>scan QR code
>they're still using a URL shortener and a link tracker and multiple redirects
why? whats bad about them? genuinely asking.
The alternative to them would be actually just printing the URL in text which people would then have eto type into a webbrowser themselves. That is definitely more tedious, especially if the resource link has to have some sort of unique ID as part of the link.
actually ios lets you copy text out of your camera or photos directly, so qr codes are now bloat for ioschads
thats just a worse way to do the same thing then.
I mean QR codes are literally designed for reliability and to be scanned a various angles and with distortion and artifacts. I doubt text recognition is anywhere near as good or reliable
believe what you want, whatever helps you cope with your small bank balance and laggy chinese spyware device
i wish i wasnt poor so people would actually take what i say seriously
>laggy chinese spyware device
You mean iPhone?
t. occasionally work with OCR
Reliable as in qr never gives you the wrong text, unlike ocr

Anon, have you stoped taking your pills again?

they dont work
I have never used them
You're such a fucking mindless naggercattle slave.
I believe you, baby.
I'm on lineage os and camera apps for exynos devices suck.
I have a gcam port that crashes every sec, and other camera apps need years to scan a qr
thank God civilization still exists in Europe. haven't seen anybody even try to pull this bullshit off here - if they did customer base would drop to 0
only good case for them is long links and situations where you need to log in/sync with something
scanning qr codes to see a menu at restaurants is one of the dumbest fucking trends
i dont use internet when going outside, because i have strong opinion that internet and real life should be separate, so how would that work for me as customer?
Poorly. I'm afraid we're going to have to ask you to leave!
its not that it is bad but its bad because these restaurants are fucking shit
just ask them to see a menu, then they look at you like a space alien for a moment before going to get you one
I understand how it saves them time/money, but it is absolutely shit, especially because I don't always have my phone on me.
Generally speaking in the customer service industry, most of the service-side things you do have nothing to do with saving time or money. Otherwise there would be no eat-in and there would be no decor.
Woah, they saved some cents in ink and paper sheets at the cost of losing the clients that aren't carrying an scanner
>hey anon do you like X? Scan here to connect with us
>have to open phone
>have to open qrcode reader
>reader is shit
>have to go to appstore to get another
>it finally works
>gives me a tiny url I could've just remembered
QR codes are almost always used for the dumbest fucking reasons.
You mean at the cost of losing the clients that aren't zoomtards or metropolitanite homosexuals. I know tons of people who won't bother if they can't have a proper menu.
your camera app can read qr
only when it feels like
me a tiny url I could've just remembered
>his restaurant didn't had the whole menu encoded the qr code as simple text
I feel bad for the people that still eat in that kinda restaurants
its nice I use them
>missingno takes over your society's information communication conventions
fucking lame aids shit
the smaller the QR code, the more convineientntt
I refuse to go back to scanning 20 barcodes one by one instead of a big qr code
For me it's pdf417.
AAAAHHHHHHHH I HATE QR CODE MENUS
AT LEAST REDIRECT ME TO A ORDERING PAGE INSTEAD OF A FUCKING PNG
most of what people dislike about QR codes are the readers and the retarded ways people sometimes try to use them.
An appropriately used QR code, along with a reader app that justworks.jpg, is pretty based tho
My college graduation had a 2 page pamphlet with a QR code on it instead of a program. I didn't scan it because I left my phone in my car because there was no sane reason why I would need it. Pissed me off
>not decoding the qr code in your head
the exam with reed solomon codes on it was the worst grade I got in undergrad, so that wasn't happening
>be at the store
>They put a QR code instead of just printing the opening hours
