In one of my recent projects, the need to encode QR codes on the device came up. I tried a few different methods and wasn’t really satisfied with any of them.
The method detailed here is the one I chose based on ease of use and the quick set up time.
The core library is written in c and the base version can be found here: http://fukuchi.org/works/qrencode/index.html.en (download the entire project below).
I am using a modified version with a few helper methods written in objective-c. Then my usage is as follows:
UIImage *image = [self quickResponseImageForString:@"http://danielbeard.wordpress.com" withDimension:182]; //set the image [imageView setImage: image];
