editor's review




SDR Free QR Code Generator is a simple, yet efficient program that serves to convert regular text, links, phone numbers and other types of data to QR codes, which can be later interpreted by a specialized imaging device such as a smart phone.

The algorithm that carries out the task is pretty complex, however, the efforts assigned to end user are drastically reduced by the application, since a couple of clicks will suffice to get the job done. The resulting image can be saved to PNG format and read with the aid of dedicated third-party mobile phone apps that can interpret the data accordingly.

Setting up the program is not a complicated process; the installation process, which takes under a minute ends up creating a shortcut on your desktop, for ease of access. Moreover, the main window is quite simple and easy to understand by all audiences.

First and foremost, you are required to select the type of data to be converted, as follows: free text, URL, contacts, phone numbers or SMS messages. Depending on your choice, several fields need to be filled in; for instance, if you opted for contacts, details such as name, email, phone and fax number, address, country will be asked of you, although not all of them are mandatory.

As you’re typing, you will notice that the application is generating the QR code concomitantly and will stop when you’re done entering the data. At this point, you can save the barcode to a PNG file or you can scan it with your phone directly.

The overall impression that SDR Free QR Code Generator makes is that of a straightforward application that despite its shocking simplicity, carries out the task as promised. However, we would definitely like to see options to share the QR code to social networks in future releases.
