If you ever need to quickly create your own Qr codes – those small scannable black and white squares often found in print advertising  – then Qreator is just the tool you need.

As a recent addition to the shelves of the Ubuntu Software you might not have heard of it before.

But the simple interface and tight Unity integration mean that it is just as capable, if not more so, than similar offerings we have looked at in the past – like as QtQr.

Features of Qreator

The usefulnesss of Qreator is in its feature set. It is able to quickly make Qrcodes for four different types of data – not just hyperlinks.

These are:

  • URL
  • Text
  • Location
  • Wifi Network

QrCodes based on the data chosen above are generated instantly, and can be saved straight to your desktop or copied to the system clipboard to paste in a graphics editing app, such as GIMP or Pinta.

A handy Unity quicklist is also in tow, giving you right-click access to all of the above features.
