    Cheers for the QR code reader… finding a good one without advertising is hard.

      Just an update. The "QR code" app is nice, but hardly a pro version.

      Very easy to use and looks nice. Clean and fast. The big issue for me is that when I need to replicate certain barcodes, I need to know the format that it is set out in. This reader gives me the barcode, but not the format, ie EAN_13, CODE_39, etc…

      It's worth getting Fdroid for this kind of stuff:

      Open Source Android Apps with their own store.

    What's the point of QR reader apps? The Google Lens app does the trick and is always free.

    Hot VPN Pro looks dodgy. Why does is need access to contacts, location etc?

    Otherwise few good apps there.

      Agree.

      Interested in thoughts on other good free ones - use Star VPN in Aus (when on public WiFi) and grab paid monthly ExpressVPN when travelling as can pick servers to watch Aus TV/Foxtel.

    For those of you who only scan QR codes occasionally and want a lighter solution (i.e. a Progressive Web App rather than a native one), check out https://qrcodescan.in/. You'll need a recent version of Android with a browser that supports PWAs.

    For those of you who don't know, a PWA is essentially a shortcut to a webpage with the browser controls cut off. Done properly, it behaves just like a native app, but it is a web page, so it's 1 codebase for all platforms, rather than having to maintain multiple branches of the same app for iOS, Android, Windows 10, etc and it takes up a lot less space to initially install (it will download more stuff on the first visit to allow offline functionality).

    Facebook has a PWA. Twitter has a PWA (as Twitter Lite). eBay is working on a PWA. Most of Google's Go version of their apps are also PWAs.
