What is Scanula?
Scanula is a QR scanner for iOS. While there are a lots of other QR scanners out there, Scanula is unique because it takes advantage of modern iOS features, can understand more scanned objects than other apps, and features an action extension to scan QR codes from images and websites within other apps.
The idea that sparked the creation of Scanula was the thought that it should be possible to detect QR codes in an image without having to ues a QR scanner on another device. Once the action extension was created, it made sense to create a full iOS app.
While the action extension is still available, the full iOS app is very advanced, and even has the ability to scan saved images without leaving the app.

Example QR Codes
Reviewing Scanula is slightly trickier than many iOS apps due to the nature of its use meaning that it doesn't see a huge amount of on-screen time. Due to this, some example codes are available at https://scanula.com/codes/.
