Re: Info-Eye application missing

A week ago I got Xperia XZ1 Compact. The phone is now updated to 47.1.A.16.20 (android 8). Yesterday I wanted to scan a QR code and fter some googling I found about Info-Eye. I also found it in Google Play store. The app isn't available for my device but almost everything that's on Google play is also on apkmirror.com

Here's how I got Info-Eye on my phone:

  • on PC I downloaded latest Info-Eye from apkmirror
  • moved the apk from downloads to a folder in Google Drive (still on PC)
  • on my phone I opened the default file browser and browsed to a forementioned folder in Google Drive
  • clicked the apk file and agreed to a warning about apps from unknown sources. It then installed the Info-Eye

Now I have Info-Eye listed as one of the creative filters in camera and it works with QR codes. Nice Slightly smiling Face

UPDATE 2019-01-28: after I got Pie update the camera interface changed and was without info-eye. I installed the info-eye once more but it didn't show up in the camera modes. It's also nowhere to be found in the app manager (settings/apps and notifications)

Re: Info-Eye application missing

The same way you can use for Google Lens, which is more sophisticated product. And it goes also quite well even in countries where it is not allowed in G Play.
