In this part of the world, many are perplexed as to what to do when they see a QR Code, a harmless little square box that looks like a really boring jigsaw puzzle. They may stare at their cell phone, knowing that it’s something to do with it, and snap a picture of it. Sadly, this is the case because people need to know that in order to read the QR Code, you’ll need a QR code decoder to access the information contained within the QR Code.
The QR Code decoder is usually a software provided by either a mobile phone company, an independent entity or an open source code programmer. All in all, each QR Code decoder works pretty much the same way except that some of them require more effort (and patience) than others. There are a few QR Code decoders out there on the internet that provides for simplicity but loads far too slowly. And then there are some that come with advertisements too. The choice, however, is yours to make.
If you look on the internet, there are some that allows you to snap pictures of the QR Code that you see, come home and download it to your computer and then upload it to a website where they will instantly decode it for you on your laptop or personal computer.
The QR Code decoder is necessary because whenever someone types a string of URLs or a message into an encoder, like the one on www.beqrious.com, the message or URL becomes coded within the QR Code. In order for the cell phone to read or see beyond those square boxes, you need a QR Code decoder.
An online QR Code decoder example would be this one:http://zxing.org/w/decode.jspx
Sourceforge, a leader in open source codes have a list of open source QR Code decoders on their website too and you can find them here. http://qrcode.sourceforge.jp/
Trying out these decoders online will help you understand how QR Code decoders work and once you get the hang of it, you’ll be waiting to find more QR Codes so that you can decode them with your cell phone instead.
