Works well


I like it. It works fine, wish you could embed graphic into email. Took snapshot of 1 and then sent the graphic via email. Would be even nicer if one could wirelessly copy onto desktop.

So far the only QR reader that's blown me away


I've tried a number of the free ones thus far, including NeoReader which seems to be fairly well reviewed.

NeoReader seems to read the codes fine, but it doesn't support contact data.

So I decided to try Optiscan which was well reviewed.

BOOM. WTH? With every other reader I've had to juggle the camera to focus proper, and then wiggle hands to get the shot right.

Optiscan whirls up the camera and in 1 or 2 seconds it just BOOM. And gives you the readout. One click.


great app

It is great to generate my own QR codes on the iPhone without worrying privacy and hidden issues in web apps. It's ease of use and clear interface is what I appreciate. You can also store QR codes you've taken with the camera in camera roll and read them later with a single swipe. Well worth the money. And the customer support is fantastic.
