One of the coolest things about owning a smartphone is being able to scan something in the physical world and pull up information or a link to it in the digital one. Here are a few apps to help you read or create these connections as barcodes and QR codes.
Not just a barcode scanner–scan the world around you and find out what you’re looking at, whether it’s a label or the Eiffel Tower.
What it says on the tin–scans barcodes and QR codes, anywhere, any time.
