I didn’t expect to start such a controversial thread!
Hi John,
Not a contraversial thread, more a very interesting topic.

As Phillip has said, there are many bad experiences with QR codes. Many factors were behind these – timing, technology and poor promotions.

I’m aware of the “outdated technology” and the “future is NFC” arguments that are floating around but I believe we are going to see both technologies find their place on smartphones as each has its own strengths and weaknesses.

Here is a very short summary:

QR Code vs. NFC

In a nutshell I think in the near future we will find NFC used in-store and around check outs while QR codes dominate out-of-store in print and in signage.

What ever happens, retailers who ignore the communications revolution that is occuring around smartphones are likely to have a short future.

Regs,
