Chrome browser extension adds QR Codes to the Windows Phone Store


Thomas from has added a feature to the Windows Phone Store which Microsoft themselves should really have sorted a long time ago.

Microsoft allows one to wirelessly install an app from the Windows Phone store, but that process requires one to sign in, click about 3 times and often fails.

Thomas’s Google Chrome browser extension is a lot simpler- it adds a QR Code to the app listing in the Windows Phone Store, allowing one to reliably install an app without all the faffing around.

The extension can be found in the Google Chrome Store here.
