Both released in one day by separate developers, Decode Camera and NativeQR are the first two Cydia tweaks to bring QR reading to the stock camera app. With these new tweaks, you don't have to grab a QR reader from the AppStore just to read a code on a billboard, advertisement or magazine.

Decode Camera is developed by ioshack with a price tag of $1.50. It is compatible with iPad and supports the front and rear facing cameras. iOS 5 and 6 are supported as well.

NativeQR is similar, but features a $1.99 price tag. It lacks iOS 5 and iPad compatibility, but iPad support will be soon released. Developed by Evan Swick, NativeQR is also integrated with your contacts -- allowing you to quickly share your information via a QR code.

You can find both tweaks in the Cydia store. Let us know which you one prefer!

Decode Camera [$1.50]

NativeQR [$1.99]

Installed NativeQR and it broke the native Panorama function of 4S. Horizontal guide arrow doesn't work and there's a thin upward line of gibberish characters in a gray background from the bottom center of the screen. Uninstalled NativeQR and native Panorama functioned correctly again. Great idea that needs the bugs worked out.

It was great reading it as I was not knowing much about QR code.

Why do Chinese always pick their noses in public? I was recently on a tour bus taking me to a casino and bus was packed with Chinese and from about 50 chinks at least 10 of them were picking their noses. Many burped out lout and many took off their shoes leaving their smelly feet on the seat. My God are all you chinks so disgusting? Remind me never to eat in a Chinese restaurant cus maybe one of those nose pickers works at a Chinese restaurant
