What are mobile codes?
Maybe you have seen them around. They are starting to show up in print, on products and on the web. They are often referred to as "mobile tagging." But mobile codes, also known as QR Codes*, are simply images that can be captured by modern smart phones either using their camera or scanning software common on Android and other devices. Typically, Mobile codes contain contact information, a web address or a text comment. All of this information can be shared, stored, or an action such as dialing a number can be performed. They are a quick way to navigate the web and to instantly get data into your mobile device.
