There are probably over a 100 QR code scanning apps in the app store. So why use this one? QRude Scanner is simple QR Code scanner which aims to make it easy to scan lots of QR codes and export them later through email, airdrop or SMS messages for instance. 13 different kinds of codes can be scanned QR codes, DataMatrix, Aztec and various barcodes. The app can be paired with a PC or Mac to send all scanned codes to a particular port in plain text.
It is able to scan multiple visible codes at the same time so if you have a whole sheet of codes it can quickly scan those.
It is a free app with no annoying ads or arbitrary restrictions ;-)
Multiple types of codes can be scanned not just QR codes, but also Aztec, DataMatrix and many kinds of barcodes. The scanner will scan multiple visible codes at a time and outline each detected code. Simple pairing with a Mac or PC can also be performed. QRude Scanner can connect to a server and port either configured manually or scanned of a QR code.

On your Mac run this from terminal: hostname. And then run: nc -l 9999. Now you can directly connect this app to your Mac.
The share screen is freezing the app. But I don’t care because the above integration allows me to do awesome stuff.
This works SO smoothly. One thing though: some help for pairing to MAC or PC would be helpful. Perhaps a help menu?
I had no trouble getting codes to scan. Works like a charm.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
