AT&T Boards the QR Train

AT&T Create A Code

AT&T now has a QR/Barcode scanning mobile app as well as a code creation web app. AT&T Code Scanner is the mobile app. It can scan 2D codes, both QR and datamatrix, as well as 1D codes which include UPC and EAN. AT&T Create-a-Code does what the name implies, it lets you create a barcode.

How it works:

Create-a-Code

You start by going to the AT&T Create-a-Code site. You set up an account with your name and email address, and it sends you a password for later use. You get to use the app without having to log back in. Once you have an account you have to choose whether to create a contact code or a web code.

Create-a-Code Contact

There are a few required fields, but otherwise you can add what information you want to share. Once you are done you get the sample code. See below for the basic contact info for this blog.

A web code is straightforward as well. See the below image:

It looks like you only get 5 codes, so choose wisely. The codes are good for a year and then expire.

If you want to download the mobile scanning app, you can download it from the BlackBerry App World or Android Market. You can also go to http://scan.mobi on your mobile browser.

As I’ve mentioned before, QR codes are becoming more popular. It was only a matter of time before a carrier jumped on board. The code creator is really easy to use. If you don’t already have a preferred method, whether from Google or someone else, this can be a convenient way for you to get started creating QR codes.
