Have you ever been walking down the road and randomly see a QR code stuck somewhere with no real indication as to where it may lead? I have plenty of times and natural curiosity always has me reaching for my device to quickly scan it and find out where this curious QR code leads. Realistically, that's probably not the best idea considering you never really know where the code is going to go and it's pretty much no different than clicking on some phishing link in an email.
Knowing that is the case and knowing how curious folks can be, the developers at Max Secure Software have come up Max QR Scanner. The apps acts like any normal QR code scanning app may work but it has some additional features built in to help ensure you're never left wondering where a QR code is going to take you again. When you scan a QR code using the app, it checks the URL against a safe and non-safe database plus it shows you exactly what the QR code is be it a link, a PIN, a phone number or even plain text.
Additionally, the app also maintains a history of scanned items so if you happen to forget a link you visited or a PIN given to you or even a phone number, you can always go back and review the information once again. I can't see a huge number of folks diving in and making use of this app but if you're truly interested in an additional layer of security, it might be right your alley. Coming in at $.99 and available for BlackBerry 10 devices, you can find Max QR Scanner live in BlackBerry World right now.
