    Is there any app that lets you generate QR Codes and save them that works on the droid?
    (I don't just want to do contacts, I would like to do urls and text strings too)

    (not the drhu one, it doesn't seem to work)

    sadly it doesn't appear to do plain text unless it's in an app I can share it from.
    (which is not just entering plain text)

    I just use Barcode Scanner to generate QR codes. You can generate QR codes from URLs, apps, whatever text is in your clipboard, and contacts. The only hiccup is that it doesn't give you an option to just save the QR code to your device, but you can send it to Snaptic, Picasa, email it to yourself, etc. As well, the 3Banana app creates QR codes of your notes.

    And FYI, the above mentioned easyshare app allows you to share anything to a QR code, not just apps.

    Dont know whether it is exactly what you are after, but I have used www.qrstuff.com to create QR codes.

    It lets you do text, URLs, telephone numbers, contact details, google map locations, etc.

    You can then email/copy the image that is created and save it to your phone.

    How do you read a qr code if it's sended to your phone by mail by example? you have the attachment in gmail and is a qr code, but barcode scanner don't decrypt from stored files.

    There is a program for decoding qr codes from files? i have a friend who send me files with qr codes, and i have to send to my PC, put the image on the screen and point with the camera with barcode scanner to decode, maybe a program can decode directly from files.

    Quickmark QR Code app is great, reads and allows you to create text QR codes "and" save them as well. Just click on "Share" and you will see option to create QR from text and go from there. Love this appl

    Hi,

    I know I'm late but this is how you can solve this:

    - Download "QR Droid" from the market
    - Open email with QR image attached and download it
    - Open downloaded image from notification bar
    - Select Menu > Share > Decode with QR Droid

    Let me know if that helped you
