Scan - QR Code and Barcode Reader

By QR Code City

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.



To celebrate our latest update, Scan is on sale for a limited time for $1.99 down from $4.99! (over 50% off!)


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. Here is what our reviewers are saying:

“Quick and very reliable. I’d give it six stars if it were possible.”
“No ads, beautiful design, and even caught blurry QR codes I didn’t expect it to scan”
“I’ve saved over $80 by scanning products in the store and finding them cheaper online”


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 iPhone or iPad 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
• Sync your scan history across the web and all of your devices
• Toggle your front or rear camera for scanning
• Set a default browser to open websites in
• 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


Our goal is to make our app the best scanning app in the store. We can’t do this without you. We are dedicated to your satisfaction and need to hear feedback from you. If you have an issue with Scan, please do not write a review of the app saying "it didn't work." This does not help us make things better for you. Instead, please contact us at or on Twitter @scan and we'll do our best to help.


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.


Want to make your own QR codes for others to scan? Visit our site at to create and manage your own QR codes for free.

Update: We recently released a new Wi-Fi QR code type on our site. These new Wi-Fi QR codes allow visitors to your home or business to scan a QR code to get easy access to your wireless network.

No Problems

My phone is the iPhone 6 and this app has worked perfectly for me so far, performing exactly as the developer claims it will. It captures QR and bar codes so fast that I have to cover the camera lens until I get it in position if there are two codes close together, otherwise it will grab what it sees first!
I don't like having to join ShopAdvisor when I scan bar codes and go to look for the lowest prices. I'll probably join soon anyway as I'm curious about where the price data comes from, but ugh! Why do I need to log in?! And do I really need a password? Who would want to hack my ShopAdvisor account?? Either way, I hope that price info. is there because it wouldn't do me any good to see a lower price on the pop up graph and not be able to pay less for a product.
I've only used this app for a fraction of what it is supposed to be capable of so that's all I can review on, but the other features sound really unique and should be very useful/helpful. I actually didn't know it could do so much until I came to submit a review (not a fan of being nagged for feedback) and ended up reading more about it.


I was shopping and i wanted to scan this thing I seen for my son to look it up and find a price on it without carrying it around the store until I found a scanner,which 8/10 those don't even work, or without having to find an employee who could scan it at a register for me. I had already downloaded this app when I got my new phone and when I tried to use it, I hit the scan button so many times and it moves like I clicked it but it didn't even do ANYTHING ! Needless to say this app is now getting deleted...I will find another one like I use to have

Best one I tried so far

I tried 5 to 6 QR & Barcode scanners and I found that only 2 actually worked for me and this is probably the better one of the 2. If I were you I would save the time and look no further.
