Ankara, Turkey – Mobile users looking for new ways to access and generate certain 2D code types, now have the ability to do so using the Qrafter Pro tool, available now for $2.99 on the App Store. The application is capable of reading QR Code, Data Matrix, Aztec Code and also barcodes, and stands out among other QR code readers due to its compliance with all URL standards.
Among its many capabilities, Qrafter Pro includes a valuable QR Code generator that can prove beneficial for businesses required to create them from scratch. The application can change the colors of the QR Code images, save them to any photo library, email them as PNG and SVG image files, share them on social media sites and print them using Air Print on iOS. In addition to the Pro version, the free Qrafter app is also now available on iTunes. Qrafter does not generate codes like Qrafter Pro, although it is a full-featured QR code scanner that is easy to use with any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The Pro Pack can easily be added to Qrafter as an in-app purchase to add code generation abilities and other sophisticated features, becoming on par with Qrafter Pro.
The app was created with security in mind, and users can protect their 2D codes with passwords. Additionally, Qrafter Pro includes a unique security feature not found in any other QR code app that protects against malware or phishing sites. “QR codes can easily be used to obfuscate a malicious URL,” said developer Kerem Erkan. “Yet no other QR code app has addressed this critical issue. With Qrafter Pro, when a QR code that includes a URL is scanned, the URL is unwrapped and then scanned with the Google Safe Browsing API to check for malware or phishing sites.”
Erkan, an IT professional and developer with 13 years of industry experience, has delivered several useful and popular apps, and uses only open source applications and operating systems. He launched his QR code business as a hobby in 2006, and wrote Qrafter himself after trying out several QR code apps on the app store, only to find that there were no standards-compatible and reliable apps on the market. The resulting Qrafter app has been used to scan and generate millions of QR codes.
The application excels in file downloading and conversion, to be the most accessible and compatible code reader and generator app available. For example, Qrafter includes a vCard (.vcf) and iCalendar (.ics) file downloader which can download the files using Safari or the application’s own internal web browser. Qrafter Pro can also parse everything from names to events, in addition to downloading contact photos.
“The application surpasses potential for pure organization, it also has possible small business applications,” said Erkan. “For example, Qrafter can scan bar codes and send the raw data to any email address. It’s a very simple and cost-effective method of conducting routine inventory assessments.” The success of the application stems from its ability to interpret many different types of content, including URLs, business cards and maps for example. Qrafter is also able to be integrated into other apps for the most versatile solution whatever the task is. Currently, Qrafter is widely used in Japan as well as many schools around the United States. Recently, it has been used as a part of the program in an MBA class at Rutgers University.
