QR Reader: App of the Day

FROM GINA I BELIEVE THIS RAN — CHECKING 1/13

By Peter Baer Galvin (senior anewdomain contributor)

A fast, easy to use QR reader (those square little barcode-like items that are showing up everywhere). It can either scan through the camera, or you can take a photo of a QR code and have it process it later. Depending on the contents of the QR code it will take you to a web site or show you a location in the map application. You can then share the QR data via the usual social media sites or email. It can even create new QR codes that you can then have people scan to convey URLs, email addresses, SMS messages, phone numbers, and so on.
