QR Codes are an exciting new technology that makes it easier than ever to link the real world to the online world.
A QR Code is like a barcode but can hold much more data. Even better, many smartphones come with built-in software that can read a QR Code with its camera. When the smartphone reads the QR Code, it can then take an action like opening a web page or making a phone call.
Using QR Codes
QR Codes are easy to use on modern smartphones. Here are a few recommended apps for various platforms:
- iPhone: QR Code Reader and Scanner
- Android: "Barcode Scanner" Search for it in the Android Market
- BlackBerry: Go to BBM, choose "Invite Contact", choose "Scan a Person's Barcode"
