Optiscan Optiscan – iPhone App of the Week This is a regular feature of the blog looking at various Apps available.

This week’s App is Optiscan. Scan any QR code quickly and easily using your devices camera and Optiscan.Create your own QR codes to share contacts, web addresses, text messages, phone numbers or locations with others.Contrary to some reviews, it IS possible to create geo-location codes – use the ‘Note’ option to type (or copy/paste) the information in.
