QR Reader Rankings
After not having much luck with turning up standards for QR readers, I am going to start conducting my own testing and ranking for iphone reader apps. IF you have information that would help me out, please shoot me an email. Especially if you are on RIMM or Android platforms. note: mark if apps are free.
The logic behind this is that I want to assure clients about quality control of User Experience, however, if everyone is using a different app (algorithm) to decode QRs, this results in some codes working, and others not. So, We decided to reach out to the QR community and see whos using what.
In no order ( except how they are displayed ) – Note, this just reflects my personal results, and a a few people I have reached out to. There is no scientific testing of results to justify these.
Iphone testing off of Scrabble QR post. 6 total that I am going to consistently test out more.
