Recently QR codes have seen a massive rise in popularity. The codes’ ability to store information and be directly scanned through smartphones has made them useful in a number of ways. One of the web services currently making good use of QR codes is uQR.

uQR is a simple and free to use web service that lets you share anything on the web using QR codes. Basically the website gives you a public profile that has two parts: a URL and a QR code pointing to this URL. When people scan the code, they are taken to your uQR sharing page where you can share almost anything: specially formatted text, your vCard, a YouTube video, or any other URL of your choosing. Things you share on the profile can be changed anytime.

You can print out the QR code and paste it anywhere in public. This way you will be sharing material with everybody who has the ability to scan the code and reach your uQR profile – an interesting idea indeed.

  • Gives a new way of sharing texts and websites.
  • Lets you share/embed YouTube videos.

  • People can scan the QR code through their smartphone and be taken to your sharing page.
