The widespread use of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have increased the popularity of QR codes. QR codes can be used to easily digitize and share contact information such as phone numbers, URLs, email addresses and other types of data. QR codes are a popular choice for inclusion on marketing materials such as brochures, posters, business cards and more, often leading the scanner to a web site that is optimized for the smaller screens of mobile devices.
