How they work
QR codes, or quick response codes, is a type of 2D bar code that may be decoded using your smartphone with a QR code reader. From being a tracking mechanism for auto parts, QR codes have proven to be very useful in marketing and convenience related applications that is more suitable for smartphone users. In the recent months, we have seen QR codes show up on marketing materials such as movie posters, promotional posters for various products, billboards, flyers, among other things. These have also been seen on newspaper ads, business cards, artwork, and other everyday things.
There are two main things that you have to have when you deal with QR codes:
1. A mobile device ( iPhone, blackberry, iPad etc ) with a camera and Internet connectivity
2. A QR code reader / application
Where do I get a QR code reader?

This is simple, as an example with an iPhone or iPad, visit the app store and search for QR Code reader and simply download the app. The app is free. .
How do you use a QR code?
After you have your reader installed, fire up the application and snap a picture of the QR code. Make sure that your hand is steady and that you are able to include the whole code into the picture. There will be some instances when the scan would fail, do not worry, just keep on snapping.
