Bit.ly Adds QR codes to Links

Posted on Oct 13, 2010

The popular link shortening service Bit.ly (which has billions of clicks on it’s links per month) has just announced that it will allow users to shorten links and automatically turn those links in to QR codes which will lead back to the original link. This is a fantastic use of technology and I can already see tons of uses for this and it really shows that QR codes are going to become more and more popular and widely embraced. All you have to do to add a QR code to your URL is change the end of the bit.ly link to .qr and it generates a QR code automatically.

via Now Bit.ly lets you add QR codes to their shortened links.
