Alphabet Thursday - "Q"

"Q" is for Quirify where you can generate QR codes. What is a QR code?

QR Code
A QR code is a small, two dimensional bar code that is easy to scam with your mobile phone. Most of you probably already know this, but I'm technologically challenged and  just discovered it on the Internet looking for a different word for Jenny Matlock's, "Alphabet Thursday" .

If you scan the bar code above, you'll be able to download "Horse Pucky" onto your mobile phone. That is, of course, if you have absolutely nothing better to do or if you've had a tad too much of the bubbly.

While walking around town, you can whip out your mobile phone and scan a QR code on a poster to get information about an upcoming event, and then book tickets right from your phone. I think that's kinda' cool.

Get "quirified" by going to where you can get your own barcode for your blog or website.

Thanks, Jenny, for the "Q" challenge today. I learned something new. Well, new for me anyway.

That IS pretty cool! Right now I just have a stupid phone.

You commented on my St. Lucia post. I just got back so I'll be posting more photos. I've not been to Grenada or St. Vincent. I wonder what they are like. My husband and I would like to visit a variety of Caribbean islands. So far it's St. Thomas (brief), St. Croix, Saba, and our favorite St. Maarten which we've visited 6 times.

Thank you, Pamela. I think getting that on would be too hard for me to do but I would like to have it.
Is there an app to download?
Will it work on an I-3 GS phone?

Your horse, Spencer, is pretty nice looking.

beam me up scotty, this planet is drowning in horse pucky. I looked at the qr then at my iphone, then I looked at the QR, decided life too short for this crap and went outside to play in the sand. ~lightly
