WiFi And Drop A vCard With QrCode

My Qr Code generating application QrCode has had another update with 2 new features. They are

  1. Drop a vCard file into QrCode to create an address Qr Code
  2. Create a WiFi login Qr Code

With the vCard feature you can export an address from an address book application like Organizer and drop it into QrCode to create a Qr Code with the details filled in.

With the WiFi feature click on the WiFi button on the main window and enter the WiFi login details and click on the Get Qr Code button and a Qr Code will be generated that will allow a Qr Code to be scanned in by a smartphone or tablet to enable it to login to that WiFi network.

QrCode Updated Again

I have updated my Qr Code generating application QrCode to version 1.06

New in this version is that the recently added support for MeCards has been replaced with Vcard support as it adds support for more fields. Also I have got over the 256 character limit thanks to Brandy BASIC.

In the future I will be looking into dropping a Vcard into QrCode and creating a Qr Code from that and support for other formats.

The Qr Code comes from Qr Code Generator site.

MeCards Comes To QrCode

My Qr Code generating application QrCode has been updated to version 1.05

New in this version is the ability to generate a MeCard which when scanned should be able to added to an address book.

At the moment I have only implemented Name, Address and phone number, as BASIC’s 256 character limitation causes problems when having more fields, but I am looking at ways around this.

Bug Fix To MPdata+

My application for displaying information about your UK Member of Parliament MPdata+ has been updated to version 1.17

This update is to fix a couple of bugs relating to new MPs who have yet to take part in Parliament, the first bug fix was that the maiden speech button would cause a crash if they had yet to make their first speech in Parliament. The other bug fix was to do with the bedates window in which it showed buttons that did nothing if they had made less than 4 debates and or written questions.
