Scan, Read QR Codes Using iPhone Camera


With the technological advancements in the recent past a lot has been focused on the convenience aspect. One such innovation was the QR Codes which were invented in 1994 and today are being used for several other purposes. One of the advantages we have with the QR code is that we can access websites faster by using QR code reader applications on our android devices and apple devices such as iPhone, ipad etc.

Talking about apple devices specifically, several QR code reader applications are there in the market but the one that we are going to review today is definitely the fastest reader so far. Known as Scan, the app does not need any button to be pressed in order to open a page, instead you just need to point the device at the code and the auto focus camera does it all.

The app has two main sections, Scan and History. As I said above in order to scan codes just point the device at the code.


The History section keeps a log of all the URLs whose codes were scanned, so that one can access the pages again even if the code is not present anymore.


The app also has a settings option. To access the settings, open the History tab and then press settings on the top left corner. The same section has a History sync option which can be used to backup all the visited URLs to your email address. To do so one has to create a new account and then you can Sign In and start syncing. It has has an Ask Before Opening feature which will ask every time to open a page or not once you have scanned the code.


App Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.

Conclusion: Brilliant app, works really fast but I wish It had more features as well.
