There are many QR code reader/scanner apps for iPhone but most of them lack quality user-friendly functionality. That’s why most of the available QR code reader apps simply don’t impress users. How about adding QR Code reader to the Camera app of your iPhone to help you share web links and other information quickly?

QR Mode is an excellent Cydia tweak for iOS 8 that adds QR functionality to the stock Camera app of your iPhone. This tweak is capable of recognizing all popular QR Code types. As a result, users can scan any code with much ease from the Camera app itself. It has the support of many QR Code types such as, Text, URL, vCard, SMS, Email Address, Phone Number and Location.
