You see an interesting card or poster that has both a QR code and a website address. Which are you more likely to use to get to more information?
What the phuck is QR?!?!!
I'm illiterate. WTF is QR?
Quite frankly, I haven't a clue what a QR code is. Whoopsy
URL only because QR codes aren't standardized. What works with one reader doesn't with another. I wish the camera would just recognize them automatically without using an app.
I wonder if Google Goggles sees QR...
Truly hate qr codes, find the the whole premiss annoying
But they can be soooooo much faster.
It depends when is online I use the automatic link to the URL but if it's in print I use QR code with my iPhone.
What the heck is a QR code and how do I use it?
Many people don't know what URL is let alone QR. That will change in time as the the younger generation educates the older generation.
I'm pretty sure everyone who has used a computer with internet access knows what a URL is.
I don't know what a QR code is.
It's those little white squares with weird black patterns on them you see on ads sometime.
I'm too hipster for web addresses.
Me too, I only use carrier pigeons to get my information.
The QR is most likely going to send you to the URL. =)
Yes, and in the process also collect info from your phone which will be resold for marketing purposes.
That isn't the code. That is on the app. Everytime you use an app you are trusting that company with your info. I scan QR and barcodes all the time with the Buycott app. No fear... =)
I do not trust QR codes
neither I have free will
The QR if I could actually use it. Therefore the URL would be copied down and looked up later.
QR codes are eyesores.
I never used a qr app, and usually I google instead of typing a URL
The qr code is most likely to suck up your personal data for marketing purposes. I never use them.
Hmm....never thought of it that way. Good point.
QR code. I don't have to type anything, so I don't have to worry about typos. Plus they're kinda fun.
QR seems to easy...where's the fun in that
QRs are so few I keep the app out of sight so it's faster to pull up the browser and type it in. And even if I wanted to use the QR I have trouble getting them to focus and read.
Why waste room on the iPhone that could be used for photos and a tune or two.
In an ad, the QR code because it is likely to take me to a page relevant to the ad, while the URL will likely take me to the company's home page which may lead me to tmi if the ad is all I care about.
The fact that I don't know what a UR code is should be saying enough.
Scroll down a little bit for an explanation.
Indeed, I don't know what a "UR" code is either, but your comment is common, especially true if you're on your first smart phone or feel like a nerd taking pictures of strange runes (of sorts) in a magazine ad.
If I have my phone handy, the code. Because its likely just going to lead me to that URL.
What is a QR code?
See FindFyre's response and mine, just below this.

It's a "quick response" code. You scan it with certain apps on your phone, and it takes you to a website. They look like this:
One of those funny-looking square things, with a black and white pattern. Looks like random dots, but in fact, it's coded to take your phone or device to a web site.
If I have the mobile device close at hand I'll use the QR code (Qrafter app), but if I'm closer to the computer or already have the browser open on the iPad, it's faster and easier to just enter the URL. So usually the URL.
Qr codes are kinda fun.
QR codes are creepy.
I like that.
What's a "QR"?
Thank you... Someday I'll enter the 20th century(-:
I hope you enter the 21st century, too! :)
QR - because "I have an app for that" - LOL
Depends whether or not the web address is long.
Ooo, good point.
