It’s so comfortable when nearly all of the functions to work with QR-codes and barcodes are fitted in one application. Even if you don’t interact with the QR-codes too often, this app still has something to offer. For example, the function which allows you to compare prices by the barcode alone is a must-have, I think. However, there are some bugs in this application that have to be taken care of.
