The Intrigue Of The QR Code

What is a QR code you ask?  QR stands for Quick Response.  A QR code is a barcode similar to a Universal Product Code, only with a combination of squares and squiggly lines.

It is used to program URL’s (web addresses), text, email or virtual card (digital business card) for use in smartphones to promote a product, service; or give information to the public.

The catch is you have a QR scanning application (app for short) to take advantage of this emerging technology.

Here’s what a QR code looks like:

If you don’t have a smartphone, the web address for this code is: http://jameshcbrown.webs.com/ which is my personal website.

To make QR codes you have to have QR creation software, which you can download or purchase online.

I hope this article gives you a better understanding about how QR codes work.
