    QR codes - Android AND iOS.

    I post this here since I don't want to post the same topic in both Android and iOS forums..

    Have anyone experience with using QR codes in their apps?

    Example of the functionality I want:

    - Someone see a poster for a concert. The poster has a QR code.
    - The person scas the code.
    - Your app installs / starts.
    - Your app downloads the concertinfo from your server.

    From google-searches I find that this should be possible in Android using intents, and Fusion supports intents so I suppose Android is all good. I also find that iOS supports this, but I don't know if that bit is supported by Fusion.

    Have anyone successfully used QR-codes for iOS or Android in this way?

    Hm, I can't see how those examples may help me. Doesn't the QR Scanner object only scan QR codes? That's not what I'm after. Like I tried to explain above, people will scan using their own device with any scanner app, and my app should get installed and download content based on what has been scanned by that app. That's not what those examples are showing, or am I missing something here?

    this basic example allow you to scan, so you can do is to scan any type and see if the object is capable of bring any information from those bar code, eg: I just scan a QR (directly from screen of my laptop and it worked) also test all the below type and seems to be doing OK.
    The current object using zbar libs implements decoding for QR, EAN-13, UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, Code 128 and Code 39.

    Thanks for the help, but I don't need my app to be able to scan... I want my app to trigger and handle the QR code when another app scans a QR code that I created. From what I gather from google this should be possible.. or?

    For a standard case, the QR Code contains an alphanumeric datatype with an URL inside. The scanner app type will provide you this
    metadata. For example on Android, the easiest is to use QR/Bar Scan Code object as suggested by Fernando and use string result to open
    the URL. If you expect any other app to scan the code, you can use intent.
    For example Intent "com.google.zxing.client.android.SCAN" with extra string "SCAN_MODE" = "QR_CODE_MODE" if you do not want to scan
    anything else as QRCode. extra strings "SCAN_RESULT" and "SCAN_RESULT_FORMAT" will give you the result and you can check the expected
    format.
    It seems that you want that your app opens and shows infos when any scanner app is used. This way, I do not know how to do.

    Thanks Conceptgame. Yeah, it's the latter I want. I was hoping this was an easy and common thing to do, but it seems not. I thought that was the main purpose with QR codes, but I guess I was wrong. Anyway, I read that QR codes is only used by a minority of mobile owners (10-20% have used it at least once, about 5% on regular basis) and never got the popularity it was meant to get, so I suppose I can just as well not include them in my project, at least for now.

    There are a lot of barcode types. Which one do you want to read? They are more or less supported depending of their type.
