SnipSnap for Android and iOS got some attention on Technically Philly yesterday, in celebration of Android’s release and iOS hitting 550K users. SnipSnap CEO Ted Mann also explained a little more about bar code beaming technology, and how mobile couponing could become much more high-tech for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
The Android version is similar to the iOS version, said Mann except that the Android app also has the ability to “beam” barcodes. That means that your phone’s infrared sensor transmits the coupon barcode to laser-based scanners that can’t read barcodes off a phone, Mann said. That functionality is only available for Samsung Galaxy S4.
