Step 5: Generate a QR-code

There are good QR code generators available on the internet for free. We recommend this one:

NB: You should consider to generate a short url before you create your QR code. URL shortening is a way to make a shorter "alias" URL for the URL of your POI, by using a third party service such as http://tinyurl.com. This is helpful because:

  • It simplifies the structure of the QR code and make it easier to interpret/read
  • You can include the short URL in your code sign to support older phones and users with no QR scanner installed on their phone
  • The short URL services counts your "click" and provides you with easy access to user statistics
