iPhone QR, Data Matrix and Aztec Code Reader

Apple have approved the mobile barcode scanning application NeoReader for the iPhone and it is now available free from Apple’s App Store and iTunes Store (search for Neoreader in the iTunes store). iPhone users can now decode QR, Data Matrix and Aztec Codes from one application with one click. Here is the iTunes store application description:

See a great pair of shoes in a magazine and want to find the nearest location to buy them? See a cool new HDTV in the store and want more details before buying it? See a movie ad or poster and want to view the trailer? If these ads & shelf tags contain a 2D barcode, you can use the NeoReader to transform your mobile phone into a barcode scanner and immediately Iink to the web content you are looking for. You can even promote yourself with a 2D code. Create your own personal code that links to your website and you can show it off on a business card, a t-shirt, heck, you can tattoo it on your arm.

Install the NeoReader barcode scanning software and you‘re one easy click away from information you want – everywhereyou go. lt’s so easy to use – launch the NeoReader, click on the barcode with your camera and ZIP…the content is delivered to your phone. No typing URLs into your browser, no painful search engines, no cumbersome menus to navigate.

The NeoReader is a universal barcode scanning application that allows you to access mobile web content by scanning codes from print ads, packaging, billboards and broadcast media. Universal means that the NeoReader scans all the standard 2D symboIogies (Data Matrix, QR, Aztec), so NeoReader is the only scanning software you’II need.

Many companies are starting to utilize 2D codes… install the NeoReader and start taking advantage of them today.

  1. The iCode app from the bryton group does not decode qr or datamatrix codes – only their own code which is silly.

  2. Give 2D Sense a try – from the guys behind the first iPhone 2D code reader, iMatrix. It currently supports QR Codes, DataMatrix, Shotcode and more formats in the soon to be released version. By far, the most full featured decoder currently available.

  3. I installed both Neo Reader and 2D sense on my iPhone and I can only get 2D sense to work when my phone can connect to the internet, but Neo Reader works any ware. But I don’t like how Neo Reader treats every scan as a URL. With 2D sense I like when you scan a phone number it treats it as a phone number or when you scan an email address, SMS or some ones contact info it brings it up as the right thing. Neo Reader needs to work on that.

  4. Kris, there’s no “working on” that URL nonsense. That’s why NeoReader is distributed for free, they want to control how the URL is decoded.

    Do you want some random company to be in control of every incoming barcode scan (think ‘web click’) to your website? Then go ahead and install this.

    NeoMedia (which see) have no intention of making it a general-purpose reader, they want to herd the users through their website to the fleecing fields.

    Try ZXing for a free and open-source reader.

  5. Scan Repo by Lorillex supports all major 2D barcodes and is available for both android and IOS. The app’s scanning component is powered by the Zebra Crossing engine, a code base originally authored by Google.
