Posted: December 16th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: Generating QR Codes, QRStuff Features | No Comments »

Audio QR codes using the features of Google Drive and QRStuff.com are what to be presented in this updated post. QR codes for audio and music are made using QRStuff.com’s Website URL data types, similar to what the previous blogs have provided. Scanning the code to listen to your favorite music wherever, whenever you are — inside the trains, while stuck in traffic or working out is one of the easiest ways to create your own peace.

The Website URL data type for audio QR codes is among the 23 fully-functional data types that free users can create at QRStuff.com. There is no sign-up or registration required, and users can have access to non-expiring QR code data types. QR Stuff subscribers can utilize additional features such as QR code editing and analytics reporting as part of the paid subscriber feature set.

Using Audio Files For QR Codes Through Google Drive

1. After you have selected the audio file — the audio or music may be sourced from online providers such as downloads or music sharing applications. Whichever file formats the music or audio are, you can always keep the link and use Google Drive to store them.

2. Make sure that the audio and music files are in your storage or hard drive, for instance in one of your folders within your tablet, PC or mobile.

3. Open Google Drive and click New to upload the music file. Once the audio file has been uploaded to the Drive, right click on the file and select Get Shareable Link. Copy the link provided within the pop-up box. Next up, you’ll be guided on generating the Audio QR code using QR Stuff.

Generating The Audio QR Code

To create your audio QR codes whether for your personal or business needs, it is important that you select recommended QR code generators. QRStuff.com is among these reliable websites, emerging from the consumers and markets around.

1. Go to https://www.qrstuff.com/?type=websiteurl and have the “Website URL” data type pre-selected from column 1.

2. In Column 2, paste the URL of the audio code to the box provided, as obtained from the previous posts.

3. 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. Paid subscribers can also choose a QR code template from a variety of available designs in the gallery.

4. Click the “Download QR Code” button and the QR code for your music is ready for use.

Make It A Bit Fancy

While free users can change the foreground colour of their QR code, paid subscribers have the ability to also change the appearance of QR code image and embed a logo or image in its centre. Just use the steps outlined above to create your Audio QR code, and then, before you download your finished QR code, click the “Style Your QR Code” button to change its appearance.

To the right is an example that shows what could be done to the QR code created above using our QR Code Styling feature. Our styling interface allows you to make your QR code more visually distinctive and, by embedding a suitable image, perhaps more intuitive as well. Our previous post on QR Code Styling will give you more information about how to use this feature.

QR Stuff New Feature: QR Codes Templates

Posted: September 14th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General, QRStuff Features | No Comments »

QR Stuff introduces a new feature on the website which allows users to select ready-made templates from a gallery and apply them to their QR codes. You don’t need to start from scratch when designing the QR code when you have the various designs we prepared for you.

These templates are available according to the data type of the code you are generating. For instance, QR codes for Facebook Like buttons now have pre-designed options in the template gallery, one with the Facebook logo at the centre. See other templates for Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, SMS and more.

This feature is a standard part of the QR Stuff paid subscriber feature set and is available to all full subscribers. Become a paid subscriber now.

How To Use This Feature

1. First, log in to your QR Stuff subscriber account. Select the data type from which you want to create the QR code. Fill out the information and required fields.

2. In Column 3, click the “Select A QR Code Template” button. You can then select a particular template or design that you want to use.

3. See the changes and your chosen template in the preview section at the right side of the QR code generator.

4. Click the “Download QR Code” button and your QR code is ready for use.

Important: Using shapes, light colours or a logo in your QR Code may reduce its scan reliability. Please test your QR code before publishing. If at any point you want to go back to change the template or design, feel free to click the “Select A QR Code Template” button once more and see the changes live in the preview section.

Editing And Styling The QR Code Template

Once you have selected a template for the QR code, you can still customize it based on the style you want. To do this, head over to the Design panel by clicking “Style Your QR Code.” Simply follow the same steps when designing the QR code. Edit according to dot colour, dot shape, corner colour, and corner shape.

Here is an example that shows what could be done to the QR code template created above using our QR Code Styling feature. Our styling interface allows you to make your QR code more visually distinctive, perhaps more intuitive as well. Read our blog post on QR Code Styling for more details about how to use this feature.

Scanning QR Codes on an iOS Device

Posted: July 17th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General, QRStuff Features | No Comments »

Multinational tech company Apple is a big fan of QR codes. Recent reports revealed that the tech giant has now adopted the way other QR code readers work. iOS 11 and iOS 12 systems are now capable of reading QR codes through the device camera. There is no need to download external applications.

As you may have already learned from previous blog posts, a QR code stands for “Quick Response” and refers to a mobile phone readable barcode that contains phone numbers, SMS messages, email addresses, information for business cards or just plain text. Apple is taking advantage of the popularity of these intuitive codes to present a feature without the need for a third-party app for scanning.

How To Scan QR Codes Using Your Apple Device

Scanning the QR code you have using your Apple device — yes, including the iPad — has opened up a new realm of possibilities for those that rely on these innovations. The steps for scanning the code are simple and easy:

  1. Open the Camera app.
  2. Point the camera lens to capture the QR code at just the right distance — not too close and not too far.
  3. The Apple scanning feature will automatically read the code. The user will receive a prompt to follow the URL. Depending on the data type chosen, you will be directed to the embedded information.

Devices running iOS 12 have also introduced a cool new addition to scanning QR codes.

Note: If the scanning does not work,  check to make sure that the scanning feature is on. Simply head over to Settings, then Camera. Next, enable Scan QR Codes (if it’s not on by default).

The QR Stuff QR Code Scanner

QR Stuff also has a QR code scanner that lets you create and scan the codes in just one platform. The new QR Stuff QR code scanner can also be used on iOS devices.

This is a recommended alternative to Apple’s feature as QR Stuff offers this as a secure scanning medium. It first displays the QR code content before taking an action on the user device, while most other scanners immediately take an action.

  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 to capture the QR code ready to be scanned. You only need to grant permission once, 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.

Use the QR Stuff QR Code Scanner on your iOS device the same way you access your apps. First, 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 are prompted to enter a name for the shortcut. The icon appears on your home screen. Tap the shortcut icon to go to the QR Stuff QR Code Scanner.

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.
