Camera app

What if I told you that you don't necessarily need apps to scan QR codes? By opening the app Camera iPhone, in fact, you can frame any QR code and the content of the latter, automatically, will appear at the top of the screen. Convenient, right?


If you are looking for an application for use iPhone QR code in a more advanced way, contact Qrafter which allows not only to read QR codes, but also to create them. The application is completely free (as long as you tolerate the display of some advertising banner during its use) and allows you to view and create QR codes of any kind: links to websites, contacts, geographic locations, data events of Wi-Fi networks. Fi and more.

After downloading Qrafter from the App Store, if you want to read a QR code with the application, all you have to do is start it, select the tab Scan located at the bottom left and press the button Scan with camera.

If you want, by pressing the icon of torch you can activate the camera flash while pressing on the card Multiple scan you can scan multiple QR codes in sequence.

Then select the tab Crea by Qrafter and choose the type of QR code to create: URL, Location, Contact card, WIFI network etc. Then type the content you want to insert in the code, press the button Preview which is located at the top right and, if the final result satisfies you, first press on Crea and then on the icon of sharing (the arrow located at the bottom left) to share the QR code with other apps or save it in the iOS camera roll.

Finally, I would like to point out that by going to the tab Chronology of Qrafter you can manage and possibly delete the history of information scanned with the application.
