The TrueSource iPhone app is a light version of the full online service. The app allows users to view high level product data and images held within the TrueSource Product Catalogue.
Simply aim the iPhone camera at the barcode on the product, or type in the GTIN (the number under the bar code symbol) and if the product is stored in the TrueSource Product Catalogue, it will return the image and description.
This trusted product information comes direct from the brand owner. More detailed product information is available within the full TrueSource Product Catalogue (link to TS landing page) which helps manufacturers manage their product data in one place and publish to all trading partners. The full online version of TrueSource is a free service for GS1 UK members.
Using the TrueSource service means there will only be one version of the truth and data inconsistencies and errors will be reduced.
The TrueSource app runs on all iPhones and will recognise all GS1 bar code symbols.
