I want an QR code reader application that can read and use qr code in my customized way. Actually I am generating a QR code from my web-application and taking their print outs. Size of the print is very small and I am encrypting the web link of each product in QR code. Problem is, since printout is very small and weblink is obviously long, so qr code generated is very complex and its printout is not readable properly by conventional applications. So I come to a solution i.e. now I am encrypting only the id of the product in QR code, and I need an application which will read that id and append it at the end of a pre-defined URL. This pre-defined URL will be constant and it will be very helpful if I can enter it in the application when I run it first time in my device. Please suggest me an application or I really need to develop it.

Let me get this straight- you are a web developer who has built an application that generates URLs. These urls have to be encoded in QR codes, but the codes look bad because the urls are so long. Your workaround is to encode only the unique part of your url into the qr. Am I getting this right? –  Andrey Losev Oct 9 '12 at 9:45

This looks like a server-side problem to me- you might want to ask this on on http://webmasters.stackexchange.com/

You really should shorten your URLs server-side, because your users are most likely not going to install a separate application just to scan your qr codes. Here are a few links to get you started:

Try Scanlife QR Code Reader. I think it may help you.
