Turn your phone into a QR Code scanner and start connecting the physical world to your mobile device. Want to scan QR Codes with your phone? Tired of using other scanner apps that fail to scan a QR code with your phone? This QR code scanner is known for its reliability and easy to use features. We liked using this QR code scanner because it was able to read all different types of QR codes which not every Blackberry QR code app can read. In addition it this application is free.

QR Code Nowby David Jones II US$0.99 USD Download 3.5 out of 5 stars
Make a QR Code on your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ with QR Code Now. You don’t even need an internet connection. The QR code is generated locally so you don’t need to worry about some unknown website privy to your QR codes. Share phone numbers, text, email, and contact cards(MECARD format) with your associates, colleagues and friends. The only reason that we did not like this QR code reader for the blackberry was because it lacked some features that we enjoyed in other blackberry QR code reader apps.
Pros: You can make QR codes but with out tracking
Cons: Cost, lack of features

CertainTeed QR Code Reader FREE Download 1 out of 5 stars
The CertainTeed QR code reader scans and reads 2D QR codes in real time by simply pointing the BlackBerry® camera at a QR code and taking a picture of it. We tried this QR code reader once on a Blackberry storm and Blackberry curve and it stopped working after we tried to open it after just using it once.
Pros: We will check back on this one.
Cons: It did not work after using it once

Now, scan the QR codes with your phone any time using this application. It will not scan regular UPC product barcodes. We tried using this QR code scanner / reader with our Blackberry’s and where unable to get it to scan QR codes. Maybe we where missing something but after reading more reviews on this QR code scanner we saw similar problems that other people where having. This app was also buddy on our Blackberry and crashed a few times during testing.
Pros: Cool red scan thingie
Cons: It crashes, does not scan QR codes all the time.
