2D TAKEOVER. . .
There’s no two ways about it. 2D barcodes hold potential of almost Biblical
proportions. Mainly because of the way they’ve so quickly, become seamlessly integrated with current mobile technology.
Revolutionizing the way information is consumed.
They hold such resonance, because not only can they hold phone numbers, text,
photos, URLs - pretty much anything you fancy . . . but they can be "scanned" using a 2D barcode scanner, mobile computer or camera – and Apps that come as standard on most iPhones and Smartphones of course. The future’s here. 2D Barcodes have revolutionized the way information is consumed by your customers and clients, on the move.
"Quick Response" (QR) Codes:
Here’s another incredibly popular 2D barcode, that’s perfect for storing data to be reinterpreted. You may well have seen them without even noticing, but they’ve really taken off – along with the worldwide takeover of smartphones, Android and iPhone based apps. QR codes are now being used worldwide. They do their magic once their 3 or 4 anchor-points have been scanned with said mobile device.
It’s nigh-on impossible not to have noticed these codes on many consumer products in the UK. They’re square like QR codes but are usually anchored by just two solid lines, the far left and far right, forming a right angle at the bottom left corner.
