Using a QR code if you only have a mobile phone

If you open a link in safari, there is a way to propose using the app instead of the web page, which includes the possibility to pass the token for pairing the app into the app once it is installed. But I am not sure if that would work if you e.g. open the email with the gmail app on iOS. 

The alternative would be to use a mirror and take a photo of your own screenshot LOL. Or more realistically, copy and paste the QR code into the app; however I doubt that anybody would think this is intuitive.

There must be a better way. For example universal links could be used to first install the Vodia App and then use a URL with some vodia-app://pbx.demo.com?user=123&tenant=bla.com&token=3js3h43 link to do the pairing. I think there was also a way to pass a token from the App Store link to the app itself after it runs the first time, but could not find that again.

I think the real solution would be what other apps do. They allow you to select the qr photo from the photo library.

 

one can save the qr image into photos and then go to Vodia app click on scan. And there would be a button that lets you choose the photo from the library.

this.

In the next version, we are coming with a new login procedure anyway. When the user gets an email, she will essentially use passkey to create credentials for login that will work across different apps and devices. After clicking on the link, Safari will open and make the magic happen. This will work also in cases where the user opens the email on the Mac and then installs the app on the iPhone. Then when installing the app, it will work right off the bat. No need to QR codes anywhere, and there is no need for a password. Saving QR codes and then importing them in the app (essentially breaking any security and making it available for all apps with file system access) will look backward.
