  • I would highly recommend YeeScan for your QR code scanner needs. This QR code reader is fast and has the sharing capability. I love the way that this can be simply shared with my friends via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram while on the go. You can even generate your own QR code. And you will not be annoyed for any pop ups as this is ad-free. You can visit the links below and discover how awesome this app is.
