Internet Phrase of the Month – “QR Code”

You see the little squares in ads, in stores and on billboards, stickers, business cards, and posters, but you may not be among the millions of users actively scanning these for information.

Once scanned, the QR code navigates the user to a website with special deals or information, a video about the company, service or product, or even be used to place a phone call.

How to use a QR Code:

You’ll need a phone with a camera, and the ability to download scanner applications – note some of these will also scan barcodes.  To find the right application for your phone, search the mobile marketplace relevant for your phone’s operating system. Some popular choices are this Barcode Scanner for Android phones, QuickMark for Iphones, and MobileTag for BlackBerry.

Start your scanners!
