QR Journal - QR Scanning on a Mac Computer
Looking for a way for students using Mac laptops to scan QR codes? QR Journal is a great free option.
To install QR Journal:
1. On a Mac, go to the Applications folder and choose App Store.
2. Do a search for QR Journal. (or use this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/qr-journal/id483820530?mt=12)
3. "Buy" the app using your AppleID.
Once it’s installed, open the app from your Applications folder. You'll see a button that says “Scan”. That opens a window that is using the laptop's built in webcam. Hold the QR code in front of the camera and it will scan the code. Super easy!
Tip: To make any Mac app easy to access, you can choose to keep it in the dock even when it's not open. Just right-click on the app icon in the dock (when the app is open) and choose "Options" and "Keep in Dock".
