What is this tool?
It is a free QR code generator tool that allows you to create QRcodes for a variety of different purposes.
The first option is a URL, this could be a link to your website or app on the App Store. When a person scans your Qr code they will be given the option to visit the given link. Remember to use itms:// instead of https:// in order to go to the App Store.
Vcards are used to automatically add contacts on your phone. This Vcard QR code generator has a bunch of the most common information you will most likely want to store such as name and number. A great case use for this would be on business cards.
The text option is the most basic. When users scan the QR code they are presented with whatever message is contained within it. Simple, but there could be many uses for this.
Email is to allow the user to automatically open up a new message with your email address and a subject already added. If you would like the user to be sending mail to multiple email addresses simply add one after the other separated by commas e.g. [email protected], [email protected]
SMS opens up a new text message with your number and the message they should be sending. There are many great uses for this, especially things such as donating to charity, where the user has to send a specific message in order to donate. It removes some of the hassle and human error, making a QR code an essential asset in whatever campaign you are running.
This tool provides three ways of using your newly generated QR code. The first is to download a png image to save for future use. Secondly, using a <img> tag containing a base64 encoded version of the image to directly onto your website. Thirdly using the SVG code, which can be put directly into your HTML or imported into popular editing software such as Photoshop or Illustrator.
