7 Free QR Code Reader Apps for Android

QR codes are all the rage these days, and if you’ve got an Android, you hold in your hand the power to unlock the mysteries of the QR code-spackled world.

These distinctive barcodes are generally square and rendered in simple black-and-white blotches. You’ll find them on TV shows, in print publications, in subway advertisements… Heck, we’re willing to say marketers will slap a QR code on anything that doesn’t move or talk. QR code clothing is also available.

QR codes are used to reveal more information about a product, service, event or person. Generally, they direct the scanning device to a special URL, video, coupon, event page, email address, or other digital signpost with more details and content.

To scan the codes, all you need is a mobile device with a camera and an app to interpret the data in the code.

Here is a handful of free and serviceable Android apps for scanning and deciphering QR codes. We welcome your suggestions and faves in the comments, as well!
