As a stand-alone scanner, the Phy Browser is a reimagined experience for discovering content through QR Codes, NFC tags, and Bluetooth beacons.
When that content is created and managed through Phy Platform, the user experience through the Phy Browser is fast, image-rich, and engaging. It also doubles as a showcase of our lightweight SDK that enables third-party apps with multi-action capabilities and the added benefits of personalization and security from malicious content. Mobile apps that use the Phy SDK will be able to replicate the user experiences available now in the Phy Browser.
Links in the Real World – Discover more, faster with the Phy Browser. Quickly scan QR codes and discover content from nearby Physical Web beacons with ease. It even makes it easy to scan URL-based NFC tags.
When supported with the Phy platform, multiple web links can now be added to any real-world object by using QR codes, NFC tags, and Bluetooth beacons. Those links can launch a wide variety of digital experiences tailored to a user’s context and interest -- product websites, rich media, text or phone interaction, business chat, transactional messaging, and even IoT (Internet of Things) control or AR (augmented reality) experiences.
Discover QR Browsing – Because the Phy Browser displays metadata previews of links rather than blindly linking to the URL, it delivers a unique browsing experience. Hyperlinks become discoverable in groups. Moving the Phy Browser across several QR codes will display instant previews for each QR code.
Better Beacon Experience – When you open the Phy Browser, it scans for nearby Bluetooth Beacons, specifically Eddystone-URL beacons. If any are found, you will see previews of their content on the beacons view. When beacons are supported by the Phy Platform, each beacon can support previews of multiple hyperlinks.
It’s About Convenience – When everyday places and things include their own layers of useful digital content, you can get information, make decisions, or find support during the exact moments you need it.

Ratings and Reviews
I'm software engineer building software for the physical web. I luckily found this browsers to test my beacon. It works like a charm. Plus the UI is clean. Fantastic work. I'm gonna let everyone know they should use this app to browse the physical web. Thank you!
what physical web browsing should look like
if there are beacons nearby, this physical web browser is the only one that shows scan results with big images. very clean and crisp. more in line with how people want to see content. while i dont want yet another app, this is good for seeing what's possible with this new tech.
Slick looking app
This app has a professional presentation of Physical Web beacons. Easy to use, beautiful to look at.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
