QR Codes are one of the very last thing that we see on internet. It silently makes it way into our lives, and we have seen many people embedding QR codes on their business cards, and as well as on products to visually encrypt the information. I can say that QR Codes scanning is one of the very least thing I have ever done with my iPhone or any other smartphone I have used so far. QR Codes get lots of hype around the market, and many developers introduced numerous application providing features that allow users to easily scan QR codes using a mobile device camera lens.
Since the QR Codes are here, we have never seen any mobile manufacturer supporting the feature natively in its operating system, which becomes the reason of QR Codes death. However, here is a new jailbreak tweak that allows iPhone and iPad users to use their native Camera application to scan QR Codes in seconds. NativeQR enables iOS Camera application to read and detect QR Codes in the application, and bring a dialogue box on screen to show off the hidden URL or text. The tweak converts your iOS Camera application to a QR Code reader, and let you easily scan QR code without any use of third-party application.
Once you have installed NativeQR on your iPhone, it will add a toggle in your iPhone’s Camera application right below the option where you can toggle Panorama mode. It comes with no additional options, and setting pane in Settings application. Furthermore, it allows users to share contact from one device to another using a QR Code. NativeQR becomes a real killer of third-party QR Code readers on iOS devices.
NativeQR is available in Cydia’s BigBoss Repository with a price tag of $1.99. You can download NativeQR from Cydia to transform your native camera application to a QR reader.
