    Default Locating QR And Bar Code Apps That Came With Moto X

    Device: Motorola Moto X
    OS: Kit Kat
    Issue: A few days ago, while investigating my new Moto X phone, I happened upon the ability to scan bar codes and, I believe, QR codes, using the camera. I had not downloaded any such apps and they must have been part of the system that came with the phone.

    Of course, I have forgotten how to locate those functions.

    Can anyone advise where I can find them on my phone?

    In the App manager (Settings/Apps) there should be a few tabs on the top part allowing to select between "downloaded" "running" and "all". If you ditched some of them and want them back a search for motorola on the Playstore should yield a partial list.

    Could it be part of the camera software ? I would try launching the camera and see if it supports the function.

    If it doesn't you can still install any one of those on Playstore. I like (It also does QRs) and there's also which is a little more complete.

    I've examined the camera and can't find the apps but I know the camera is the key to finding what I am looking for.

    Thanks for the links; the apps get good reviews. But I want to stick with the Moto X app(s) that came with the phone; I only need to locate them.

    Did you use the "" ? Perhaps that's the QR code reading memory you have ?

    I don't think there is a QR reader that comes with the phone. I just went over the Motorola and the only mention of QR is in the instruction for migration, where it says to use your old phone to scan the QR code on the moto X. I then searched the Playstore, and nothing related to QRs shows up on the .

    A real shame, I like Moto apps, they are typicaly nimble and don't demand excessive permissions. I miss it's dialer app from my old Moto phone. I currently use the app on my Sony phone...

    I can't really say I used a QR app but I definitely used a bar code reader app. It's there somewhere. I will wait a few days to see what else develops on this thread and if I then have to, I'll download a suitable app from the Google play store.

    This is my first smartphone so I have to proceed slowly.

    Thanks again for your efforts.

    I can relate. Even just changing from one Android handset to another means an adaptation period, even for the very familiar-to-Android crowd.

    That said you don't have to fear or hesitate to install new stuff from the Playstore. Although many of the onboard Vanilla apps that come with phones are very good, many are also very basic and lack many useful features. Try looking at this thread you may make some interesting finds.

    Thanks. I finally installed pic2shop from the Google Play store. There are many things to like about it but what I appreciate most is its ability to identify the bar code/QR code immediately upon the camera being pointed at the code. To me that is the most important feature of a scanner. I'm told by a reliable source that it's all in the coding of the driver; some scanners have better drivers than others.

    Thanks, but I'm very happy with Pic2shop and Barcode Scanner. Each work well.
