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.

    Just purchased this App. and it keeps saying unable to locate item, and at times list a totally different item. Than what I am looking for.

    I was in the market for a scanner as I like to keep track of where I've been and where I'm going via hiking trails. Seems everyone that has the Lumia 635 reported no problems and that's the main reason that led me to purchase the AP. It is extremely fast and I really like the personal QR codes. I've already made two.

    Scanned but gave no options. It gave an untouchable URL that I couldn't even copy.
