<![if !vml]><![endif]>Quick Response (QR) Codes are pretty
commonly seen, but maybe not as commonly used.
Tap the app on your smart phone, aim it at a QR
Code, and off you go. Just like that.
If you don't have a QR Code Scan App you can get one
free in about 30 seconds. Search for a "QR Scan" App on
your phone and you'll see them. The one called "Scan - QR Code
and Barcode Scanner" from QR Code City works just fine. Once
you have one you'll be able to scan and read the QR Codes below,
and understand what the hell is going on.
QR Codes contain information ready to interact with
your smart phone. There are lots of websites to create QR Codes,
for free, like QR Stuff.
QR Stuff's QR Code Generator has a pick list of
things you may want to have QR coded and generates the the code on
screen where you can test how it interacts with your phone. Yes,
you can scan right off the screen, even off an email, go figure.
When you find a QR Code that you like, one click starts the
download to your PC where you can add it to whatever your little
heart desires. I have a few ideas concerning that.
Professionally you could direct people to your
website, Facebook, or LinkedIn locations.
You could set up a QR Code making an RSVP
ridiculously easy via SMS (text) Message or email. Your phone
number, or email address, and the exact response you want is right
in the code. It would also be pretty easy, and error free, to
add someone to your Contact list from a QR Code. The QR Code below
can import Name, Title, Organization, 3 phones, email, Website, and
complete address to the scanning person's Contacts.
