Mobile Technology 101

have provided a detailed guide to help you understand and learn how to use the technology available in your smartphone to get the exclusive savings and rewarding content featured in this magazine. This magazine is loaded with mobile coupons, exclusive savings, videos, picture galleries, opt-in forms, survey forms, enter to win promotions, social media invites and much more. We used a combination of the following technologies to make this engaging and creative content available to your mobile device. Get those mobile scanners ready and download some mobile coupons! QR or Quick Response Codes are a square two-dimensional barcode that can be read using a scanning app downloaded to your Smartphone . Once you download a reader, the phone's camera acts like a scanner, allowing it to "read" the barcode and reveal the content embedded in the code. Digital Watermarking - Invisible to the human eye, Digital Watermarking Technology allows users to embed digital information into audio, images, video and printed materials in a way that is easily detected by computers and digital devices. Digital watermarks are invisible barcodes. You embed digital information in pictures or behind text, creating an invisible hyperlink from the printed page to online content. Readers can't see digital watermarks, but they are easily detected by our Smartphone cameras. For best scanning results, scan 4-7 inches above center of image in a well lite area. (Source: Digimarc) Augmented reality (AR) is cutting-edge technology that allows for a digitally enhanced view of the real world, connecting you with more meaningful content in your everyday life. With the camera and sensors in a smartphone or tablet, AR adds layers of digital information – videos, photos, sounds – directly on top of items in the world around us. (Source: Layar)
