- What is a QR (quick response) code?
- Basically, a QR code is an image URL.
- Technically, a QR code is so much more than just a URL. Once snapped, it can link you to a description of something, other images or even a movie trailer, GPS coordinates, etc.
- How do I use a QR code?
- You need a QR code reader on your phone, like the one available via http://reader.kaywa.com/, or your phone may come with a pre-selected QR code reader.
- Snap the code (take a photo of the code).
- Your phone will then read the code and link to whatever information the QR code is carrying.
