QR code for this blog

You can read this blog on your mobile device too!

Ever seen one of these?  Ever tried to type in a long url into your phone?  Well, these QR (Quick Response) codes are starting to pop up in printed and onscreen media.

It enables a quick scan of further info (eg a url for a website) to a mobile phone. No clumsy phone typing while you’re juggling your bags/coffee cups/kids.

You scan it in using a QR code reader on your mobile device.

1. for iPhones try any of the free QR reader apps.

2.  A code reader already comes bundled on many “non iPhone” devices and it’s called “barcode reader” or the like.

You’ll start to see these codes popping up around the place linking printed or onscreen info to a (hopefully) mobile version of a website.

No typing of long URLs needed!  Just scan it and go to the site!

Already used lots in the USA and Asia, it’s just starting to be used more widely in Oz.
