|QR codes have not seen the universal popularity that mobile technophiles originally hoped for. Now that Shortcut is on the scene, they may be gone before they get the chance.|
In all my years on the Warrior Forum, I have never liked and have never posted a 'death of' post. However, the title seemed appropriate for this post, unless, of course, I used the term 'demise' as the author of the article above did.
However, for mobile marketers this is an important issue, as most have done a lot of research and promotional work for incorporating QR codes as part of their business offerings.
Having read this article, I'm tending to agree with the (as yet) single comment posted on the site in response to the article:
|This is a limited alternative to but one of the myriad of uses of the QR code, and it speaks to the general public’s still limited knowledge of what QR codes can do/be used for. Newspapers and print media are going the way of the Dodo, yet this is going to “kill” QR? Not bloody likely…|
Just curious what others think about this?
