What is a QR code?

According to QRstuff.com, a QR Code (it stands for "Quick Response") is a mobile phone readable barcode.  In its simplest sense think "print based hypertext link" - simply encode a URL into the QR Code and then point a mobile phone (or other camera-enabled mobile) at it. If the device has had QR Code decoding software installed on it, it will fire up its browser and go straight to that URL.

A QR code/barcode reader app will generally be needed in order for a smart phone to be able to read the code.  If you don't have this app already, here are a few popular versions

  • QR Droid
  • ScanLife Barcode Reader
  • QR Reader for iPhone
  • QR Scanner
