Using Quick Reference QR Code in Your Website and Marketing Material

Cell phone users in Japan rely heavily on a technology called QR Codes (Quick Reference Codes) in their daily life.  The cell phones equipped with scanning capabilities such as a built-in cameras can quickly scan the bar-code image that include small boxes and lines representing all types of information.  This QR code technology was invented by Toyota automobile company in mid 1990s to easily and quickly scan parts and manufacturers information in their factories.  QR codes quickly became popular among the Japanese public, especially the mobile users due to ease of use.  DoCoMo, a large cell phone network provider in Japan spread this QR technology across Japan.  Since then, the use of this technology spans from instantly receiving information about upcoming events, URLs, contact information, product information and more.   Read More

Incorporating MP3 audio player with Adobe Business Catalyst Web Apps

Recently, I was asked by one of my clients, Mondo Zen, to incorporate their audio recordings into the website with an easy-to-use MP3 player.  The client is tech savvy and understands the technology and the content management system (CMS) that is integrated into the Mondo Zen website.  And they wanted to use that skill to update these MP3 Player files.  Designtech Studio, Inc. added a new feature using Adobe Business Catalyst Web Apps to upload the MP3 files, add titles, and descriptions for each file.  The result was a user-friendly MP3 player that works perfectly.  The audio player we ended up using for the site is Adobe Flash player.  Unfortunately, Flash players do not work on iPhones, so we created a link for these audio files to be played on Quicktime player, which is an Apple audio and video player.   Read More
