Adding our App-Based QR Code Scanner over Other Scanner Apps

Many people avoid using app-based QR code scanners. That’s because apps often request various permissions on their phone. 

Giving permissions on a smartphone can risk security and privacy. Many apps that request for various permissions could steal your data. The apps could steal passwords, media, contacts, and other data on your phone. 

To avoid risks, people use web-based scanners. Using the built-in QR code scanner on smartphones is an option as well. However, not all smartphones are equipped with that feature. Usually, the QR code scanner is only available to newer versions of iOS and Android.

But, here’s the thing. Even if you add our app-based QR code scanner, you don’t have to worry about all the reasons why you’re not into app-based scanners in the first place.

Adding our QR Code Scanner to your phone is better than other scanner apps.

Here’s why! Just like our web-based QR code scanner, the app-based scanner is pretty much the same. 

One, you don’t need to worry about granting various permissions from your phone. Our QR code scanner won’t ask for various permissions just like our web-based QR code scanner. 

Also, our app-based QR code scanner will not take much of your phone’s storage. It’s just less than 1 MB!

Good thing you can spend time on social media platforms, interactive smartphone apps, or playing games! 

Everyone actually has more time now to enjoy games where they can have fun and even make friends through Twitch.

Twitch is a live streaming platform. This can help you share your gameplay in real-time to friends or fans! You can even make money from streaming games once you have a strong following. 

How? You need to have an audience. 

To have an audience, you want to make your presence known in your niche or community. This is best done by sharing your streaming profile and communicating with your target audience. That’s how you build a strong following. 

There are many ways to gain viewers on your Twitch account. You can use ads or engage with your target audience.

Prioritizing engagement is one of the best choices because it involves zero money. You just have to share your Twitch profile on different social media platforms. 

However, sharing links can look spammy. This can drive possible viewers away from your Twitch profile. You can avoid this by sharing a QR code instead. 

Using QR Codes in Sharing Twitch Profiles

QR codes offer convenience and they can improve your image on different social media platforms. QR codes don’t look spammy like links. If you use a QR code you will be viewed as one of the pros! Many professional gamers and brands use QR codes to share links. 

Are you ready to use QR codes now? I’m here to help! In this blog post, I’ll show you how to create QR codes for Twitch.

  2. In the “Content” section, paste the URL of your Twitch profile.      
  3. At this point, you can download the QR code.

Uses of QR Codes during COVID-19

Posted: June 24th, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: General | No Comments »

How can QR codes help during COVID-19?  

There are many ways that QR codes can contribute to controlling the spread of COVID-19. They can help you do things more easily and more conveniently.

For example, QR codes allow you to order food in a restaurant without making physical contact or interacting with the menu or the waiter. You just have to scan the QR code to see the list of available foods on the menu. 

If you’re looking for a list of how QR codes can help during COVID-19, you’re in the right place. Today, I’ll talk about various ways people can use QR codes to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

QR Code for TikTok Profiles 

TikTok and QR codes can both help you avoid COVID-19.

TikTok is one of the most used social media platforms during the pandemic. Over 800 million people worldwide are using this app. The reason for that is because it offers a large variety of media, filters, and video effects to keep people busy. TikTok’s fun and enjoyable app helps people relieve their boredom while stuck in their homes. 

You can actually create a QR code for your TikTok profile to make it easier for you to have your friends follow you on the platform. You just need to share your generated TikTok QR code and they can scan it to see your profile and follow your account.

QR Codes for Ordering Food Online 

QR codes for ordering food online can help to avoid COVID-19. 

The economy stopped in most countries during the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses in the food industry such as restaurants have no choice but to shut down as well. They have to halt their operations because their employees and customers cannot leave their homes. 

However, online food ordering has already been an option long before the COVID-19 pandemic. Many restaurants can adapt to this now that there are people who can’t go out to dine in restaurants.

If your business just published its own website during the COVID season, don’t worry. There are ways to drive people to your restaurant’s website so they can order food. That’s where QR codes come into play.

One is to flash your QR code in your restaurant’s window or entrance door to inform walk-in customers that you now provide online ordering. Another is to inform your regular mailing list that they can now order food online by just scanning the QR code included in the brochure. You can also share this option with your followers on social media.

QR Codes for Restaurant Menus


If you own a restaurant and you’re thinking about how to cater to walk-in customers despite this situation, including QR codes in your operations can help.

One of the fears these days is to touch anything used in public, restaurant menus, for example. But, by using QR codes, your walk-in customers don’t have to worry about touching the restaurant’s menu.

Just include a QR code on your restaurant’s menu. Walk-in customers simply need to scan the QR code to see the restaurant’s menu through their smartphone and order with the waiter.

QR Codes for Work From Home Employees 

The COVID-19 pandemic forces people to stay inside their homes to avoid getting infected with the virus. This leaves them no choice but to work from home. 

If you’re an employer, it’s best to make use of QR codes for your employees, especially if you’re tracking them.

It’s very inconvenient for your employees to log in and out every time when working. This may cause them to slack off. To avoid this from happening, you can use QR codes for attendance tracking. 

Your employees just have to scan the QR codes whenever they need to log in or out of work. This allows you to see their work hours in real-time. 

