Most of the Android phone users do not use any file manager program on the phone because they do not feel the need of using such applications and thus for them it becomes very difficult to install a non Market application from SD card. Mainly this happens when people use phone only for calling purpose and office usage, the applications like Adobe Reader, Quick Office, Android Gallery, Music application and video application gather information from SD card thus eliminating the need of a file manager on the phone. It is very true that the SD card can also be managed from computer by connecting via USB cable which again adds up in eliminating the need for a file manager on the phone. Also most of the people believe that using file manager can damage the file system on SD card and can affect the internal memory, so in order to save the phone they avoid using the file manager application. Sometimes newbie never realize the requirement of a file manager and they normally come up with a question on the forums like, “How do I install a non Market application .apk file on my phone”. So for this very reason a website is designed in order to install .apk file on Android devices using QR code. A QR code is normally a form of bar code which when decoded returns some sort of information. This website thus acts like a free online service to install .apk files onto an Android phone. Using the website is very simple and the idea is very innovative.
To use this service one needs to have the .apk file stored on his computer, bar code or QR code scanning program like Neo reader or QR droid installed on their Android phone and lastly working internet connection on computer and also on the Android phone. The following will explain how the service works and is used:
- The website stores the .apk file onto their web space.
- Generates the QR code for the application .apk file and is shown to the user.
- Within fifteen minutes the user needs to scan the QR code and further follow the instructions on phone to install.
Three simple steps and the application will be installed on the phone. For much better understanding I have attached the screen shots, Check out the Screen shots below. The service is good and does what it is meant to do.
QR Code Scanner:
To scan the QR code use Neo Reader or any other bar code scanning program. Neo Reader can be downloaded from the market or follow the link http://get.neoreader.com/, simply scan the QR code by directing your Android phone camera to the code through the bar code / QR code scanning program.
