Resource Page: Scanner Apps for Smartphones & Tablets

barcode qr scanner apps Smartphones and tablets are becoming an indispensable tool for many Americans. They provide convenient access to email, the Internet, personal contacts, banking, shopping, weather, and much more.  Most people are familiar with applications (better known as 'apps') that can be downloaded on your phone to serve a specific function, but perhaps not as many people know about apps that allow a smartphone or tablet to be used as a bar code scanner or a QR code scanner. 

Scanner apps that scan 1D bar codes, like you might see at the grocery store, can make shopping and saving more convenient.  QR codes are a popular way for businesses or other organizations to provide easy access to information, loyalty perks, or other valuable digital content, so a QR code scanner app can be a handy tool as well.  Here is a collections of barcode and QR scanner reviews and resources.
