Sharing a contact as a QR Code?
I've recently noticed that on both the HTC Magic (aka MyTouch) and Samsung Galaxy S it's possible to share contacts details via QR Codes.
Both the aforementioned smartphones had the latest Barcode Scanner (by ZXing Software) installed. It's simply a matter of going into the address book, hit the menu button and select the "share contact as barcode". As a result, a fullscreen QRCode is displayed containing all the relevant details of the selected contact, ready to be scanned and saved by another smartphone.
Now, why can't my Desire do the same?
I have Barcode Scanner 3.51 installed, but the "share as barcode" options is nowhere to be found in my address book/contacts list.
The only workaround I found is to share contacts directly from inside B.S., but (other than being slower) this method shows non-grouped contacts which is a PITA.
Is this a Sense-related matter?
What about yours?
Thanks a lot!
