QR Codes: What are they?

You will soon start to see QR codes on all of my marketing and advertising.   

Get used to these little images!

 

Definition from Wikipedia:

A QR Code is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code), readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera phones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be text, URL or other data.

Common in Japan, where it was created by Toyota subsidiary Denso-Wave in 1994, the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. QR is the abbreviation for Quick Response, as the creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.[1]

Soon to come:  click on these little images on each of my listings to see virtual tours, directions to the home, etc.  You may will need to download the application on your smart phone in order to view the QR codes.  iPhone apps include TapReader, NeoReader, iCandy, and RedLaser.  I downloaded NeoReader on my blackberry and it works great.    Download to your iPhone now to view my QR code above!
