QR codes – the ability to encode data into a picture, is an old technology, but up until now, has never been a native feature in iOS or Google phones. With the release of iOS 11, that has changed. Not that it was very hard to download a QR Reader, it just nice to finally have the acknowledgement the technology deserves.

QR Code SupportĀ – Automatic detection of QR codes is now supported just by opening your camera and pointing it at one. Say goodbye to all those third party QR code apps.

This is mainly a technology solution for never wanting to type in a link manually, a personal pet peeve of mine.

Good uses for QR codes:

Business Card Contact info

Bulletin Board Info

Link to online version of Resume


Curious if you have any other thoughts.
