Google aims to introduce something new to the US market with a slant of Japanese, where the most popular retail shops on Google Maps will come with a QR code which can be scanned in by a camera-equipped phone. After being read, the codes will take the phone to the store’s Place Page, offering users to peruse through any available reviews, favorite the business or perhaps even gain something by getting coupons. This service currently works with numerous Android-powered handsets (no brainer there), although iPhones are supported as well as long as they have an application which reads QR codes within).
