Another QR reader for the BB (tested on a Torch) is WiMO... Downloaded and tested...

Worked fine when tested on a variety of 'url' QR codes e.g. see below (Note: the Bordeaux site that the QR code takes you to isn't mobile friendly, so a 'fail' there!). This software does take a photo and then attempts to decode it...

No luck with a few tries on 'sms' QR codes, none of them would read...

No apparent luck on 'free text' QR codes... The software appeared to read the code, but launched a blank browser session. However, when I looked in History, it appeared that it actually read the QR code, but just didn't know what to do with the output!!

The bottom line? This software works fine if all you are interested in is reading 'url' style QR code...A reader with basic capabilities only, not quite ready for prime time!
