It was almost a year and a half ago that Microsoft released GetTag for BlackBerry. The app essentially let you read 2D barcodes from your BlackBerry camera. Microsoft decided to finally take the beta wrapper off the product and conceded that the basic use of tags will be free of charge. You can simply create tags by going to tag.Microsoft.com track your tags and read about how others are using tags.
They plan on releasing some more business focused features in the future that they will probably charge for. They aim is to hit on the publishing, advertising, retail, transit, automotive, and other industries to get adoption for the platform.
These 2D barcodes have come a long way but I am curious how many of you have actually used them. I know I have tested out BlackBerry Messenger QR Codes but nothing beyond that. If you are interested in Microsoft’s tag reader check it out at gettag.mobi.
