If you’ve seen any of our printed materials, or have looked at our blog archives lately, you’ll know we’re all about QR codes! There are SO many free QR reader apps out there, we recommend downloading more than one in case you have a stubborn code. Our personal favorite (so far) has been the i-nigma reader.

I-nigma turns your camera into a sophisticated barcode reader. Thanks to exceptionally quick and robust scanning, it is regularly ranked as top performer in this category.
