Bookmarklet for QR Codes from Android market links

Since the beginning of this month Google has been allowing access to its android app market for non-Android devices via Unfortunately when accessing the app pages with a non-android device there’re no QR codes for the apps, so getting the app to the device is pretty cumbersome. I wrote a little bookmarklet to convert the http://market URL into a market:// one and generate a QR code image for that link.

javascript:(function(){var exp = /details?id=([w.]*)/; exp.exec(location.href);'' + encodeURIComponent('market://details?id='+RegExp.$1), '_blank');})()

Just Drag&Drop this linked image:


to your bookmarks bar and click on it when you’re on a android app page:
