QR codes can be linked to any digital content. Ever since they found their way into the world of mobile marketing, their applications grew exponentially. From a simple redirection to a website or a vCard to a list of social media profiles or a means to make a mobile payment via PayPal; the list is endless.
But what if you want the digital content that is linked to your QR code to be fully customizable? Well, enter Mobile page QR codes.
Why use Mobile page QR codes?
As the name implies, this type of QR code content shows up a page upon scanning it. A blank page, mind you. Wait, what? Yes, Mobile page QR codes are meant to be fully customized by YOU by inserting:
- a piece of text,
- embedded videos, and more.
You can edit your text’s appearance by changing its font, choosing its color, adding bullet points, etc. As if that weren’t enough, if you have coding skills, you can also edit the entire content by viewing it as HTML.
Aside from that but not less critical, Mobile page QR codes are mobile responsive by default. This means that you will not have to add some extra strings of code to display the content correctly across all devices (smartphones, tablets, desktops).
Having all of these options at your disposal will definitely help you create a robust and unique mobile page for your QR code. Robust in the sense that you will be able to insert multiple pieces of content rather than one. Unique since you will be able to customize it to your heart’s content.
How to create a Mobile page QR code
Static QR codes only allow you to create a “Text” type of QR code content. Meaning you will only be able to insert, well, text. They can be useful for general product information. However, they can not be updated or changed.
If you want to be able to do so, as well as insert images, videos, and more, you would have to use a dynamic QR code generator like uQR.me. You will be able to fully customize the mobile page as well as the QR code itself, and track and measure its statistics.
All you have to do is choose a plan that suits your needs, create the QR code, and set its type of content as “Mobile page.” After that, it is up to you! Once you are ready, you can download it to start using your QR code in no time.

How to scan a QR code
QR codes, much like any barcode, need to be scanned. Don’t worry, you don’t have to use a dedicated scanner; you can use your trusty smartphone!
The one thing that you need to have is a means to decode the QR: a reader app. These can be downloaded for free and are available for all operating systems. But you might not have to download one since some mobile operating systems and browsers already come equipped with a scanning feated. Activate it from the corresponding settings, and you’ll be able to hover your smartphone’s camera over the QR and access its content!
