Customer Reviews



Please help me. Every v-card that I make with this app will not open the hope page URL when I click on it. I have made 7 different v-cards they all fail. I have made one me-card and it works. Please help me, or give me my money back.

Cannot PASTE


Cannot paste text into this App. i.e. You cannot paste a URL, you have to type the ENTIRE link in. WHY?!?!?!

does not export to VECTOR EPS


the description says it exports to EPS but it's BS. while it does export as an EPS it's not a vector file, it's just a rastor file embedded into an EPS file. there's absolutely no point in exporting to EPS if it's the same quality of the PNG. i'll give this a better rating when they actually export as a VECTOR EPS file… until then it gets a 1 star for misleading description. anyone who is looking to pick up a QR generator should save your money and look at free options that export to PNG as well.
