    There are little square bar code looking things that I see associated with different apps for the Eris... Is there some way to scan them to download the program??

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    there is a app called barcoder reader. get it from the market. the square codes are called QR codes.

    Like Caddy said, they're QR codes.

    You can generate your own here: QR-Code Generator

    But yes, you scan them and it'll bring up a URL, some text, a phone number, etc for you to quickly go to.

    Main benefit IMO is sites that have URL's to download stuff on your phone, it's quicker and easier to scan the barcode on your PC monitor than to type it all out in your phone's browser.

    yes it is, go to the market and get the barcode scanner app, search "barcode"

    Barcode Scanner is compatible with the Hero.

    AFAIK any Android phone with a camera that uses autofocus can scan the barcodes.

    Ok I'm missing something. I dl'd it but don't know how to use it. Are you guys typing in a text message then copying it and sharing it using shareqr?

    Open the Barcode scanner in your phone. Some to this site on your computer. Scan the square barcodes with Barcode Scanner and you will see the text.
