QR codes, or Quick Response codes are 2 dimensional bar codes that can be read by smartphones.

Newer smartphone models allow you to scan a QR code using the camera on your device, other phones will need to have an app downloaded.

iPhones and iPads

If you use an iPhone or iPad you'll find instructions for scanning using the built in camera on the Apple website
