QR Codes are becoming more popular as more people switch to a mobile platform for browsing and interacting with the internet. QR Codes are images that can be placed anywhere in the real world, scanned with a mobile phone device and then linked straight to a web page or website homepage. They work well and scan almost instantly unlike previous software that scans barcodes and you have to stand still for many seconds until the software can pick up the barcode detail and bring you to the right information about the product.
It can be pricey to get codes, but now you can pick up one for free that links directly a website home page. We have our own one, and we have attached it with this article so you can see it in action. You can use an App such as Microsoft Tag in order to read the code. New devices created within the next year or so will automatically include the recognition most likely in order to bring more people to the world of mobile browsing.
