Google is not as friendly as Apple when it comes to apps store. Most of the users find it difficult to use the QR code that makes app downloading and installing easy and hassle free task.

The following step by step tutorial will guide you to use QR code that most of the website offer to download and install the apps directly to your android phone.

Step 1. A QR code is an advanced version of bar code found on products in grocery stores or any other products. QR code is a two-dimensional bar code that can store information like URLs. To read this QR code, first install the app called the Barcode Scanner. You can find Barcode Scanner app in the Android Market easily by searching this keyword “Barcode”. There in the search result you will find the app called “Barcode Scanner”. Download and install the Barcode Scanner app.

    Isn’t there someway to have the scanner scan the barcode on the website itself? Suppose I am browsing on my android phone…how do I scan the barcode directly? This seems like a stupid/obvious question, but everytime I open the barcode scanners they give me a red line to scan objects ooutside the phone…what about the codes within the phone. Is it possible to somehow give the browser the option to open the image with a barcode scanner? Sorry if this question is obvious…just not sure I understand why a barcode is better than a link…especially if it may not be able to open a page with one click…? Thanks for your help.

    The QR code reader app on your android phone will read the codes when you are using your computer to browse through the site. I think links to the Android market place are the only option to download the apps when you are browsing the website through your phone.

    Actually Google in an attempt to look smart has created the dumbest of app store. The Apple is an example when you are looking for smart ideas.
