Mobilize your data

Our mashup QR code maker has been updated. It is getting closer and closer to the state he was originally assigned to. From the day one we saw it as the tool for the content mobilizing.

Mashup QR-code maker is an easiest way (as we wrote already – well, yet another attempt to present an easiest way) for the mobilizing of user-defined content. Here are two tasks at least. At the first hand we need to create a mobile view for user-defined data. And what is important of course we need to do that very simply. After that we have to present by some way this view for our mobile users. Actually, QR code generator mashup solves these tasks exactly.

As soon as the web user types (or copy-pastes) some content the relevant mobile web page will be created automatically. Btw, mashup automatically recognizes links in your text and converts them into hyperlinks too.

The latest version of QR-code mashup lets you add some local document to the content (e.g. photo, video, data files etc.). So you can share for example some local saved video data for the mobile users.

And a reference (URL) for this fresh mobile web page will be presented as a QR-code. So as soon as mobile user scans this code, he/she will get your info (an appropriate web page) automatically.

One new element – mobile users can share created mobile pages over plain old SMS. So it is very easy to create some viral distribution.

E.g. the simplest use case: just type (paste) as a content some URL (link) to the page/file (e.g. video, presentation, sales materials etc.) you need to share right from your mobile phone. Mashup creates for you a mobile web page with this link. You can bookmark this created mobile page right in your mobile browser and simply send it by SMS to your friends / partners etc.

All in all it is a simplest way for the content mobilization. As you can see it is just a copy/paste process. There is no need in programming/developing skill at all. And QR-codes solve the distribution problem.
