About Scanula

There's no denying it: QR codes aren't going away any time soon. However, scanning one is a pain, and viewing detailed information about the scanned object is often not possible. This is where Scanula comes in. Scanula is a clean, modern, and fast QR, data matrix, and barcode scanner. There are 3 ways of detecting a QR code:

  • Use the Scan tab and point the device‚Äôs camera at a QR code
  • Use the Scan tab and tap the photos icon in the top right and pick a photo from your photo library
  • Use the share sheet with a URL, webpage, or image, and choose the "Scan for QR Codes" action

When using the camera the application will also detect barcodes, data matrixes, and many other scannable codes. Scan results show detailed information about the scanned object, and is customised for various types of scanned content, such as showing a scanned location on a map, getting the balance of a bitcoin address, or viewing the details of a contact card.

All information can be easily shared via the built-in share sheet, or via generating a QR code allow others to scan it themselves. If your device supports handoff, you won't even have to use the share sheet to send URLs to your Mac.

Scanula also makes it easy to find, share, and view previous scan results from the History tab, which displays scan results in reverse scan-date order, and can be easily filtered by type of object scanned.
