Developer takes advantage of you
Downloaded this “FREE” app to use it for 10seconds immediately deleted it and didn’t think anything of it. A couple of days later I view my credit card activity and see I was charged over $30. Apparently I was auto-enrolled into a subscription. The developer makes it so that by pressing “continue” on the app after first downloading it enrolls you in a subscription. I downloaded the app again to cancel the subscription and there is an “X” in the top right of the screen upon starting up the app that is essentially the same color as the background so you cannot see it. The other option is “Continue” which you can’t miss and would click just to get to the actual app but that would mean subscribing. DON’T download.
Can’t get rid of without support
By Minnie Linda
I download this at my child’s project share where we needed a QR Reader to listen to a Podcast. It was chaotic at the event so I may have missed the warning that this was a paid app with automatic renewal, but I ended up having to have a long chat with Apple Support to get it cancelled. There were literally no options for doing so, only different increments of automatic renewals. In trying to figure out how to get out of this a friend found an article on shady developers that specifically highlighted this app. On top of the exorbitant fees I couldn’t cancel without outside help, the app didn’t even work when I needed it. I did end up being able to cancel the automatic renewal and get a refund, but it took more a couple of hours of frustration to do it.
Scam to Erroneously Charge My Card
By Letter K
I inadvertently purchased this app, and immediately went to settings to cancel it, but my iPhone would NOT allow me to cancel the purchase, because it shows a ZERO charge. It advertises that it is purchased, with a 3 day trial, afterwards my card will be charged.
In a separate review, another customer cited a similar experience, and 3 days later he was charged $30. So, to avoid the charge, I contacted Apple Support to help me cancel the purchase. After 40 minutes, Apple Support said they could not cancel the charge. Apple suspects that the developer will charge my card, NOT Apple.
How can the developer charge my card, when the developer does NOT have my credit card info? Only Apple has my credit card! Or did Apple share my credit card, with the developer? That’s the only way the developer could directly charge my card!
BottomLine Apple should be able to help me to resolve this... Apple is going to charge my card, NOT the developer. Apple needs to close the backdoor, so that this does not happen!
Hopefully, our complaints will prompt Apple to stop these erroneous charges to our cards!
Completely Unworkable. Did Not Work a Single Time
Rarely do I write reviews and the few times I have they were all fairly positive reviews. Nevertheless this complete piece of garbage App drove me to pop my “bad review cherry”. The app is entirely worthless and I feel like I was ripped off even though it was free. I scanned about 8 different pieces of merchandise which were all relatively popular items and all I got out of it each time was a full screen advertisement which I was required to close in order to view the pricing information. Unfortunately all that appeared was a blank screen. Same thing happened over and over with each of the 8 attempts and then I deleted the app and moved on to this review.
The sleaziest app I have ever seen!!
This app is hands-down the most scammy and sleazy app that I have EVER seen in the App Store. I literally want to go wash my hands after having used it knowing that I’m going to cancel it immediately. First of all being so shady about the app not being free is one problem, but $7.99 for a QR scanning app is highway robbery and that’s how you know the people that make this app are scammers to the highest degree. Scammers with no shame charge 7.99 for a QR scanning app but scammers who are trying to come up with a way of paying their rent would charge $.99. Be assured you will find other QR scanning apps very very easily for no cost whatsoever in the App Store the disgust I have for this app is overwhelming.
Not free, confusing interface tricking you into being charged
By dhuc nmtc ngs 125
This app gives you a big blue “Continue” button when you open it which automatically enters you into a subscription for which you will be charged. You have to hit a small pale X to not enter into payment. The designers of the app should make the choice to use the free version or upgrade to a paid version more transparent, and there should be a way to cancel the subscription within the app of course. There’s also no option to get a customer service number or email to ask about charges. Also iTunes should make it easier to unsubscribe.
Hidden Subscription Bill (WARNING)
By bebsie sivdie
Some restaurants require an app like this to view their menu. When you open an app, it is the users job to read & understand the prompts that you can accept and decline. Most people don’t read them, and this app takes advantage of that in order to get you to agree to a yearly subscription, and if you have your card already on your phone then it does not ask for card information. In other words you are automatically enrolled into a yearly subscription. They did nothing illegal (to my knowledge), but it is still a predatory and unethical method of gaining subscription. Don’t waste your money
Prices May Vary
Bought this once for work, used it once, then deleted it. Somehow, it continued to charge me for the following 6 months, twice a month for varying amounts each (fluctuating between $6-$13 dollars) I finally called iTunes and they said it was the same app (this one) that AUTOMATICALLY enrolled me into a subscription after a one-week free trial. There was no communication whatsoever about the subscription process and how it worked, as I only needed it in the one instance. And the fees for the subscription apparently vary week to week.
TLDR: DO NOT purchase this app. I honestly do not know if it’s legitimate. It literally stole about $70 from me over the course of 6 months.
Downloaded to see a QR, but it activated the Pro version which was only 3 days. Does not give ability to deny purchase. Auto charges for it. What the hell is the trial then, I should be asked to click a “purchase” button after the fake trial.
Now how to cancel when you don’t have iTunes.? Crap. Then having even to rate the app a 1 star when I want no stars. Giving a false 1 vote is ridiculous.
Scan and go...that quick and easy!
By COWBOYS' fan
Had a different app before and when getting my new phone I deleted several of my rarely used or inconvenient to use apps. Came across a reason to need my scan app and looked for a new one. Found this one, saw the rating, read the reviews, and took a chance by downloading and using. Wonderfully surprised and quite happy with it!
