Very Good App

Frequently use this app. Best free app in such category.

Ugly, but FAST

This is probably the worst looking UI of any app I have installed. However, despite that, I’ve never encountered a faster reader. Code’s at an angle, blurry, and tiny, and it’ll read that thing in less than a second. It also does Data Matrices, which is awesome.


I hate this app


For math we had to do a walk around and this is the only QR code reader that wouldn’t take forever to read!

of poem of crap
the og mclover

roses are red violets are blue let me just say this app is a piece of poo

Works perfectly!
And nf

i-Nigma works perfectly! Scans the correct code and is very helpful! Definitely recommend!

Good app

When reading codes, it is flawless. It reads codes in less than a second, and immediately sends you to the site. The only flaw is that the interface is a bit outdated.

Not Impressed

I have yet to scan a code and have this app find any information on the internet. I even scanned the box my iPhone came in... nothing. I tried contacting support but they do not respond.

Dang! First app I found that's able to read Micro QR codes!

I literally only tried it with (because only needed for) micro QR codes. First app I tried, and it did the job with 0 fuss. The interface is clunky, yes, and ugly, sure. But I didn't need a pretty app, I needed an app that allowed me to read Micro QR codes...and I found it.

Micro QR code

I tried scanning a few micro QR codes but unable to do so with this app! Looks like this is just another qr code scanning app, without the support for scanning micro QR codes!
