    Never had a Touch with a camera before, so when I got this iPad 2 I went looking for a QR code reader. There are several in the app store but Qrafter is free and had good reviews so I downloaded it and it works perfectly, even though it's listed as an itouch app and there were no QR code readers shown for the iPad. Gonna go post a rave for it in the app store now.

    There is QRReader and Qrafter free from the app store and they work fine on the iPad2.

    RedLaser will read all kinds of bar codes, including QR codes.

    There's a very simple, quick app called Scan. It does both bar and QR codes with minimal fuss.

    I want to use this, but am not at all savvy. I tried to hover my barcode a little above the quivery line and tapping the focus thing in the lower right and it tells me no photo found. Then I tried actually placing the barcode on the iPad and tapping with no photo result. How do I get. The app to scan the barcode? I should say that I don't know if I have iPad 3 or not but only bought it about six weeks ago and keep it updated.

    Hi Barbara - welcome to the forum! :) Might want to give us the iPad model you own (camera resolution is different - my iPad 2 works w/ these scanners but will likely improve when I upgrade to the iPad Air soon). You might also want to tell us which 'scanner' app(s) you have tried - most of these simply open up the rear camera and present a 'box' to surround the code - some do just barcodes, others QR codes, and some both - I have 4 of these apps on my iPad, but would suggest just going to the App Store and search on 'bar code scanner' - there will be plenty of hits; many are free or just a US$ dollar or two - just give some a try. Good luck and let us know your results - Dave

    Thanks for the quick and kind reply. I don't know how to locate the model, bot I do know it is IOS7 current. I'm trying to use Ibotta and red laser. I get the box okay and the line but don't know how to activate the scanner.

    Hi again - as to your iPad model, appearances are clues, e.g. small vs. larger screen (Mini or Standard size); thickness for the standard models, i.e. the new Air is thinner; and type of power charger adapter - 30-pin dock vs. Lightning connectors; BUT, your model number is on the back (in small letters) and can be checked HERE; finally, by going to Settings > General > About, the model & serial numbers of your device are listed (among a lot of other details) - these can be looked up online for more specific details

    As to the two apps mentioned, I see that these are for shopping; neither are on my iPad 2 but I did DL RedLaser just to have a look - it is optimized for the iPhone; by hitting the red scan button (w/ a lightening bolt) @ the bottom middle, the rectangular box w/ the red line opens, which also activates the scanner; you then hover over a barcode or QR code - see my attached image of a image (sorry for the blurriness but due to the lousy 0.7 MP back camera on my iPad 2) - simply focus the red bar on the code desired and the scan should happen automatically. P.S. make sure that your back camera (upper back under power button) is not being blocked - let us know if these directions help. Dave :)
