Scan 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.
HOW THE APP WORKS
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. Scan 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.
Scan 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 and map of all of your past scans
• Scan pictures of QR codes and barcodes from your camera roll
• Toggle your front or rear camera for scanning
• Set a default browser to open websites in
• Export your history and email it as a CSV file
• A switch to turn on your device’s light (if it has one) for scanning in low-light circumstances
In order to use Scan, your device must have a built-in camera. When scanning codes that redirect to online content, such as websites, you will need Internet connectivity.
- Support for the iPhone X
- Export your history as a CSV file
- Fixed blurry camera seen on some devices
- Faster and more accurate scanning
Ratings and Reviews
Simple yet capable
This is a simple yet very capable free scanner. It does exactly what it advertises. It also provides a history of scans and it allows you to choose whether to open the URL or not. It's customizable to open in Safari or another browser you may have installed on your phone. I have tried a few others today and so far this one seems to be the simplest and most effective to accomplish what I needed to do.
I am very satisfied with the SCAN app. In the past I had to use several different scanning programs due to the different scan techniques employed. I dowloaded this app a while ago and found I could get rid of many others I didn’t need anymore.
So far no problems so no experience with any tech support. Thank you to the developers.
Won’t scan a barcode, even after paying for the app!!
I paid $1.99 to get the app so I could scan the barcode, and then it won’t scan. It tells me at the website that it may be that my camera is not high enough resolution, but my iPhone has an excellent camera and when I look at it the barcode through the screen, it’s completely fuzzy! It is crystal clear when looking through my camera, though. Your app cannot see clearly. I want my money back, or at least tell me how to fix the stupid thing! :(
