With improvements in mobile phone technology, (especially the use of phone cameras & apps ), their use spread quickly in Japan, USA & Europe as a way of transferring information to a phone without the need to type in details. QR codes can hold a range of information: URL’s for website addresses vCards for contact information Text Messages Phone numbers Locations using Google maps SMS 255 characters of text Their use has increased rapidly, in June 2011 according to one US study, 14 million mobile phone users scanned a QR code or a barcode. 58% from home & 39% from a retail store. 53% of the 14 million users were men between the ages of 18 & 34. To read a QR code, simply start the camera app on your mobile phone, point the phones camera at the code till the software has captured the image and the information will be read. Depending on the type of information the app will then display a web page, a map, a contact etc. If you are using an old camera that doesn’t read QR codes, Apps are available that will do this instead.
