Scan is the fastest, simplest and most user-friendly QR Code and barcode scanner available. If your iPhone (or iPod Touch/iPad*) came with a built-in QR Code scanner, this would be it! Check out our site at to create and manage your own QR Codes for free.


Scan is completely free. There are no locked features, “lite” version restrictions, etc. It's just simple QR Code and barcode scanning the way it should be. Open the app, point the camera at the code and youre done! No need to take a photo or press a “scan” button like other apps.

When scanning a QR Code, if the code contains a website URL, you'll 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 now reads regular barcodes (UPC, EAN, and ISBN) and gathers information about the products you scan, allowing you to research and find places to purchase the products you love.

NOTE: Barcode scanning requires an iPhone 3S/4/4S or the new iPad in order to work reliably (the camera in other devices does not provide the detail/focus required for barcode scanning).


– Forward-facing light for scanning
– History logs (including date & time) of all of your past scans.
– Automatically sync your scan history across web, iPod, iPhone, or iPad


The company behind Scan is dedicated to your satisfaction and is always open to your feedback. 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 improve the app. Instead, please contact us at and we'll do our best to help. We're constantly improving Scan to make it the best QR Code scanner anywhere.

* 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.
