And to continue this streak of good news, QR Droid Version 5.3 launched today!

We’ve been back at the labs making more user-requested improvements, and we think you’ll really like what we cooked up for this version.  Here are some fun facts about this latest release of our app:

QR Droid 5.3…

• is now available on Google’s Nexus 7 tablet!
• allows you to create and scan two new code types: “PayPal payments”  and “WiFi”
• uses revolutionary new XQR technology for massive Plain Text QR Codes
• includes configurable “Scan” options: now you can choose cross-hairs and button opacity
• is compatible with both front or rear cameras, including non-auto focus cameras
• is more secure than ever; codes containing USSD commands are never opened automatically, preventing remote wipe attacks
• requires two new permissions for increased functionality: WAKE_LOCK permission [supports “Inbox” and “Feedback” options, using Google's messaging system, which link directly to DroidLa’s support team] and VIBRATE permission [added vibration response after scanning]

Thanks to our loyal users once again, for continuing to make our app the success it is today.  You can download the latest version of QR Droid here and don’t forget to rate us in the Google Play store!

iPhone users, we have something for you too!  If you’re not on an Android device, never fear, we have an  iOS-friendly solution, Zapper Scanner, which works on iPhone, iPod and iPad too.  You can download QR Droid’s sister product, Zapper Scanner, by clicking on this link.  Same great app, different operating system!
