A QR (Quick Response) barcode reader for iPhone and iPod Touch

qwikScan aims to be the most comprehensive QR code scanner available on any platform, if you can scan the code qwikScan will know what to do with it.

Written in partnership with Leicester City Learning Centres, qwikScan also has a educational focus - special codes generated for qwikScan allow the downloading and instant playing of movies sounds, pictures, even webpages - stick a QR code in your resources to embed movies into your worksheets. Media files can be download and stored within qwikScan ready for offline viewing, offline files can be opened from a list of media or simply by rescanning the same code.

qwikScan has all the standard features you'd expect; open the app and the camera is immediately ready to grab a code - as soon as the camera sees a code, qwikScan will do whatever the code says! A complete history of scans (optionally with the location the code was scanned) is saved so you can call it back later.

qwikScan also lists all the media that has been saved to the phone. The comprehensive settings, which also provide the deletion of saved media can be locked behind a passcode to protect them from the users (i.e. school children)

Also, coming soon, full language support - qwikScan can operate in any language you choose, including languages that are not supported by the iPhone - if you want to provide a translation, just let us know!

Use qwikScan with QRCodeGallery.com - This website enables the generation of all common and some qwikScan specific codes. A project pack section allows you to upload various file types to generate a code for that media. These media codes will work with most QR Code scanners on most devices, but qwikScan also allows use of mini optimised codes and multiple file download with a single code.

Upload files into a project pack on QRCodeGallery.com, print a code sheet to distribute the codes then download all the files into qwikScan with a single code - ready for use offline!

Well thought out

I really like this app and its associated Web site. The only thing I would like to be able to do is to transfer the media I download to elsewhere on the device such as the camera roll. Well done.

Truly amazing -

This app does it all - if you take the time to check out the supporting website - what you can use this app for , particularly in education , is quite stunning - I cannot recommend it highly enough -

Very nice

Works really well.

Benefits over some other free QR scanners that I have tried

1. Guide on the screen to show you where the main components of the code need to align to.
2. Asks if you want to go to the related Website before taking you there.
3. Options to turn things on or off.

Nice job
