Think of QR codes in similar terms as a Universal Product Code (UPC), except UPC's can only represent numbers. QR codes can be used to represent text, web addresses and other data. A quick app download from iPhone's App Store will enable QR functionality on your iPhone. Aim your camera phone at a QR code, and your smartphone does the rest!
