Developer Submission: QR Scanner+ gets an update with one-click Wi-Fi connection and more


26, 2016

QR Scanner+ gets another update (version 3.10.6) with cool new features, which makes using QR code content even easier.


If you have scanned a QR code with Wi-Fi login data before, then you needed to copy the password (1), leave the scanner app (2), open the Windows device Wi-Fi settings (3), search the SSID of the router you want connect to from a list (4), and then finally connect to it by pasting the password (5). QR Scanner+ had at least a Wi-Fi settings shortcut, but it wasn’t very convenient at all.

So now, the steps are reduced from 5 to 1. Just scan a QR code with Wi-Fi login data and press “Connect”. Simple, isn’t it?

Overview tab @ details

What are QR code scanning apps actually made for? Well, they translate the information from a non-readable format to a readable one, lets say “text”. Previous versions of QR Scanner+ showed this content well processed (unprocessed raw content is accessible also) and focused on giving you access to this content as detailed as possible, so the content can be used at any manner. This is pretty cool, if you need to work with that data. Now, with the added “Overview” tab, the content is presented more familiar.

Appointments have a little calendar, web links can be previewed, business cards are more compact and have direct actions if needed.

Auto-Launch for web links and Windows Store links

This feature was planned for a later update, but was added on request. It’s optional and can be toggled at “Result Specific” settings “on” or “off”. If set to “on”, then links will be opened immediately after scanning in the browser and Windows Store links (if compatible) in the Windows Store.

I hope you like the new features, more is in the works.

Please don’t forget to rate QR Scanner+ in the Windows Store and feel free to send in your feedback.
