About

Simple QR is a FOSS app to scan, create and store QR codes with a simple UI and experience. No backend service connected. No data collected. No ads.

It's now available on the following platforms.

App Store Google Play GitHub IzzyOnDroid

Features

By using the app, you can

  1. Scan QR Code and other barcodes in a second, including UPC, EAN, Code 39/128, ITF, Codabar, Aztec, Data Matrix, PDF417, MaxiCode and GS1 DataBar.

  2. Import image files and scan the QR Code on it.

  3. Create QR code from templates, which includes Free Text, URL, vCard Contact, Phone Number, Message, Email and Wi-Fi.

  4. Automatically log results that you scan, create or view again. These logged records can be bookmarked for quick access, and also backupable.

  5. Do tasks on the result content with a tap, including but not…

What can I do with Simple QR?

By using the app, you can

  • Scan and read various barcodes by using camera.
  • Import image to read QR code.
  • Generate QR code from different templates.
  • Customize the QR code, e.g. color, margin, error correction level.
  • Do various tasks on the result content with a tap.
  • Log the result content from scanning, creating or viewing again.

What makes Simple QR?

To make it hybrid, I use ionic, capacitor and angular to develop Simple QR. If you are a beginner of ionic or angular, I think this project is a good reference to you.

Where can I download from?

Simple QR is available on both App Store and Google Play.

If you don't want to access to both stores, you can also download it from GitHub or IzzyOnDroid.
