I have been looking for a free and working QR code reader for a while. QR Journal does a great job. Runs under Big Sur as well as Ventura. 5 stars from me.

v2 is able to generate QR codes, great! There's one flaw that was already present in former versions but has worsen: when you resize the window, chances are that it won't display correctly or at all at next run. In that case, you can find it in the menu and tinker the size hoping to find one that will be ok for the next time... :-(

Finally a QR decoder that is able to use the iSight camera on Snow Leopard! (What I've found so far was for Lion only.) And it just works. Thanks a lot!
