Additional BB QR readers - XI

Downloaded a new program, QR code scanner, by an outfit named Vimukti Technologies Pvt Ltd. This is not a free program, albeit running at a very modest $0.99. The main function is reading QR codes, though it also allows you to recommend it or contact support, both via e-mail...



Tried the software on a number of 'url' QR codes, with good success (see example below). It scans the QR code and does not take a picture...


Next, I tried the software with a 'free-text' and a 'sms' QR code. In each case it appeared to read something, because it stopped scanning... Unfortunately in each case it jumped to a blank screen, see below:


Note: these QR codes were "good" and I validated them using other programs. For example, the screen shots below show that they were able to be read by Barcode Assistant:


The bottom line? A solid, basic QR reader that works well on 'url' QR codes. However, given that there are a number of free QR reader programs out there that have much greater functionality, I can't recommend it...
