[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - ShopSavvy, the world's leading mobile shopping platform, today announced it has completely revamped and refreshed its QR Code Reader and Scanner 3.0 application to give mobile-device users access to even more information about products and retailers an additional avenue to leverage a powerful technology.
The update of the iOS application means users can scan a QR code to obtain URLs, contact information, calendar events and other data stored within the Quick Response codes.

ShopSavvy's QR Code Reader and Scanner is among the most popular utility applications of its kind available through the iTunes App Store, and has been downloaded some 1.2 million times.
"QR codes are a great tool for delivering information to consumers anywhere they want it and anytime they need it. That's why it's so important for ShopSavvy to provide this superior, multidimensional QR code experience to empower shoppers as well as businesses," said Rylan Barnes, co-founder and chief technology officer of ShopSavvy. "We look forward to bring these innovations to ShopSavvy itself very soon."

* Sharing, saving and printing of QR codes
* On-screen display of QR Codes and barcodes
