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.

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 scan a QR code to get easy access to your wireless network.

Customer Reviews

Tried five other apps

THE GREAT: Only one of the other apps I tried recognized the brand of shoes I scanned, but this is the only that recognized the size which is super important for ordering a product that is 'going to please'. I guess I could have made an entry about the size in another app, but no need now.

(1.) I liked one of the other apps ability to save the items info in a list that I was able to specify (ie "Clothing, Shoes") and add to in the future.
(2.) None of the apps I tried had the ability to make notes about the item (ie Size) including this app...maybe someday ;),

Amazing, would have payed for it.

Almost every single QR app I have ever used has been annoying, they always seem to be methods of getting users into another platform (eBay, ect.). Scan is great because it does just that, scans QR codes, and nothing else (like ask you to purchase goods or download another app). While I did get Scan before it became $1.99, it is such a great app that I would have bought it anyways.

Fast, Clean & Reliable

I have used this app for a few years now and I always found it reliable. Recently however some friends wanted to compare. We compared several, and this app had the simplest interface, was very fast at returning results, and was very reliable. What more could you ask for. No I do not work for or have any affiliation with this company.
