Default How do I scan a WR code with this phone?

I searched the forum, and found either old references to older smartphones that needed programs downloaded to do it, or read one recent post saying that yes, Android phones can scan QR's... but he didn't write how.

I have had no luck finding anything to scan one with, save for the camera which only took pictures of the code, lol. I don't want pictures of the code...

Barcode Scanner, from the Market, does a good job with QR codes. (But not with plain barcodes.)

Oh, so it can't do it with the stock functions? I figured all smartphones sold these days would be able to read them without downloading apps
And thank you for the reply!


RIghto, got it.

Phones don't come with barcode readers. But, since there are loads of good free ones, that's not a problem.

Just a little note for anyone else looking at QR scanners for the precedent: no auto focus on the camera means small QR codes are hard to read. Ive never had a problem with the bigger ones but when they're about 1" x 1" i cant seem to read them 100%.

Which barcode program did you get to work? I've never had a problem getting a QR program to work, but I've never found a barcode program that reads correctly - and many of them don't read anything at all.

I suspect he's either scanning very large barcodes or just getting lucky. The issue's with the camera (as you probably know). It's just not good enough to give software a decent look at a barcode. I can't imagine there's a software solution that's 100% effective.