QR Codes for Zoom 

If you’re allowing work-from-home employees, it’s best to consider using QR codes for Zoom meetings. 

To view the Zoom video conference, people need to type a code or click your link. This can be very inconvenient to some people they just want to join the Zoom meeting instantly. 

QR codes can help in joining a Zoom meeting instantly. Your employees just have to scan the QR code to join your meeting. 

QR Codes for Paypal 

Physical interaction is prohibited during the COVID-19 pandemic. This limits the movement of people in the outside world. 

If you have a business, receiving payments and giving change is not advisable because it can help in spreading the virus. So to keep yourself and other people safe and healthy, it’s best to use QR codes for payments, particularly for PayPal. 

Many people use PayPal to pay things online, it’s easy to use and convenient. People just have to enter your email address to make the payments. 

But to make things even easier, you can create a QR code containing details about your PayPal account. In this way, people just have to scan the QR code to make payments in your business. 

QR Codes for Donation Drives 

The COVID-19 pandemic put lots of people in a compromising situation. But there are also people who can use this pandemic to help people. 

Today, many charities ask for donations. But as people may not be allowed to go outside, charities can set up an online donation. 

People can now donate cash, PPE suits, masks, relief goods, or other useful items without even doing a physical drop off. They can do it online or hire someone to deliver it for them. 

Asking donations online has a 50/50 chance of success. People don’t often click links because they might think that it’s a phishing site or a scam. But if the donation drive uses QR codes, there’s a strong possibility that it won’t get ignored. 

Using QR codes is safer and more convenient than posting a link on social media platforms. You can attach it to your official donation posts on social media so it can’t be faked by scammers. 

QR Code for Online Lessons and Educational Pages 

The COVID-19 pandemic also affects education. Many schools and universities are forced to delay or stop their classes while others are still continuing their operations online. 

Many educational institutions are using online classes. This allows students to study even if they are inside their homes.  

If you’re a teacher or instructor, you can better teach and distribute educational materials to your students using QR codes. QR codes are a faster way to distribute your online lessons and educational pages than posting links. Your students just have to scan the QR code to see and save the documents. 

Using QR Codes in this New Normal

This pandemic certainly has created a new normal for us just to survive and control the spread of the contagion. It’s never going to be easy but certainly, there are options that we can adapt and use. One of these is through the use of QR codes.

QR codes can greatly help in implementing paperless or no contact transactions as discussed in this blog post. From online food ordering, online donation drives, online educational pages where QR codes can help make things easier and possible, we can see ways for us to continue our way of life even in this new normal.

How to Create QR Codes for Restaurant Menus

Posted: June 16th, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: General | No Comments »

Would you like your customers to view your restaurant’s menu without actually touching it? 

With the COVID-19 pandemic, people are hesitant to go outside, let alone touch anything in public. This is a huge problem especially for business owners whose operation requires physical interaction. 

Restaurants, in particular, have this problem. Many people avoid going out to eat because it requires them to handle the menu that has been touched by countless others. 

Fortunately, there are many ways to avoid this. For example, you could provide sanitary gloves or you could post the menu on the wall instead. 

You could also opt for one-time paper menus that you can give to your customers. But, that would be a wasteful alternative and would give you additional costs.

Using QR codes for your menu would be a better and budget-friendly solution at the same time. You could place a QR code on the table that your customers can scan to see the menu. 

Pretty convenient, isn’t it? 

QR codes are now part of the norm. Don’t worry about customers not being able to scan the QR code for the menu.

Almost all smartphones are capable of scanning QR codes. Also, creating a QR code for your menu is quite easy. 

In this blog post, I’ll give you steps on how to create QR codes for your restaurant’s menu. 

Creating QR codes for Your Restaurant’s Menu 

Creating QR codes for your menu is easier now. There are two options that you can do to create a QR code for your menu. 

Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with how to create these QR codes. I’ll show you how to create a QR code for a menu that’s in a (1) PDF file or your (2) website.

QR Codes for Your PDF Menu

If your restaurant doesn’t have a website yet, you can save your menu in a PDF file. Then, we can create a QR code for that PDF menu. Here’s how you can do that:

  1. First, go to https://www.qrstuff.com/?type=pdf and have the “PDF file” data type pre-selected from the Data Type section.         
  2. In the next section, upload the PDF file of your restaurant menu.            
  3. At this point, you can now download the QR code. 

QR Codes for Your Online Menu

If your restaurant has a website, you can just create a QR code from the website URL of your restaurant’s menu. You can create one as follows:

  1. First, go to https://www.qrstuff.com/?type=websiteurl and have the “Website URL” data type pre-selected from the first section.      
  2. In the next section, input the website URL where your restaurant’s menu is posted.          
  3. At this point, you can now download the QR code. 

Make It A Bit Fancy

Here at QR Stuff, you can enjoy more privileges using our QR code generator when you’re a paid subscriber. In addition to creating QR codes, our paid subscribers have the privilege to use the Style Section where they can customize their QR codes. They can either change the colors of the dots, its shape and also insert a relevant logo to the QR code. 

Customizing the QR code is just easy. They only need to follow the same steps listed above and customize the QR code through the “Style” section before downloading the QR code. Using the “Style” section, they can come up with a visually appealing and distinctive QR code like the one shown on the left.
