QR Code Generators

On my Mac I use the iQR codes – QR Code Art Studio – Marek Hrušovský to generate QR Codes, I really like the batch creation option (extra in-app purchase), check out my QR Code Bookshelf post and QR Code Bookshelf web site for an example of how I used the batch processing to make over 1000 custom QR codes in minutes. 


New feature: Create a  QR code and change the URL  later (Dynamic QR code generator), also gives 2 week tracking data! QR verification now provides better results. It is not free but worth every penny.
