Thread: 'Decode Camera For iOS 7' Adds QR Code Scanning to the Camera App

    Default 'Decode Camera For iOS 7' Adds QR Code Scanning to the Camera App


    Last year, we showed you a jailbreak tweak called Decode Camera by iOS developer ioshack that added QR and Matrix code scanning functionality to the stock Camera application on iOS devices.

    The same developer has just released Decode Camera For iOS7, which is ultimately the same tweak, but with compatibility for iOS 7. Since the iOS 7 Camera application was completely re-designed, Decode Camera For iOS7 has been given a new type of implementation.

    As shown above, the tweak adds a new toggle button to the iOS 7 Camera application interface labeled "QR ON." When this is turned on, and colored yellow, the Camera application will be able to read QR codes. When the button says "QR OFF" and is colored white, the Camera application will no longer recognize QR codes.

    All you need to do is point the camera at a QR code and allow it to focus, and the Camera application will do the rest. It will automatically detect the QR code for you, and you'll get an alert that says, "Scan result has been copied to the clipboard."

    In this case, the QR Code represented ModMyi.com, and that means that the URL to this Web site was saved to the clipboard so that it could be pasted somewhere else or easily launched in a Web browser.

    Decode Camera For iOS7 has no options to configure, and if you want to give the tweak a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $1.50. This version of the tweak is only compatible with iOS 7, but you can install the original Decode Camera if you're running iOS 5 or iOS 6.

    Don't apps like this already exist in the app store?

    Yeah. Completely... home screen-hogging... independent applications.

    Jailbreak tweaks make things a whole lot more integrated into iOS itself. I prefer the jailbreak tweaks, honestly.
