    QR code question!

    Advertisement



    Hey all I just got a pearl and LOVE it, I will be heading to Japan in a few weeks and I heard that qr codes are the rage there (I can't post URLs just go to wikipedia and punch in "qr codes" basically its a 2D code that you point your phone’s camera at and it reads a website or a message, its popular in magazines and in public places for advertising purposes, it can also be used to access data printed on business cards, its virtually unheard of in the states. I wanted to know if anyone knew about software that can read QR codes for my new pearl?

    Re: QR code question!

    I actually found a reader for my mac just bring up good and type 'qr code mac' the first link will bring you to a website called anti-mega and click on the phrase "I also found a really good QR code reader for the mac" the program is something like 7mb its in japanese but the pictures make it really easy to understand, and then if your a real geek like me I went over to google and got some random QR codes to decode with the program. Thanks for the welcome all!!

    Re: QR code question!

    Is there a specific website where we can download this or something? Or maybe a trial version?

    Re: QR code question!

    I can't post URL s (yet) so I will just give instructions:
    if you are on a mac look at my instructions above the mac software will allow you to take screen shots of the QR code and, if your on a pc and have a webcam of somesort go to google and type in "QuickMark for WebCam" click on the first link and download the software. Once you have either (mac or pc) one set up you will need to find some QR codes to read. Go to google again and click images and type in "QR code" you will get lots of images of black and white box looking things. If your on a mac simply take a screen shot using the software or if your on a pc, point your webcam at the screen or print off the image and it will read whatever data it sees. OR you can make your own, again go to google type in 'QR code generator' and hit the first link.. I think I am going to make my icon my BB id coded in QR hehehe

    well if you still need one i found one randomly when scouring getjar.com but no guarantees that it works.
