When week 9 began I thought to myself I am lucky that the rules were changed for play activities because I have no way of participating this week. However, I am here to learn so I started to search the Internet to see if there is any way for me to play with QR codes. Following information I found surfing the Internet:
[Terrence O’Brien] QR codes are used to link information onto a smartphone. To read them you need to install an [App] that allows you to read the code. There are number of [App] available but the most common one is the QR Reader from iPhone App store.
I also asked a question on [Inn333 Group Blog]
- jennifer – I do not have a smart phone! Can I add a QR Code Widget from WordPress so that I can play with QR Codes? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/qr-code-widget/
- sarah Hi there, if all you want to do is read the QR code then there are other options, for example if you download Google Chrome (it’s a browser like Firefox or IE) you can add the QReader extension. There are also free online tools to create QR codes – if you do a basic web search you’ll see hundreds of services!
I downloaded Google Chrome and I found the following sites. They are both very easy to use but I like the second one because you can use colour. Yeah! I can now play with QR Codes.
