FAQs for QR codes for app stores

QR codes can link to the download page for your app. Many modern QR codes are dynamic and can detect the device that is being used to scan the code and take the user directly to the proper app store for instant download. Companies like Flowcode offer analytics that allow you to keep track of which devices are being used to scan your codes and where and when they’re being scanned.

There are many options online for QR code generators that make it simple to create a QR code and link it to the download page for your app. While some generators put a limit on the number of scans, others offer codes that can be scanned an unlimited number of times so you can place it in as many places you think will be convenient for potential users. Companies like Flowcode allow you to create a QR code with unlimited scans for free.

Nearly every modern smartphone and tablet device has a camera capable of reading QR codes. By opening the camera and aiming it at the code the device will automatically scan the code and produce a link to the download location of the app. Companies like Flowcode offer dynamic QR codes that will determine which device is being used to scan the code and direct the user to the proper download location.

Download codes for apps can be placed nearly anywhere in digital or physical space. They can be included in emails printed onto flyers, posters, stickers, and merchandise. As long as the QR code generator you’re using offers unlimited scans, you can place the codes in as many places as possible. Companies like Flowcode offer analytics that allow you to know where and when your codes are being scanned so you can adjust your strategy accordingly. 

QR codes provide a means to access an app in the physical world. While you can manually enter a link printed on a flyer or sticker or other physical surface, it takes time and it’s easy to make mistakes. QR codes offer instant access to their intended destination with far more ease and far less potential for mistakes, making it more likely that potential users will download your app.
