    New iphone owner....what's the current best reader? Most of the online reviews are six to 12 months old...

    I have Red Laser and QRReader. They both seem to work fine when I use them.

    I like Qrafter. Besides being able to read QR codes with the camera, you can read codes that are sent to you via SMS, MMS, and email. You can create a QR from a contact and create a contact from a QR sent to you.

    Another +1 for Redlaser.

    Scans barcodes and QR codes with deadly accuracy and speed. There's just no substitute :)

    NeoReader

    I'm surprised by all the support for RedLaser. While it does read QR codes, I find it annoying to use plus it has a scary privacy policy/terms of service.

    I like NeoReader much better. It just works. ;) Open the app, point the camera at the code, and up pops the translation. No fiddling with aligning stuff, no cruft.

    I like Scan. It has never failed to detect any QR codes I've scanned before. My colleagues tried scanning a QR code over lunch and only mine managed to get to the link

    Besides the scanning portion, do you need anything else? i.e. 60 minutes had a story where people would go to Best Buy and scan the codes and search for a better price. So, what do I need?

    I imagine what you saw on 60 Minutes was just a price comparison app. The QR scanning part is just a quick and easy way to get the product's model number, or SKU. The Amazon app is one where you can scan a bar code or QR code from within the app, and the item will pop up. I think there are a number of shopping apps that check prices across the web, just like there are all over the internet.

    Red Laser

    Red Laser seems to be the most popular and effective tool. I rarely here people complain about it and it works great fro me. If your looking for one tool that does it all, this would be it.
