SCANNING CODES HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER

WHY WOULD I USE A QR CODE READER?
QR stands for Quick Response; QR Codes allow you to get content as easy as pointing the camera at it.
You have probably noticed printed ads with 2D barcodes while perusing magazines and newspapers or during shopping. Many companies now use QR codes to deliver special promotions, coupons, contest entries or videos to great content. A 2D barcode scanner is your best shopping companion, connecting you with discounts and special offers!
QR codes can do many things (for example play a video, create a Facebook Like, scan to buy, tweet, etc), and you will always be prompted to tap to take the relevant action.
If the code encodes a web address (URL), we will redirect you to the website.
If the code encodes contact information (vCard) the Kaywa Reader will show you the contact information and allow you to add that contact to your address book.
If the code encodes a text message, you will see the text message and with one click you can send it.
Kaywa not only brought QR Codes to the West in 2006, its reader was also featured by Google, Nokia, the Pet Shop Boys and TIM as their QR Code Reader of choice. Lifehacker, the New York Times, the Economist, the New York Post and many other influential blogs, websites and newspapers on the other hand have always pointed to qrcode.kaywa.com to generate QR Codes.

Fast and simple
App froze several times when I first tried to use it. Finally started working. I would prefer that we be able to set a preference for opening a URL directly in Safari rather than first opening in the app's built-in browser. Under preferences there is a typo: "General Informations." Should be singular. I like the simplicity of this QR scanner.
Best iPad QR scanner by a long shot.
This app, compared to others I personally think is the best QR scanner, it is the by far the quickest QR and can read QR's under light differences. The app compared to other app's doesn't display ads, which is very nice. I love in the app that when you scan a text field you can copy to your clipboard just by tapping, another feature I love is that when the app detects a QR it will make a sound. The sound it makes is kind of high and annoying, however.
Very helpful and easy to use
This app is great. It is easy and intuitive to use.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
