Using QR codes for referencing online resources can significantly ease the burden of data entry on cellphones. URLs can be quite long and prone to input errors and predictive text input methods are often not particularly helpful in entering URLs. By using QR codes in print materials, users can access online resources simply by snapping a picture of the code.
Therefore QR codes can be utilized for quick and easy access to online resources in print, e.g. magazines, posters, books, flyers or print versions of webpages. One could think of QR codes as printable hyperlinks which are applicable wherever an online resource is referenced in print. Considering that QR codes can also be read from TFT-displays they could also be used on websites, e.g. for referencing a mobile version of a website.
Ads could link directly to additional information about the advertised product or an order page and URLs in an article could be directly referenced. Looking beyond webpages, you could print a URL following the tel-URL-scheme containing your phone number on the back of your business cards and it would be possible to directly call you by snapping a picture of the code.
