Using QR Codes?

Posted by Kyro Sk On 2011-03-10 3 comments

I've just started to get into QR codes a bit.  In case you don't know what they are, they are a visual hyperlink emblem that can be scanned by any modern smart phone/device equipped with a camera and a program for scanning.

I use ScanLife, but I hear that QuickMark is also a good one, as is the one made by Kaywa (they have a service that let's you create your own QR codes, should you need them for marketing material).  All of these apps are readily available from the application store of choice for your device.

I think this is the way of the future.  Soon, URLs won't be used on marketing publication materials, instead the ubiquitous QR code will begin to appear on all media be it print, TV or billboard style.  I even heard that they've been used successfully on the sides of buildings to advertise the commercial space as available with all of the terms/costs.

Grab an app for BlackBerry, any android device, iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad and give it a try:
