The Rise of QR Codes

Evidence of increased uses of QR code is everywhere. You can find QR codes in magazines, TV commercials, ads, business cards, consumer products, and the Web.  Also, teachers are now finding creative ways to use QR codes in the classroom.

Mobio’s report shows that QR scanning traffic increased 4549% since Q1 2010. Driving this increase in part is a rising number of consumers with scanning capability of their mobile phones. Consumers who added QR scanning capabilities during Q1 2011 increased nearly 10 fold versus new users added in Q1 2010. That is an increase of 938%. Exposure and familiarity with QR barcodes, driven by big brand advertising is the leading cause in user registration.

Queaar did an excellent job of creating an infographic “The Rise of QR Codes.”  The infographic is quite interesting and it can be viewed  here.

One Response to The Rise of QR Codes

    藉著QR碼的應用,以往人們要記著又臭又長的網址,把他一字字輸入自己的瀏覽器,才能連往自己想要的網頁,但是,智慧型型手機的興起,使人們免除了這項苦差事。只要拿起手機,打開APP,往QR馬上掃描,便能馬上知道裡面所隱藏的資訊,加上QR碼是整齊的方塊,能夠使得廣告頁面能夠更簡潔、整齊。
    不過QR碼的APP也是有限制的,當你的手機的相機無法自動對焦,可能就無法享受這項優質的服務。
