the image; I tried generating some of my own from the site and also tried with Paul's avatar, but got nothing for my troubles (besides, the image was rotated, so it was a bit like "The Golden Shot" (one for the real oldies among us!) to get it to line up)
You dont actually take a picture - when it recognises the barcode it translates it automatically
You could try "waving" your phone (slowly) around the picture, sometimes looking straight on doesn't work and you dont HAVE to have the whole barcode in the target area for it to work.
Presumably, the sound in the install directory is played when the program successfully captures the image??
In desperation, I emailed the people at Quickmark and asked if/when there would be a version for the Dopod 900/Universal - will post later if they get back to me.

You have to experiment a bit to get it work. I also had to do that on my german phone.
renaming to change to english does not work on all my phones , all the settings on the phone are uk english , it must have something to do with the simcard as well as the modaco C600 is an english phone , oh well time to remove it

Great li'l tool with loads of possibilities. I particularly like the t-shirt and business card ideas banded around in here.

I've seen these Q-marks on a few things, this could be a good marketing gimic, better than the BT posters that are springing up around London.
The V-card idea is good.
previous phones .~::~. T-Mobile Hermes with Black Satin ROM (ex Orange M3100), O2 Mini-S, SPV C500, loads of Nokias......

Actually, i'd like a .net CF component that could read barcodes. A much easier way to manage the shopping list methinks with that

a .NET component would be GREAT as you could use it for so many applications.
One that I remember is a PC program that inventories books, movies, video games by scanning the UPC (or manually adding the ISBN number) then adding all of the data into a database (title, author, actors, console, etc) and also adds a photo of the product so it looks as if it were sitting on a shelf.
So you would also need a good DB to back up the functionality.

it would be very useful with image save option.

Even if that's not possible, a client app that effectively calls that website then extracts the image would definitely be feasible.
