I'm interested in Decoding and generating QR Type barcodes on my iPhone. I think it would be easier to generate them on my PC/Mac but I would like suggestions on how this can be done please?

Is this programming related? Because if it is it's better suited for stackoverflow. –  alex Oct 13 '09 at 10:27

No, not really, it's more a user feature than a dev feature. –  Rich Bradshaw Oct 13 '09 at 10:30

For decoding, this article seems pretty comprehensive: http://www.simonblog.com/2008/11/14/qr-code-reader-for-iphone-barcodes-zxing/

For generating them, this website (http://qrcode.kaywa.com/) does the trick, and will work on the iPhone or a desktop computer.

BeeTagg is a free app for the iPhone, and has an associated web-based generator.

I have OptiScan on my iPhone and in my opinion it is the best hands down! See http://blog.airsource.co.uk/index.php/what-is-optiscan/ for more information.

Oddly they didn't put this into the US store. –  dlamblin Oct 18 '09 at 7:43
