    Wanted: QR Code Reader for Curve

    Advertisement



    Ok, so these QR codes are like the hottest thing in japan. And I wanna be able to read them with my blackberry. Does anyone know of a QR code reader for Blackberry? I've searched and can't find anything.

    Anyone who doesn't know what a QR code is, it's like a barcode, except it's 2 dimensional, where a barcode is 1 dimensional. You may have seen them on UPS shipping labels for instance. They look like this:

    This code happens to be a link to my website.

    Works! benmarvin.com!
    only displays on half the screen, because it's made for the 8100, but it seems to work.

    Not for me though. On my 8100 I get "Unsupported media type:application/vnd.rim.cod"

    Any ideas how I can get past this?

    Works OK on my 8300. Did you dowload OTA or DM? OTA worked for me. As stated above, it only uses half the screen cuz it is for the 8100, but what would happen if I downloaded the 8700 version?

    Just deleted my old version and dowloaded the 8707 version OTA. Shows full screen on the 8300.

    Re: QR Code Reader for Curve

    I downloaded OTA and that worked. But now another problem. I take the photo, it works fine, them by 8100 asks me if it's OK to connect (to what?? not sure...maybe the URL embedded in the QR code from this thread), and there she hangs. Forever. I deleted the software, reinstalled, tried reading another QR code, and same thing, The photos are actually captured and stored on by media card - no problem - but Jaxo freezes. This happens whether I say YES or NO to when it asks if it's OK to connect.

    Any ideas?

    Re: QR Code Reader for Curve

    I got a Pearl a couple of months ago. I downloaded Jaxo's code, had same kind of problems. Sent a mail to "info" at their site. Those French guys were really nice, friendly... and helpful. As far as I remember, problem was related to the resolution of my pearl camera...

    As for QR Code reader or generator, here is a good site. Share with you all. I have only used the ASP.NET QR Code barcode generator SDK there. I think it's good. It also has many qr code readers, like C# QR Code barcode reader, etc.
