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.

Fast and Simple

We needed something simple and fast. This app did the trick. You can quickly scan, view the page and return back to the scanner for a second scan. Many other apps have a clunky flow. This one is simple and straight forward.

Fabulous- fast, reliable, easy to use

I downloaded another qr reader app that didn't work well. However this app is fast, reliable, and easy to use!

Not worth it!

This app is making me so mad. I used to use it for my students but since updating it turned gray and won't even let me delete it. It keeps saying "waiting" tried to contact developers to get some help but no contact information was ever found by me or my friends. I can't be the only one with this problem since all the other interns are having the same difficulties. Guess it was cool while it lasted. If only it'll get the heck off my screen now!
