ScanLife gave a webinar entitled “Understanding Mobile Barcodes” hosted by Verizon on March 3, 2011. It covered a variety of topics including:
2D barcodes, or QR Codes, are quickly growing in popularity to easily link physical objects to digital content. We just released the ScanLife browser extension to make it easier than ever to create a 2D code from anywhere on the web in a one click.
Why use the extension?
The extension works for the same reason why many people use tool bars instead of actual websites – speed! This tool makes it faster than ever to create, display and download all major 2D barcode formats (QR code, EZcode, and Datamatrix) from anywhere on the web.
Get the extension now for any browser:
Once you have the file installed, it should be very simple to use, but you can look at some detail instruction right here.
