About Client - iOS Mobile App Development

A Clothing Line Manufacturer and Retail Store Owner in Canada

A retail store in Canada wanted to expand its store to remote regions. The store offered multiple household products to clothing for the local customers. The client was looking to expand the business while integrating technology into its store.

Instead of the client's customer asking about every article or looking for a product sitting remotely, a QR code and a Barcode of the product can provide all the necessary details. The client was looking for a mobile app development company that can develop Barcode and QR code apps, especially for iOS devices. The usual QR barcode available in the market that lacks the requisite feature for the user to use. The client came up with a request to develop the best and easy to use QR code scanner app for various content types.

Lack of Substantial Solution to Reach Audience and Maximize their Revenue

As mentioned, the client had a flourishing retail store in the province of Canada. However, the client's business was expanding, and the real challenge was its customer to find the product with the best price without wasting much time.

The client was also the manufacturer of the private label of the clothing line for men, women, babies, and kids, especially the winter collection. The client had -

  • No mobile solution in the emerging market.

  • Challenge in Outreaching all its customers when offers or discounts were put.

  • Engage customers and increase their satisfaction.

  • The client approached A3logics for a robust and sophisticated application for the IOS users only.

Our Solutions - iOS App Development Services

We offered an iOS app with extraordinary aesthetics, easy to navigate, and seamless functionality.

We assigned a team that consists of developers, designers, and testers who were experts in developing an iOS app for more than a decade. The designers created an intuitive and interactive app interface, while the developers created an app using code libraries and PHP to provide product information as well as enable customization. The features that were incorporated within the barcode and QR code app are listed below -

QR Code Generator

The developers created a QR code generator that is customizable. With a subscription to QR code Reader and Barcode Scanner app, the admin can create unlimited custom QR codes from different content types, such as calendar, URL, text & more.

Scanning QR Code

The scanning QR code feature lets users scan and validate the code of their choice. With the help of the QR scanner feature, the user can check all specifications of the product as well as the content type, such as images, manufacturing details, pricing, and name of the product while storing them for future use.


A unique feature that makes the client's product search even faster. Along with scanning the product available, the lens can also be used for an online search for a product. This is an advanced feature that lets the user search for the product details of Google or Amazon or Walmart and find them to shop elsewhere.

Barcode Scanner

The source barcodes within the app are retrieved from wide & large retailers and eCommerce sites across the globe. A database of the code was created by the developers, so that the user can quickly fetch information about any product.

Scan History

An important feature that was integrated for the user is Scan history to ease the search. The users can sort the scanned codes as well as align their category-wise. The user can organize as well as delete the scan results or put the codes in a folder for quick and easy storage.

Batch Scan

What if the user wants to scan multiple QR codes and barcodes to scan? It is definitely time-consuming instead of scanning one code at a time. With this feature, users can scan at least 20 QR codes or barcodes in order to retrieve quick results. However, you will need a subscription to a Premium version for activating this feature.


The client wanted to share two versions of the app with their customers, free and paid. The free version lets the user scan only 3 QR codes or barcodes per day. Whereas the paid version allows unlimited scanning. The users can subscribe from the weekly, monthly as well as annual plans as per their preference with the feature to generate unlimited QR codes.


A folder was designed and developed by the developers for the users to store any code. This unique feature allows convenient organization and retrieval of the scanned and generated QR codes and barcodes. The user can create folders like Weblinks, Instagram, Text, MeCards, email, Instagram, and more to store the codes.


In order to make the app easy and users to search for the QR codes and barcodes easily, a filter feature was designed. The feature allows you to apply filters, such as "date-to-date" as well as other types of scans stored in folders like Text, Instagram, Spotify, Phone Number, Twitter, Spotify & more.

App Lock

An important feature to secure the codes is an App lock. The feature allows the user to secure the app by integrating a strong password for the code reader app. This app protects secure codes from intrusions or malicious activity.
