QR Codes Take Over Dayton City Paper

If you aren’t familiar with the little square box to the left, you will be. This box is called a QR code, (quick response code). The code will allow anyone with a smart phone to be directed towards a link, movie, coupon, game, or website instantaneously. To stay ahead of the trend, Dayton City Paper has taken the initiative to implement QR codes into current and future advertisements, events, promotions, contests and more in the newspaper. To participate, download the appropriate app from your smart phone’s app store. To find the right code scanning app, try searching the app store on your phone for “QR code” or “QR reader.” Depending on the manufacturer of your phone there are usually several free apps. “i-nigma” is the most widely used QR scanning app in the world and they even have an app for most flip phones as well, so if your phone is internet capable please visit the i-nigma site at www.i-nigma.com and follow their instructions to download the app to your phone.    If you have questions about using QR codes in your advertisement or if you would like to place an ad containing a QR code please email us at, advertising@daytoncitypaper.com subject ” QR codes”.
