I remember when QR codes made their entrance. I also remember b/w television.   Hmm. . .what does one have to do with the other? More things to ponder.

The last time I used one it was a sticker some company sent me to put on a literature box and if people scanned it it took them to my listing. It was pretty cool but I was not about to buy into it Allen Lomax .

no, I pretty much left them in the last decade where they belong.  Although recently I did have to put a QR reader back on my phone to get a new programable light bulb to work.  I had to read a code to download the software because the instructions were NOT in english.

Allen,

We never liked QR codes.  They were hard to read, you had to stand perfectly still, and needed different apps for different ones.  Aesthetically, they look horrible, and it is outdated at this point in time. A

Quantum Digital does still send out 'just listed' and 'sold' postcards with QR Codes on them. When I use their postcards, I actually do get more hits/calls on those than the other, designed cards I send out in farms. 

I don't use QR codes anywhere else though.

Thank you to all who responded.  I am so glad I asked the question.  I was told several years ago by a fellow agent that I should be using them.  I never did.  Our local MLS still has the app on the website so I thought I might be missing out on something.  Thankfully, to all your truthful comments, I don't have to spent time learning and implementing another technology.   Thank you Thank you Thank you.

QR codes came out and were supposed to be the next best greatest thing!!

I believe they have taken the path of the "floppy disk" or the "payphone booth" on the street corner...

My personal opinion on where to put them, in the trash bin...

FYI - I had tried them with no noted results.
