The Best QR Code Scanner/Reader Apps For Android and iPhone

QR Code is a software technology that makes it easy to share information without wires, internet and any other wireless signal. You only need a QR Code scanner or reader app on your device in order to decode the code. The reader app will use your camera and read the hidden information inside the QR Code.

E-commerce, Mobile wallet and other tech companies in the world are using QR code technology to easily share any information with their customers. Through programming, developers can easily generate QR codes in the mobile app or website, but if you want to generate a QR Code for any other use, learn how to generate QR Codes.
