27 Personal features QR Reader

Posted:

Among its many features, 27 Personal has a QR Reader.

QR codes -- funky white and black boxes packed with tiny dots -- are starting to pop up everywhere.

"It's a lot like a bar code except they're squares and you can store information in the black and white dots, so you can keep a lot of different things in there, telephone numbers, URLs, links to web sites, addresses, even photographs and any kind of text you want," said Charles Jolley of Strobe, Inc.

Once you download 27 Personal, click on the "More" tab and you'll see "QR Reader" -- click on it and just hold your phone up to any QR code to grab information.
