Fast and accurate QR code scanning comes to iOS with Qrious

Edinburgh, United Kingdom – Point Release Software is proud to announce the immediate availability of Qrious 1.4. Qrious, previously known as Unboxed, is a QR (quick response) code reader for iPhone 3GS or later, including the new iPhone 4S, and Apple’s iPod touch.

Point Release Software created Qrious to be an attractive, friendly and easy to use QR code reader while not compromising on scanning speed or accuracy. Qrious works great with any iOS device featuring an auto-focus camera. All you need to do is point the device at a QR code and Qrious will automatically begin to focus on and scan any QR code without further action.

When you scan a code with Qrious you can instantly act on the results of that code by choosing from a range of options, all based on the results of the scan. These can be to visit a URL, send an email, call a phone number or a number of other actions. Qrious also includes tips to aid in successful QR code scanning.

Qrious also brings QR code recognition and reading to your Photos app photos. This allows anyone to scan a QR code from an email, image on the Internet, or a photo, and read those QR codes without needing to be where the original code appears.

Qrious is available in the English, French, German and Italian languages.

* Read codes from the camera or the photo library
