QR Scanner+ v2.0

QR Scanner+ is designed for all who want more features than the integrated Windows Phone Bing QR code scanner provides.

Simply talking, QR Scanner+ begins where Bing Vision/Scan ends!

The main goal of QR Scanner+ is simplicity and to let the user actually understand what the scan result is about. The QR code RAW content is being translated into an instantly understandable result. The easy to reach (thumbfriendly area) result comes with useful functions (save, details, copy, browse) located in the appbar. The details view shows extended content and extra features depending on the QR code content type.

Scanning QR codes is fast and simple. To make scanning even more convenient, QR Scanner+ features a focus light for bad lighting conditions and a scan area limitation for better seperation if more QR codes are close together. The whole scanning concept relies on the idea of continuous scanning, so a result will never interupt the scan process.

Reading a QR code from an image is also possible with the newly added QR code reader. Just choose the image from your Windows Phone and QR Scanner+ is doing the rest.

The result shows an icon for fast visual type differentiation and a rehashed content preview. QR Scanner+ tries to get immediately a title from a weblink to show what the webpage is about even before entering it with Internet Explorer. Windows Phone Store app links are handled separately and showing the app name, app icon and country specific (if possible) rating indicator. Windows Phone Store app links are opened directly in the store without doing a detour over the browser 😉

With the ability to save the QR code content to the Catalog a reuse is super easy. The Catalog provides all necessary features for an easy organizing.

Barcode scanning is not the main operation of this app but it is also possible. The result can be searched with build in Bing search. Note: For now the phone and the barcode have to be at the same orientation! (Both! vertical OR horizontal).

QR Scanner+ can also do automated actions immediately after recognizing a QR code. These actions can be set individually in the settings and a toggle button in the app header can be used to disable or enable automatic launch features very quick depending on the situation. QR Scanner+ is in any case very customizable.

Try QR Scanner+ for FREE! Trial version is fully feauture unlocked, only a reminder message box will be shown after scanning and before doing any action. If you like QR Scanner+ you can disable the remider message box by purchasing QR Scanner+ for $1,99.
