Scan is the fastest and most user-friendly QR reader and barcode scanner available. 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"
"I've saved over $80 by scanning products in the store and finding them cheaper online"


To scan a QR code or barcode 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. Scan will automatically recognize any code your camera is pointing at.


Scan recognizes all of the popular barcode types (UPC, EAN, and ISBN) and shows you pricing, reviews, and more about any products you scan. Barcode scanning requires a newer phone in order to work reliably. Cameras on older devices do not provide the resolution or focus required for barcode scanning.


• View a history list and map of all of your past scans
• Sync your scan history across the web and all of your devices


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 Scan, 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 or on Twitter @scan and we'll do our best to help.


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.

    So far the only problem I have see with it is barcodes it just does not read. Particularly part# barcodes. I haven't tried it in a store for product barcodes. But a few parts, some computer related, some car parts, and a few tools I have tried this on and it just not recognize it is even looking at a barcode. So it does scan it. It just pops back and forth in and out of focus as though it is trying. To figure out what it. Is looking at. Other than that I think it works great for QR codes. I put the app on my phone specifically for that. I needed it in one of my college classes because that is how we take attendance. And access some quizzes. It has not let me down and I am completely satisfied with it. If they were to fix that barcode Sid and then put this as a paid app. I would recommend it. Much better than the shop savvy one and so far as I can tell much less intrusive.
