QR Code Scanner

QR Stuff introduces the QR code scanner as its newest feature in the website. Now, you can generate, design, and scan QR codes without having to download any external applications or software. The new QR Stuff QR code scanner is available in both desktop and mobile.

Why Use A QR Code Scanner

Your QR codes — the mobile phone readable barcodes that generally consist of black and white squares, rounded squares, or circles, and sometimes with colors — need a QR code scanner to work. A QR code contains information such as a phone number, an SMS or email message, contact details, or sharing videos. Simply put, users can be directed to the particular information embedded through pointing a mobile phone or tablet at it.

The scanning device will respond by opening up the correct application on the phone to handle the encoded data or information. Once you have generated the QR code using an online tool such as QRStuff.com, you will receive the code either in digital or printed copies but there is a need for a scanner to realize its function, otherwise it will just be a plain code.

Scan QR Codes

Downloading a mobile phone application or purchasing a software online that scans the QR codes will provide you with the bridge that connects the QR code to the information it holds. However, this remains to be tedious and sometimes may even intervene with the content of the QR code, as some apps do.

Now, QR Stuff introduces the QR code scanner embedded within our website — yes, exactly the same place where you create your QR codes — to make things a lot easier. Using this new feature, you do not need to download a separate app, and there’s no need to sign-up to use the scanner. It is offered for free users, and of course, our paid subscribers can gain access to this feature as well.

How QR Stuff QR Code Scanner Works

QR code scanners work hand in hand with QR codes, and make all the difference by using the most efficient tool around. With QR Stuff’s newest feature, you have a one-stop place to generate these codes, and at the same time, make them work right after you are done creating them.

The scanner works and complies with the scanning standard, which means it can scan all standard QR codes. You scan the QR code and get a clickable link.

How To Scan A QR Code

  1. Go to www.qrstuff.com. Select “Scan” from the menu just above the QR code generator.
  2. You will be directed to the QR code scanner page. Note that the user needs to allow permission to access the device camera to allow the scanner capture the QR code ready to be scanned. The access permission only happens once, by the first time the scanning feature is used.
  3. Simply point the camera to the QR code to be scanned, and you will automatically be directed to the information it holds. For instance, your Website URL QR code will take you to the webpage embedded in the code.

NOTE: Another great advantage of the QR code scanner is letting the users enable them on both their desktop and mobile devices. It works using Chrome and Safari, so it will also be compatible with Android, and iPhone iOS 11 and onward.

Try It On Mobile

QR Code Scanner

Use the QR Stuff QR Code Scanner on mobile just like accessing apps. All you have to do is create a shortcut of the scanner page and save it on your device’s home screen.

For Android users, simply go to the QR Code Scanner page on Chrome and click the three-dotted icon found on the upper right hand corner of the mobile browser. Select “Add To Home Screen,” and you will be able to enter a name for the shortcut. The icon will appear on your home screen.

For iOS users, launch Safari and go to the scanner page. Tap the Share button found on the toolbar represented by a rectangle with an arrow pointing upward. Tap the Add To Home Screen icon in the Share menu, and you’ll be prompted to enter a name for the shortcut. The icon will appear on your home screen.Tap the shortcut icon to go to QR Stuff QR Code Scanner.

Google Maps QR Codes

Posted: April 15th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General | No Comments »

QR Codes For Google Map Locations

Our free Google Maps QR codes allow quick and easy access to a Google Maps address or location by simply scanning a QR code. Whether it’s about reaching a destination, locating a business, or highlighting an attraction or point of interest, our Google Maps QR codes will help your visitors, customers or friends find you.

How To Create A Google Maps QR Code

Create a Google Maps QR code that will help your customers find your business or event, highlight the location of a tourist attraction or point of interest, or even show your friends how get to your party. Just enter the location and a QR code-connected map will be automatically created for you.

Google Map QR Codes

  1. Go QRStuff.com and select “Google Maps Location” as your data type in Column 1.
  2. In Column 2 specify where the location or address marker is to be displayed on the Google Map, with two modes available:
    • If you select “Address”, a text box is provided for you to enter the actual street address – type the address and click “Go”.
    • Selecting “Pin Location” gives you the option of entering the latitude and longitude of a location, or dragging the pin marker to a particular point on the map.
  3. Choose your map type – Map or Satellite
  4. Select the foreground colour for your QR code in Column 3. If you’re a paid subscriber you will also be able to set the image size, resolution, output file type (PNG, JPG, TIF, EPS, SVG, PDF or DXF ), and error correction level.
  5. Click the “Download QR Code” button and your Google Maps QR code is done.

PRO TIP:

To make sure that the address you enter into your QR code is correctly formatted (to minimise the possibility that the marker might be put in the wrong place) go to Google Maps first, locate the required address, and then use the Google Maps “Copy Address” feature. Another benefit of using this feature to make sure that the address is exactly the same as the one Google Maps use is, if Google Maps is aware of a specific business name or point of interest at that location, its name and details will also be displayed as part of the map information.

Our Google Maps QR codes are just one of the 23 fully-functional and non-expiring QR code data types that free users can create at www.qrstuff.com with no sign-up or registration required. Paid subscribers also get QR code editing and analytics reporting as part of the paid subscriber feature set.

Scanning Your Google Maps QR Code

When your Google Maps QR code is scanned, an initial page is displayed (depending on the device being used) that gives the user options for displaying the map. Shown below is what iPhone users will see – a choice of viewing the map in the Google Maps app (if installed) or Apple Maps.

The Google Map display will usually also let the user get driving directions from their current location, give a Street View option, and display any additional information that Google Maps is aware of about that location.

While free users can change the foreground colour of their QR code, paid subscribers can also change the appearance of the QR code image, and add a logo or image to it, making your QR code more visually distinctive and intuitive. Read more about our QR Code Styling feature.

YouTube’s Time Stamp Feature

Some YouTube videos play for more than an hour or so, and if you want to share videos with a QR code, you might want to let users jump to an important section of the video rather than playing the whole thing from the start. YouTube has made it possible for you to do this via the Time Parameter option.

On the YouTube video page simply right click anywhere within the video screen and choose “Copy video URL at current time.”

Note: This time parameter can also be manually added to the video URL that you’ve copied from the YouTube website.

QR Codes For Vimeo Videos

Looking for a way to share high resolution videos? Vimeo is a great platform that supports videos with resolutions of 720p, 1080p, and above. With a community of over 70,000,000 creators, Vimeo has a collection of clips that you can also share through QR codes. Here’s how it works.

Vimeo Video QR Code

First, go to the Vimeo website and once you are on the page for the video you want to share (either one you’ve uploaded yourself or one that someone else has uploaded), click on the paper plane symbol on the right side of the screen to share it. The share link will then be displayed – just copy it to the clipboard.

  1. Go to www.qrstuff.com and select “Website URL” as the data type from column 1.
  2. Paste the copied Vimeo share link into the input box in column 2.
  3. Modify the specifications of the QR code image in column 3.
  4. Click “Download QR Code” to save your Vimeo video QR code.

Video Compatibility

It’s important to confirm beforehand that the video file format is compatible with the phone that will be scanning the QR code. For example, .FLV (Flash video files) won’t work on an iPhone and MOV files (an Apple format) won’t play natively on an Android device unless an app has been installed that offers specific support for this file format.

To avoid playback issues for those scanning your video QR code, MP4 format video files are recommended due to their compatibility with most (if not all) devices.
