My friends know that I'm not a fan of QR (Quick Response) codes. By the time I see a QR code, determine if I want to scan it, open my mobile phone, open the application to scan the code… and actually scan it – I could have typed a web address in. I also think they're ugly… yea, I said it!
Waxay umuuqataa korsashada QR code is quite a challenge. 58% of those surveyed weren't familiar with QR codes. 25% of those surveyed didn't even know what they were! In the defense of QR codes, it's not all bad news. People will use QR codes when they're expecting a discount and other industries are utilizing them to effectively retrieve data.
A few of the examples I've seen that I thought were good uses of a QR Codes:
- Makhaayada Atlanta dhexdeeda, liistada waxay adeegsadeen lambarrada QR ee akhristaha si ay uga raadsadaan macluumaad nafaqo oo dheeri ah oo ay kaga jiraan menu-ka khadka tooska ah.
- Shirka Webtrends, kaamirooyin ayaa la dhigay fadhi kasta oo shirar ah si loo soo qabto macluumaadka calaamadaha booqdaha. Tani waxay kooxda u oggolaatay inay aqoonsadaan fadhiyada ugu caansan.
- Udiraya rasiidhada iimayl ahaan kuwa loo dirayo. Si kastaba ha noqotee, barcodes waxay u shaqeeyaan si la mid ah sidoo kale lambarrada QR. Iyo kumbuyuutarradu waxay ku badan yihiin xarumaha tafaariiqda.
Maxay yihiin waxqabadyada waxtarka leh ee aad u aragtay adeegsiga furayaasha QR?
I also think we're on the verge of utilizing scan and recognition technologies far more advanced than QR codes.
