QR Codes

A QR Code can include phone numbers, text messages, V-Card data, HTML links or even plain text. Once scanned, your phone or QR enabled device will translate the information and open the appropriate program to use the encoded data. The unique properties of QR Codes allow users to scan codes when they’re upside down or even wrapped around a curved surface.There are many different QR code scanning utilities available for the different smart phones on the market, many of them free. QR codes are extremely popular in Japan (where they were invented), but are just starting to catch on in the US. As they become more popular, more and more users will add theses utilities to their phones, and it is likely that eventually most smart phones will ship with some type of QR reader installed.
