The Bar-coded Boarding Pass (BCBP) code is common for flight tickets. There could be other codes too, but there doesn't seem to be any app for it yet. Mails also have different codes.

I'm a big fan of QR Code Generator from the ZXing Project. It's a web app that quickly lets you enter in any text to create a QR code.

The benefit there is that you may have apps that are set up to handle structured data. E.g.: a ...
