What is a QR Code?
A QR Code is a two-dimensional bar code created by Japanese corporation Denso-Wave in 1994. The "QR" is derived from "Quick Response", as the creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.
How do I read a QR Code?
If you have a smartphone, go to the app store and search for a QR code reader. You’ll find several free apps. We like the AT&T QR Code Reader. Run the app and then hold your phone’s camera over a code to read it. Most codes you’ll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page. These codes link offline information to online content. A QR code can be printed on packaging, magazines, and promotional items to enable smartphone users to go directly to a web page without having to type in the web address. These little pictures truly are worth a thousand words!
