Cydia Tweak: NativeQR, Decode Camera Add A QR Scanner To The Camera App
Two recent additions to the Cydia Store, NativeQR (pictured above) and Decode Camera, allow jailbreakers to easily scan QR codes on an iPhone handset using the built-in Camera app. While NativeQR is available for $1.99, Decode Camera carries a slightly lower price tag at $1.50. The only major difference between the two jailbreak tweaks is that NativeQR allows users to share contacts between smartphones using a generated on-screen QR code, while Decode Camera doesn't (as of this writing).

Though Apple's iOS 7 takes a whole load of inspiration from the jailbreak community, QR scanning hasn't yet reached the built-in Camera app (though a number of other features have). As mentioned, NativeQR and Decode Camera are available in the Cydia Store for $1.99 and $1.50, respectively.
