Additional BB QR readers - XXV

 
Another free QR code reader is QR Scanner and Generator by Newgen Photographics.


As always the first stop post installation is at the QR Code Quality Standards Test v1.02 The application decodes the QR codes directly (and not after taking a picture). Nice and speedy it decoded several 'flavors' of QR codes handily - phone number, SMS text, email address, web address, YouTube video. It did have some issues with vEvents and vCards, and once the QR codes were read they were not all fully integrated with the corresponding BB applications - while the email launched, others (urls, addresses, phone numbers) did not integrate with the corresponding BB applications but directed you to upgrade to the Pro' version ($0.99).

 
 
 
 
 
 
 


On the QR generator side it will generate the QR code flavors shown below. It is nicely integrated with the BB address book. One small issue - while generating a MeCard  or vCard a number of fields are mandatory... Most of them seem OK but requiring a web address for the MeCard seems excessive (you can not generate a Mecard without it...)

 
 


The bottom line? A quick and versatile application. Unfortunately for full integration you need to go to the paid app, and given the excellent and completely free competitors out there I'm not sure it is worth it (even at the bargain price of $0.99!)
