How to Use Mobicip with QR Codes

SUREN on February 22, 2012

This question has come up a lot lately, especially in schools. Teachers would like to provide QR codes for students to scan in order to visit websites, or perform specific searches, or provide clues for a virtual treasure hunt (yes, this is true). Of course you can use Mobicip with QR codes. Read on to learn how.

1. When you generate the QR code, make sure to prepend "mobicip://" to the URL. For instance, to generate a QR code for google.com, you would use mobicip://http://www.google.com. See the example below.

You can then save the QR code image and print or embed it on your website or blog to share with your students.

2. Make sure to download and install Scan - one of the most popular free QR code reader apps - on the students' iPad or iPod touch.

3. Launch Scan. Point the camera on the QR code provided. Scan will launch Mobicip and open the URL pointed to by the QR code.

4. Scan also stores the history of previously scanned QR codes. The student could open the history and re-launch the QR code at any time.

Thats it. Happy QR coding with Mobicip and Scan!
