Kooaba Offers An Alternative To QR Codes

Kooaba Offers An Alternative To QR Codes

An iPhone app with image recognition allows users to photograph printed, physical content for future digital access.

Paloma M. Vazquez

Providing some additional context – and competition – into the Quick Response (QR) code market is Kooaba. It’s an iPhone app that may compete head on with apps like Sticky Bits, allowing you to snap a photo of content like a DVD or CD cover, book, magazine or newspaper article you may want to archive or return to in the near future. Instead of only being able to recognize a bar code, Kooaba will understand what you are scanning and provide an original PDF and additional information to return to at your web-based account. You can then easily share the information via your social networks, and return to the content you’ve saved for review later.
