QR Codes – Android – Barcode Scanner

October 13th, 2009

I have played a little bit with QR Codes. QR (Quick Response) codes are similar to barcodes we know form supermarkets, but can contain much more information.


On Android Market the App “Barcode Scanner” can be downloaded for free. With “Barcode Scanner” one can use the phones built-in camera to resolve QR Codes. It works really fast and stable. Just give it a try.

Rooting the HTC Magic

August 4th, 2009

Here are some useful links if you consider to “root” your Android mobile-phone (only for G1 and Magic)

Don’t forget to make a backup.

FastBoot doesn’t write anything to the device!!! ROM is loaded directly from PC.

Last week i finally got my new mobile – an HTC Magic. The HTC Magic is HTC’s second mobile-phone (after G1) based on Google Android. With Android comes the Android Market, where one can download several thousands of applications.

My favorite Apps:

  • MyTracks (free): I really love this app! I tested it when i was hiking and mountain biking and it is amazing. MyTracks records your tracks via GPS and displays information concerning Evalutaion, Speed and Time. Recorded Tracks can directly be uploaded to Google MyMaps or can be stored as KML-File.
  • A Online Radio (free): As you can already guess it is an Web-Radio client. It’s easy to use containing lists of popular radio streams and a search function.

Apps I’m going to test within the next days:

  • iSkoot (free): Skype-Client
  • Bluetooth Fileshare – Bluex (€ 2,00)
