Fastl, Useful, and Safe


I don't bother to rate many apps, but if you ever want to scan or create QR codes, you want this one. The free level is useful, and if want to do more you will find the paid level worth it. I particularly like the safety scan, which checks URLs against Google's database of dangerous websites before following the link. I've used the log of past scans and the integration with cloud storage sites is handy for sharing the information to my other devices.



I use this app weekly and it has never failed me. There are many available like this but it is by far the best. It is the only app that has never asked for more money to create qr codes.

Only tested 'create event feature'.


I was looking primarily for an app to make qr codes for appointments. This app has that feature but it does not allow you to specify the date and time of the event. I assume it works more or less properly otherwise but that seems like a pretty big miss in regards to features.
