What are 2D codes?
2D (2-Dimensional) codes are similar to the UPC codes you’re used to seeing on products and coupons, but with some very cool advantages: 2D codes can hold a lot more information – and you can read the codes with any smartphone. Codes can be created (easily!) to embed urls, launch pre-addressed emails or text messages, telephone numbers & contact info, product information, calendar events, geo-locations, and virtually any kind of text; poems, love letters or scavenger hunt clues. Learn more about them in our videos or FAQ page!
Using them is easy.
Just download an App for your smartphone. (Get the 2DCodeMe app for iPhone in the iTunes App Store.) Launch the app, take a picture of the code, and the phone will decode the information. Without any more effort from you, you’ll be linked to a website, a phone number, an email, or to download cool exclusive content, like a ringtone or a video, or a coupon!
Making them is just as easy –
First, decide what you want to link people to. It could be your facebook profile, your band’s latest video, your flickr album, or a love poem! Just click on “Create your own code” link, and enter the information. With one click, you’ll have created the connection from offline to online.
Start using your new code to link offline to online!
Make a T-shirt that links to your facebook status or online profile; put it on your business cards and your info can be instantaneously available; create temporary tattoos with your phone number programmed in; put it on a postcard and share your latest videos... The possibilities are limitless!
