QuickMark - QR Code Reader

By SimpleAct Inc.

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


QuickMark is a barcode reader application that allows you to automatically scan and generate multiple barcode formats (Quick Code, QR Code, Data Matrix) with your Mac.

Does not yet fully support Mountain Lion! Must allow permission to access Address Book to function on Mountain Lion! (To add scanned contacts or generate QR from contacts)

Main features:
* Scan 2D barcodes via built-in webcam
* Decode 2D barcodes you see on your screen with Transparent Mode
* Decode 2D barcodes from file or drag-and-drop
* Create your own 2D barcodes

Things you can do by reading a 2D barcode:
1. Access a web link
2. Send an email
3. Add a contact to Address Book
4. Navigate to a specific POI on online map (via browser)
5. Make a phone call (via Skype)
6. Send a SMS (via Skype)
7. Add an event to calendar
8. Supports Structured Append QR Codes

IMPORTANT: Must allow permission to access Address Book to function on Mountain Lion!

Go to System Preferences > Personal > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Contacts to check if the permission is enabled for the app.

NOTES: This app uses Mac's built-in webcam. But for Mac Mini, UVC compatible webcams may be used. Does not work with firewire DV cameras. Some webcams (e.g. Mac's built-in cameras) are without auto-focus and may not read smaller barcodes. This version does not read 1D barcodes. Camera Mode still works best because our app has most image samples to work with.

OS X 10.6.6 or above required.

What's New in Version 3.8.9

+ Fix Lion compatibility issue for certain Mac models

+ Option to copy scanned data to clipboard

+ Transparent Mode is now a separate Panel under Tools > Transparent Decoder (thus can no longer launch app as Transparent Mode as in previous versions)

+ Misc. bug fixes

Customer Reviews


Excellent product! Works great for both creating and reading QR Codes on my MAC

Crashes on startup

I open the application, click 'start' and boom, it crashes. Please resolve this problem, contact me for error logs, or send me a refund. Thank you.

Don't Waste Your Money

I can't get this to scan anything. An absolute waste of money.
