Help Us Test Our New QRpedia Codes

QRpedia is changing the way we create QR codes – and we need you to help us test them!

At the moment, QRpedia codes have a small problem with accented characters and non-Latin alphabets. When you scan in a code with accents, you may see a screen like this:

We want to change that, so you see something like this:

So, here’s the new style QR code which should cope with non-English characters.

Can you please scan it with your phone and answer four simple questions:

  1. Can you see the foreign characters in the URL once scanned?
  2. Are you able to visit the link?
  3. What phone are you using?
  4. Which QR scanner are you using


Thanks for all the tests. Looks like we won’t be going with these new style QR codes. While they work well in Android – they seem problematic on some iPhones and Nokias. Oh well, back to the drawing board!
