New logo modes: round and background
Previously, when you added a logo to your QR code, it was small and assumed to be square so a square around it was cleared of the QR code modules.
Now you can make the logo round, make it the background of your QR code, or both. This enables some pretty unique designs!
There's now also a "scannability test" you can click to very quickly check if your design is likely to be reliable. This is especially important if you're using a background logo!

More QR code types
You can now use Hovercode to create more types of QR codes. In addition to link QR codes and PDF QR codes, you can now create the following types.
When people scan these, they can instantly save your contact details.
This type of QR code takes the scanner to your app in the Apple App Store or the Android Play Store, depending on the device they are scanning with. No need to create a QR code for each app store anymore!
Send a message
When scanned, this pops up a ready to send SMS message on the scanners phone.
Send an email
When scanned, this pops up a ready to send email on the scanners phone.
When scanned, this prompts the scanner to call a number.
This is a fun one. Use a QR code to let people easily connect to your Wifi network. Guests love it.
There are so many creative ways to use these new types of QR code! Let us know if you have any feedback or ideas.

Improved analytics, with charts
We have charts!
When we launched you could only see your QR code analytics one QR code at a time. This was helpful for seeing how an individual QR code was performing, but it wasn't convenient for comparing QR codes or campaign performance, especially if you were using multiple QR codes per campaign.
You can now see an overview of how all of your QR codes are performing and you can filter by date range and tag. This makes it so much easier to quickly understand which QR campaigns and QR codes are performing better than others.

PDF to QR code
We've been asked time and time again if we can support QR codes that don't just open links. PDFs were the most common request of this type, so that's what we tackled first.
We're planning on adding more types soon as well as adding some improvements to how the PDF QR code type works. For now, it works well as an easy way to create QR codes that open PDF files when scanned. What QR codes types should we focus on next? Let us know.

A new version of the API
We released a super simple API a few months ago to test the waters. Now that it's been used and we know more about how people expect it to work, we've released V2 of the API with a whole bunch of improvements.
When you get a QR code with the API, you can now see the "total_scans" and "unique_scans" so that you can see how they are performing.
There are also new endpoints for getting a QR codes tracking data, adding tags to QR codes, and more.
We are planning on adding a few more endpoints, so please let us know if you have feedback.
