iPhone version

Simple and easy to use one and two dimensional code scanner. The app supports next features:

The app recognizes the content of the code and triggers the appropriate action like opening website in a browser, displaying a location on map, searching a book by ISBN number, adding an event to calendar, adding a contact to the Address Book and so on.

The Code Scanner app has been designed to be as simple for use as possible and I hope you likes it.

If you find any mistakes in the code recognition please send me a letter and I will fix issue in the next app update. Thank you!
