BeQRious.com would like to highlight two new services that included QR codes into the mix.
Although it might be considered more low tech than some of the participating startups in the conference, FoundIt has a great and useful idea: create a service that would make it easier for people to retrieve their lost valuables.
For as low as $10, you can get 12 stickers and a year’s access to their website. To use the service, you just affix the stickers to your phone, wallet, and anything valuable. If these are lost, the finder can contact the service through a phone number or go to the FoundIt website and enter your FoundIt member number. Both pieces of information appear on the sticker.
FoundIt will then contact you or give your the finder’s contact information so that you could get back your lost item.
The stickers also have a QR code version and are very durable. FoundIt claims that even if you accidentally put in an item with a sticker on it in the wash, it would remain there.
Yapp wants to make it easier for just about everybody to be able to create their own mobile apps. For now, Yapp is focusing on providing tools to create an events-based mobile app. So if you have an upcoming wedding, birthday party or bar mitzvah, you might want to make it extra special by creating an app for it.
Understandably, these apps are for limited audiences only: your friends and family. The last places you would expect to find these apps are on Apple’s iStore and the Android market. So how do you go about distributing these to your friends and family?
A QR code could help. When you send out invites, you could affix a QR code that would direct your friends and family to the app’s download site. This way, your guests would have an easy way to get the app downloaded and installed on their phones.
If you think that your friends or family member would not know a QR code if they see one, you could also invite them to download via e-mail or give them a short Web URL.
