"Scan whatever you find, wherever you are"

Reviewed by / Mar 22, 2012

Scan is a complete scanner for Android that merges simplicity and efficiency

There are lots of scanners, although not all of them allows you to scan QR, UPC, EAN and ISBN codes like this one does. This would be a powerful reason to make it your default Android code scanner. However, it contains other worthy features that make it overtaking some of its competitors.

One of the features we liked most is that when scanning a QR code that contains a URL it automatically takes you to the site, no need to tap on the URL like in other scanners. That small detail makes the difference. What's more, "Scan" keep track of your scanned codes in a history log. This history log can be sync and checked from your browser account if you sign up on their website. If you tap on your history log entries you can check where you scanned the code in a map.

From settings you can customize how Scan works: beep when scanning, vibrate when scanning or add scan.me account. Well, it's simple regarding customization but, what else do you expect from a code scanner?

There's no home menu, launching the app meaning launching the scanner: fast and simple. Recommendable.

Developer's original description available here
QR Code Reader is the fastest and most user-friendly QR code scanner available. If your Android came with a built-in scanner, this would be it. Here is what our reviewers are saying:

“Quick and very reliable. I’d give it six stars if it were possible.”
“No ads, beautiful design, and even caught blurry QR codes I didn’t expect it to scan”


To scan a QR code simply open the app, point the camera at the code, and you’re done! There is no need to take a photo or press a button. QR Code Reader will automatically recognize any QR code your camera is pointing at.

When scanning a QR code, if the code contains a website URL, you will 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.


• View a history list of all of your past scans
• Sync your scan history across the web and all of your devices
• Scan pictures of QR codes from your camera roll
• A switch to turn on your device’s light (if it has one) for scanning in low-light circumstances


Our app, Scan, is the feature-rich, premium upgrade to QR Code Reader. Find Scan by searching for “Scan” on Google Play.


Our goal is to make our app the best scanning app in the store. We can’t do this without you. We are dedicated to your satisfaction and need to hear feedback from you. If you have an issue with QR Code Reader, please do not write a review of the app saying "it didn't work." This does not help us make things better for you. Instead, please contact us at support@scan.me or on Twitter @scan and we'll do our best to help.


In order to use QR Code Reader, your device must have a built-in camera. When scanning codes that redirect to online content, such as websites, you will need Internet connectivity.
