Many of us mourn the loss of easy access to the Bing Vision app, which makes it child’s play to scan a QRCode.

We have seen some shortcut apps make it slightly easier to access it, but a new app by developer Reker is the first one to actually make it faster to use a shortcut than the old WP8 setup.

His Bing Vision Tile app lets you pin a shortcut to the Bing Vision app to your home screen (transparent btw) and on tapping it one is taken directly to the QRCode scanning interface.

This is one step faster than the old system, which would have required pressing the search button and then the Bing Vision button.image

The only fly in the excellent ointment is that the app costs $0.99 with a free trial, but if you sorely miss the functionality it may be worth the price.

Find it in the Windows Phone Store here.
