QR Code Reader is the fastest and most user-friendly QR reader and barcode scanner available. If your iPhone, iPad, or iPod came with a built-in scanner, this would be it.


To scan a QR code or barcode simply open the app, point the camera at the code, and you’re done! There is no need to take a photo or press a button. QR Code Reader will automatically recognize any code your camera is pointing at.

When scanning a QR code, if the code contains a website URL, you will automatically be taken to the site. If the code just contains text, you'll immediately see it. For other formats such as phone numbers, email addresses, or contact info, you will be prompted to take the appropriate action.


QR Code Reader recognizes all of the popular barcode types (UPC, EAN, and ISBN) and shows you pricing, reviews, and more about any products you scan. Barcode scanning requires a newer phone in order to work reliably. Cameras on older devices do not provide the resolution or focus required for barcode scanning.


• View a history list of all of your past scans
• Scan pictures of QR codes and barcodes from your camera roll
• A switch to turn on your device’s light (if it has one) for scanning in low-light circumstances


In order to use QR Code Reader, your device must have a built-in camera. When scanning codes that redirect to online content, such as websites, you will need Internet connectivity.

does what it says

This app is simple. It uses your camera, and scans QR codes. It's practical. It's easy. It works, so thumbs up.

Im not sure about the 1 star reviews, I swear they must be from some other QR scanner app creator hating..... so I wouldnt listen to them. Also, the app wasn't working when the 'i' operating system 10 was released, but as of now it works on ios 10 perfectly.

Thanks for the app - Edin

Great and....

This app is great but on some food packaging it will not come up with it so if your looking for scanning exotic foods it may not be for you but other wise it it the best app ever!!!!!



I don't what these losers are complaining about; it works great! Ads? I didn't see any... Takes ages? You must have the shakes or something... And I like the way that it scans bar codes such as UPC too.
