Our latest survey has shown QR codes, despite being ubiquitous, aren't getting a lot of love from our readers.
To the question Are QR codes over or critical to mobile marketing? 79% answered that they felt QR codes were finished as a useful marketing tool while 21% answered they felt QR codes were still a useful marketing tool.

Having to read all these instructions seems to defeat the purpose.
Seems like clever placement but the point eludes us.
Akward in so many ways.
You can never put a QR too high up.
