We are excited to announce the recent launch of GeoTunes, a DJ Request management app. GeoTunes was developed by QC Total Tech for Twisted Mics Entertainment, they had some specific needs they wanted the app to meet. We developed an iOS app that works on both iPhones and iPads. The GeoTunes app allows guests of events emceed by a DJ to request songs for free from their smart phone, the app is sent through the GeoTunes cloud (also built by QC Total Tech) to the DJ running the GeoTunes Pro app. Having an app to facilitate the requesting of songs during a crowded and noisy event is a big benefit to guests and DJs alike.

You may have heard about this technology known as "Beacons", but maybe you don't have all the info on it just yet, allow us to enlighten you. Beacons are small (often battery powered) devices that that emit a signal that an app can be programmed to detect. You might think that doesn't sound very interesting, but oh contraire mon frère, they can do a lot. As an example, let's say your business has its own mobile app, and you want to offer people something special for entering your business, or provide information about an upcoming event. The beacon would allow the app to do that, because by using the beacon the mobile app "knows" that the customer is indeed within the small radius of the beacon.
Beacons are great because they're inexpensive to purchase (often under $20)
Some people ask, why did you create BarcodeKeeper? Well, the answer is simple, we saw the need. Our lead developer, Jason Howell, has worked in the IT field in numerous capacities over the last two decades and saw a need to track devices, components, etc in an organized manner VIA an app. BarcodeKeeper was created for the individual IT professional or field technician with bunches of devices and items to manage/track in many locations. Having an app that allows you to quickly scan the device's barcode (presumably an asset tag), paired with the ability to automatically get the physical address of the item is incredibly convenient. BarcodeKeeper has 3 primary purposes
Scan the barcode or asset tag
Snap a photo of the item
Track the item's location
BarcodeKeeper uses your Smartphone's camera and GPS to automatically scan
