It's funny you post this link up, because the native barcode reader I have installed on my Nokia N78, which is the latest one as mention in the video (which I installed a few days ago), does not work to well in recognizing the mobile codes created using your firefox add-on. I think it has to do with the lack of a large white border around the qr code. There is none (only a thin white outline around the code. The code reader on the phone seems to have a hard time locating and scanning the code without a thick white border around the code.

However, the program that I've been using to read qr-codes prior to installing the native one, a java app called I-nigma, works perfectly fine and recognizes the codes created with your add-on almost instantly.

Portrait of the author

On weekdays I'm a Technical Lead at, having previously been a Solution Architect at Nokia & Nokia Siemens Networks, creating creative software solutions for mobile operators around the world.

In my spare time I'm an avid new technology fan, and constantly strive to find innovative uses for the new gadgets I manage to get my hands on. Most recently I've been investigating Mobile Codes, RFID and Home automation (mainly Z-Wave). With a keen eye for usability I'm attempting to create some cost-effective, DIY technology solutions which would rival even high-end retail products. The software I develop is usually released as Open Source.

I have a Finnish geek partner, so have begun the difficult task of learning Finnish.
