The great QR Code Reader search

Ever see those little barcode-like things on a business card that says you can import the entire business card into your phone just by "scanning this code"? Well I decided I wanted one on my iphone, so I began the great search for a QR Code generator and reader combination that would work to import my entire vCard information.

After searching around for about an hour downloading literally every free QR Code scanner on iTunes, I discovered I-Nigma and ZXing. Interestingly enough, it appears as though ZXing is simply using the Google Charts API to generate the QR Code, which means you could literally generate any QR Code by simply modifying this url.

I-Nigma reads these cards, and then allows you to save them directly to your phonebook. I'll now be adding a link to I-Nigma as well as my personal MECard on the back of all of my Business Cards from now on.
