    Hello GoMo Team,

    I have tried quite a few of these readers with differing results.
    However, there is one that you have forgotten to mention and that is the QRdeCODE Application from Denso Wave the inventor of the QR code?

    It is available in the App Store for a small fee and allows you to create your own QR code as an image.
    Thank you.

    i-nigma is a powerful mobile barcode company. They have set-up processes that are user friendly, which can be helpful. QR Codes are taking publication digital. Advertisers finally have a way to track campaigns. QR Codes can also be customize by adding a logo or bright contrasting colors to individualize each code.
