Mobeam Unleashes Beaming SDK for Android

Mobil barcode beaming technology provider Mobeam is making its mobile beaming technology SDK available to developers, enabling them to create their own android-based applications and concepts utilizing barcodes or other applications of beaming. A collection of self-service APIs and tools, the Mobeam SDK license will be offered free to developers for an initial period of 120 days with extensions available on a case-by-case basis.
Mobeam’s patented light-based beaming technology overcomes historical technical barriers and enables point of sale (POS) laser scanners to read barcodes on Android mobile devices. 
Popular and emerging “mobile payment” apps rely on NFC or other technologies that communicate with credit card payment terminals, but not with scanners.  Mobeam enables true mobile “wallets” and not just NFC-based card payment substitutes, meaning payment apps can now carry loyalty cards, membership cards, gift cards, tickets, vouchers and coupons, providing them with universal POS access at retailers.  Mobeam technology easily integrates with all existing mobile payment apps, thus completing their role as a comprehensive mobile wallet. 
Mobeam currently operates with more than 200 million Samsung phones, and the company is in talks with other manufacturers to expand the technology to other market leading devices. Mobeam technology has been used for more than 23 million beaming transactions since its launch.
In addition to mobile wallet applications for retail, multiple other industry segments are evaluating concepts for transmitting barcode-based content, including travel, transportation, loyalty, manufacturing and health care.
The Mobeam Beaming SDK for Android provides APIs for developers to generate and beam a variety of barcodes including UPC, EAN, Code 128, Codabar, GS1 Databar and others.
