    Hi everyone,

    As QR Codes started to take off in 2010, you will probably hear about them more and more in the following months. So, I would like to introduce Qrafter, a free QR Code scanner for iPhone to you.

    Qrafter can scan QR Codes and interpret their contents. You can get updated information about its capabilities on its App Store description page.

    An app is nothing without its users. Qrafter will be updated and maintained according to its users' feedback and feature requests, so I would appreciate every bit of feedback from you.

    You can download Qrafter from this link.

    Cheers to all!

    UPDATE: Qrafter has just been updated to v1.2 and can open vCards directly from Safari or inside its own web browser. Its vCard parser is the first complete vCard parser that can download vCards.

    I'll be honest, I wanted to try your app because TapReaders icon is butt ugly and yours fits in with the stock iOS apps. I can happily say that this app is far better than I thought it would be.

    You put some real thought into it and I love your Info section. I especially like the 2D Code Examples which give users an idea of what different codes look like, what they are and what will and won't scan.

    Also, the Planned Updates section is what every dev should have in their app. I was going to suggest that because the name is Qrafter (a play on crafter I assume) you may want to add the ability to create codes but I see you've already planned on doing that.

    Really, I'm impressed. Great work!

    Thank you!

    Well, Qrafter had a lot of planning and testing of other apps ahead of its development. Actually I was bored that other apps' weren't as complete as I needed and I was getting tempted about iPhone development, so I chose to create myself a challenge with Qrafter. It's my first app.

    You are correct on the name play, and I already have my own generator since 2006, which proved to be more than successful. I can proudly say that it is regarded as one of the best 2D Code generators on the internet. So I'll put its abilities to work on future versions of Qrafter also.

    I have added some new features to v1.1 which is waiting for approval, so there is more to come.

    Thanks again for taking your time to reply, it's much appreciated.

    I have written the review and submitted it several times but it's not appearing - does Apple have to approve it??

    Perhaps it's not realtime and will be updated in a few hours.

    PS: v1.2 will have a feature that even Apple's own Safari doesn't have :)

    I haven't notified this thread for some time, but Qrafter has been updated a lot since March. Yesterday it had its biggest update so far and is now at v2.0. It can generate QR Codes with various content types using its offline QR Code generator, save or send them and even print them with its AirPrint support.

    Qrafter updated to 3.0 and includes iPad support

    Hi again folks,

    Qrafter has been updated again and now includes a brand new iPad design. It is the first QR Code app that is designed from scratch for iPad instead of taking the iPhone version and making it bigger.

    You can download it from http://qrafter.com/get/

    Does anyone really use QR codes for anything useful? I've had this app quite a while and have never come across an occasion to use it.

    businesses have begun to use them as coupons and for various other discounts.

    I'm not so sure about their use yet either, yes it provides dynamic advertising, but they could have otherwise just shown the information somewhere.

    A clever man would get a thrill out of implementing them however.

    I understand you "could" do lots of stuff....but if the technology doesn't get sufficient user traction (which it doesn't seem to be) it'll never take off. I remember the "Cue Cat" and had two of them...this seems like a better implementation of that concept, but isn't catching on any better with the masses.

    It is gaining the traction faster than you think. My generator site currently has ten times the visitor count of this time last year. Most people think it is a gimmick at the moment, but I am sure it will be used more and more in the near future.
