Shortcut offers you the shortest way from the real world to the online universe. It seamlessly combines image recognition and QR Code scanning in one app.


Shortcut uses ultra-fast image-recognition technology. It connects real-world objects such as magazines, newspapers, billboards, products and other Shortcut-enabled items with a cool online experience. Shortcut was first to seamlessly combine image recognition and QR Code scanning in one app. Just point the camera at the object. Shortcut will automatically detect whether it is a QR Code or an enabled image and brings you directly to the dedicated online experience.


- Automatically remembers the scans in your mobile history and optionally on Evernote
