The app starts with the main screen which contains the option to scan a code , search for a product, view all deals nearby or go to the settings. The second page shows the recently viewed products and the third and last page contains a guide. Guide means a page with information about things like beer, chocolate, oil, packaging etc.

This is not a killer feature in any way but definitely nice to have. Scanning and its results. For QR-encoded URLs, after detection, there's the option to open the link directly, to save it as a favourite or to share it in various ways.
Very neat and fast, but I was disappointed that the smaller QR code couldn't be decoded, even with the built-in digital zoom function and even with the code seemingly very crisp on my N8's display. When scanning the right hand printed out QR code which goes to an Android market deep link , BeeTagg crashed every time. Free in the Nokia Store.
Also somewhat quirky, in that once a URL has been decoded and an informational page loaded on the web, you can't get back to scan something else - you have to exit the application and then restart if needed. Plus the camera display seemed to have been stretched - QR codes were elongated rectangles and not squares!
Not showstoppers, but worth noting. On the plus side, ScanLife got the tricky magazine 1D code with the side code to confuse it and it handled the Android QR code, though the small QR code on the brochure eluded it, even though again it seemed to be crystal clear in the viewfinder. Mobiletag got off to a rocky start with me by asking me to wait while the GPS was fired up, to get my current location, followed by presenting a detailed profile dialog, of name, address, and other details. I dare say that these parameters are of help when finding a commercial product in a database later on after a successful recognition, but it's a heck of a lot more benefit to some agency somewhere to have all my personal information.
It's a bit of a privacy intrusion and it hits you immediately. With that out the way you can 'Skip' the dialog and you can turn off GPS tracking in Mobiletag's Settings later on , it's largely good news - the application acquired all my QR and 1D barcodes without any issue. Very quickly, too. The brochure QR code brought me straight to their web site, the web-printed QR code for a phone app started downloading the app and the Android install link popped up the appropriate text string as you might expect.
The 1D barcodes also scanned quickly, but in each case the codes didn't match anything in Mobiletag's product database, which is a bit disappointing - being able to capture and decode a barcode means nothing if the output is simply a long number and not a meaningful product link or description.

Still, both QR codes were captured and handled consummately, and this round-up is intended to be QR-centric so I'm still giving Mobiletag QRcode Scanner a qualified thumbs up. Also starting with a basic 'profile' page, along with a scary warning about sending SMS messages which turned out to be linked to the social 'Invite' function , NeoReader did get down to business quickly thereafter, unusually in landscape mode only.
There was fast recognition of all three QR codes being tried, including the very small brochure one.

However, as with BeeTagg, the Android Market link code crashed the application, which I'm sure is not meant to happen. However, the resulting code just gets popped up in your browser with links to try searching for the number in Google or Amazon, which is a bit feeble - there's no actual look-up of the code in a NeoReader database.
