QR codes are useful coded images that can be scanned with your phone so you can access a wide variety of information quickly.
Unfortunately I don’t think people take advantage of them enough, mainly because it’s a fast way to zip to a website or read more information about a product without having to search for it.
However, finding a reliable app that allows you to process QR codes and barcodes quickly can be challenging.
CodeKit does a stunning job of making QR codes simple and easy for you. It not only allows you to scan QR codes out in the world, but you can generate them as well.
Concept and Functionality:
Personally I feel like QR codes have fallen to the side, which is very unfortunate because I believe they’re incredibly practical and efficient. Similar to barcodes on products you buy, QR codes are unique and can be customized to great lengths.
To begin using the app you need to create a group. Once you’ve done so, you can quickly scan whatever QR codes you need to and CodeKit, developed by Zane Carter, automatically saves the scanned results in your history.
Perhaps the best part of this feature is that you don’t have to wait for scan animations or anything like that – the iPhone camera always stays awake so you can scan quickly.
Something I really like about CodeKit is the fact that it keeps track of what you’ve scanned in the past, kind of like the history feature on your internet browser.
The app even allows you to take things a step further by not only letting you use filters and flags while browsing your code generation history, but also by supporting deep linking and shortcuts.
CodeKit iPhone App
One of the things that really impressed me about CodeKit is the fact that you can use 21 different code generators in order to find what works for you.
This includes creating QR codes for email addresses, Wi-Fi network information, text messaging, web links, deep links, and even sharing your phone number. As I mentioned above, CodeKit allows you to create customized groups in order to keep things that you’ve scanned organized.
This is incredibly helpful if you tend to rely on QR codes because it’s very easy to get them confused and mixed up.
CodeKit is available to download from the App Store for free, but you can choose to upgrade to the Pro version of the app via a 6 month, yearly, or lifetime subscription if you find it very useful.
The pro version allows you to create unlimited scanning groups, generate PDFs, access additional code generating features, and unlock a wide variety of other helpful tools.
Overall, CodeKit is a very helpful QR code app that definitely accomplishes what it was designed to do; help users generate and scan QR codes quickly and easily.
I definitely think this is an app that you should download and keep on your iPhone so you’re good to go the next time you want to scan a QR code.
CodeKit requires iOS 14.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
