QR for

A couple of months ago I wrote a post about QR codes. Recently I needed to find an APP for QR codes to a Smartphone running Windows Phone 6.5. Not that it is hard to find at all. There are a lot of them but I will share a couple of links with your guys here:

Free QR Scanner Apps:



Personally I use BeeTagg, because it is free, fast, simple and easy to use. It is available for almost any phone you might have like: Apple, BlackBerry, HTC, LG, Nokia, Sony Ericsson and a lot more.

The thing is that these codes are getting more and more mainstream and a lot of people and companies are beginning to see the possibilities with those smart codes and the fact that almost everyone today have a smartphone and bring it with them everywhere. Another thing is that the codes make people curious, because you don’t know what is behind the code before you have made a scan with your phone. The way the apps works is that they use the camera in your phone to scan those QR code and translate them to a link or whatever the code represents.

    Not everyone Thomas… I sure don’t, I’m so behind the times. Don’t even have internet access or text. Looking into the texting though, probably not the internet access. I did get an iPod Touch though so I have WiFi with that. Aren’t you proud of me? Moving up in the world.

    Now that’s interesting because I figured that just scanning these might eventually start running into problems as well. Sounds like this can do the trick.

    Thanks for sharing and sorry I haven’t been by in awhile. Hope all is well.

    Hey Thomas,

    Great article and resources. I have an iphone and there are just as many options for scanners.

    QR codes are definitely beginning to dominate. I just recently learned about them and now i see them everywhere.

    Even on billboards!
