brilliant addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

feature request: create qr for contact (ie. at the address book)

Großartiges Tool! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Genau das, was ich brauche.

Ich frage mich gerade, ob man nicht auch die Aufgaben-Liste mit QR-Codes versehen kann oder ob es da technische Hürden gibt.

Super! Also for Contacts, please! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Toll! Ich kann es jedem Smartphone-Benutzer empfehlen, besonders da es ohne Neustart auskommt.
- eine Option, die Beschreibung aus dem QR-code wegzulassen oder zu kürzen, um Riesencodes zu vermeiden.
- Auch Kontakte zu QR-Codes machen können.

Great! i can recommend this to any smart hpone user, especially since this can be de-/activated without restart.
- Option to share without description (or with truncated description)
- Also feature QR codes in the address book for transferring contacts.

Review for Lightning QR Code Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Review for Lightning QR Code Addon

The addon had no problem during installation and works fine - as is. Impressive as it did capture most if not all the details of the event. Of course, the test was simple, but for this test all the details were captured. Test was performed using QR Droid on Samsung Galaxy Sii.

This is important when using QR Codes to transfer information such as scheduling because some applications only transfer metadata and not a summary of the details / notes.

Good job!]

Genau das, was ich brauche Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Da ich meine Termine mit Thunderbird nicht auf mein Nokia (Windows-Phone) über die Cloud übertragen kann (mir unbekannt?), ist dieser QR-Code genau das Richtige. Leider sind aber bei mir die Zeiten immer um 1 Stunde nach hinten verschoben.

Danke für die Bewertung

Eventuell hilft es, einen anderen Barcode-Scanner zu verwenden (erkennt dieser schon die Zeiten nicht richtig?). Ansonsten kann es sein, dass die importierende App die Zeitzonen nicht richtig verarbeiten kann; Auch dafür könnte es vielleicht eine Alternative geben...

Very handy utility Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can confirm this works with iPhone 4s using QuickMark scanner, Thunderbird 24.4.0, Lightning 2.6.4

This lets me keep my calendar updated with no sync utilities. Very very well done!

Stunning Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely LOVE this add-on. Hovering reveals the code, setting it to auto-copy to the clipboard means I can send a QR code along with any email to my clientele so they can easily scan the meeting details. Genius implementation. I actually created a Mozilla account JUST to write this review.

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Génère un QR code pour votre événement. Pour pouvoir le copier coller dans un message électronique ou ailleurs, allez dans options du module et passez de 0 à 1 le champ "copy image to clipboard".Quand vous survolez votre évènement le QR code apparait. Survolez-le et aussitot un cadre rouge apparait; et hop le QR code est automatiquement copié dans votre presse papier. Vous n'avez plus qu'à le coller dans votre message ou dans un fichier.Facile d'utilisation, fait ce pour quoi c'est prévu : excellent module.

Klasse! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Grandioses AddOn! Als ich es das erste mal sah, wußte ich nicht wozu es gut sein soll. Seit ich nun ein Smartphone aus beruflichen Gründen nutzen muß, habe ich die Terminübertragung via QR-Code sehr zu schätzen gelernt :) .
Einzige Bitte, die ich hätte, wäre, dies AddOn kompatibel zu der Lightning-Version von Postbox zu machen. Mein Betrieb nutzt diesen TB-Ableger.

Cool. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works for me right fine! Just install and go.

I had only two small improvement ideas:
- Make the QR code somehow being able to copy&paste for transferring it electronically.
- For really large meetings (having lots of descriptions and attendees) either the screen or the mobile camera resolution was not enough to scan the QRC. I don't know if some sort of full screen or zoom would have helped?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

Thanks for your review.

Regarding copy & paste: Nice idea, I'll think about it. The tooltip will go away whenever you press a key though, so I need to think about alternatives. Maybe auto-copying the GIF image to the clipboard after a configurable timeout or copying it via an entry in the context-menu of the event would do...

As for the second issue, here are some aspects to consider:
- First, the more data there is to encode, the more detailed and harder to scan the QR code will be. This is further influenced by technical limitations, like screen and camera size/resolution and environment variables like lighting conditions. Therefore, if there is any way to reduce the amount of data to encode, this is the most effective way for improvement.
- I've had problems with "big" events, too, though most codes work fine. How much data do those events contain, can you provide more information about hardware, etc.? If you turn on logging and bring up the error console, you will see how many characters need to be encoded. It should be possible to copy the data out of there and paste it into another QR code generator for testing purposes.
- In my experience, enlarging the QR code in most cases will not help, as this just forces you to hold the phone further away from the screen for the code to fit into the scan area. So if the resolution is the limiting factor, there's not much you can do about it. You can verify that by testing other generators on the web. Yet, if you find out then that it gets better, please tell me.
- Resizing can blur the image, making recognition even harder.
- I've tried to make the QR codes always have a roughly similar size in pixels so that they go well with the tooltips, and to save screen space. Maybe I can fine-tune these settings.
- Though propably not a typical use-case for most people, I can imagine one scenario for full-screen/zoomed QR codes: Sharing an event during a presentation (projector). Currently, I do not have plans to support this, but if I implement copy & paste, then you could transfer the code to your presentation document and resize it there.

Edit: Ok. I've created VERY large events that need QR code version > 35 (more than 2303 characters), and I see that this is in fact too small to be recognizable. This will be fixed in the next version.
