Was talking to my girl a couple weeks ago about how cool it would be for the iPhone to be able to scan bar codes. Out of the box, it can’t because the camera lens is fixed-focus to about 3ft. The next day, my very clever lady found this on the interwebs:
Griffin lists it for $35, but I found it on Amazon for $20. Works so well with the free Snappr for shopping (try their mobile site!) and Evernote for everything else; one of Evernote’s nifty features is to be able to recognize text in an image, so the Clarifi is great for business cards, or any copy you want to remember without typing.
By the way, it’s a fine hard case, too.
For the snark record, the Clarifi was released mid-October, but it wasn’t til about two weeks after I ordered mine that I started reading about it everywhere. Man, Griffin, way to fill a really big need!
