Mobile Barcoder 0.1.4

More requested functionality, now you can create a barcode for a link or even selected text

The latest version of my Mobile Barcoder Firefox Extension has now passed verification and is compatible with Firefox 3. New features and changes include:

  • Link barcode - Right click on a link, and directly in the context menu you can display a barcode for that link. This will be especially useful for people who have been wanting to create links for application downloads on sites which don't display them already.
  • Text selection barcode - Right click on a text selection and just like with links, you can display a barcode for that text directly in the context menu. Not quite as useful
  • Now using Nokia Mobile Codes generator - Since the barcode generator is server-side, this should help ease the problems that have been experienced by users when my personal server goes down, and should also increase the speed of generation. Thanks Marku and team at the Nokia

Portrait of the author

On weekdays I'm a Technical Lead at, having previously been a Solution Architect at Nokia & Nokia Siemens Networks, creating creative software solutions for mobile operators around the world.

In my spare time I'm an avid new technology fan, and constantly strive to find innovative uses for the new gadgets I manage to get my hands on. Most recently I've been investigating Mobile Codes, RFID and Home automation (mainly Z-Wave). With a keen eye for usability I'm attempting to create some cost-effective, DIY technology solutions which would rival even high-end retail products. The software I develop is usually released as Open Source.

I have a Finnish geek partner, so have begun the difficult task of learning Finnish.
