    Does anyone know of an app like "barcode reader" that can decode qr codes from an image file rather than requiring the use of the camera?

    I ask because "app referrer" can send qr codes via SMS.. and it's a bit useless if there's no way to scan the qr code from the image on your phone.

    I've been just forwarding it to my gmail account and then scanning my computer screen. Needless to say.. this isn't ideal.

    I've searched high and low for a qr scanner that works for this purpose and only found "barcode generator/reader" But it seems that it only displays the text from the qr code. So if I scan the qr code for app referrer, I get market://search?q=pname:com.drathus.android.appreferer which doesn't linkify or allow me to go to the market or anything useful.

    Thanks for any suggestions.
