Beginning today, The Oklahoman is using QR code technology to allow newspaper readers to bring their paper to life. QR codes -- quick-response codes -- can now be seen in the right rail of all the section fronts in The Oklahoman and within selected articles throughout the paper. Readers with smart phones or iPod Touch devices can use standard code-reader applications. After scanning the codes, they will immediately see a web page with multimedia elements that help tell the whole story. Think about that for a minute. Your newspaper can literally start talking to you. With a newspaper and a smart phone, you can now see every video, every photo gallery and every document that we store on NewsOK.com for our online readers. You can also comment on the article or share it with a friend. And with this technology, you don't even have to get up and turn on your computer. It's all right there in our QR codes. Kelly Dyer Fry, editor of The Oklahoman, says this addition to our print product reminds her of a childhood favorite, The Jetsons. "We don't have flying cars," she said. "But guess what? We have talking newspapers." If you're not yet familiar with using your phone or iPod Touch to scan QR codes, you'll be amazed at how remarkably simple it is. There are plenty of applications for your device that will effectively scan these codes. But if you own an iPhone or an iPod Touch, all you really need is The Oklahoman's app from the iTunes store (it’s free). We built a scan-code reader into our app. It gives you instant access to scanning in the codes and seeing the multimedia elements. However, if you don't want to be familiar with how to use these QR codes, that's fine, too. Nothing will change for you. You can continue to read the paper as you always have. And you can continue to use NewsOK.com as you always have. But we are trying to find solutions for our readers who want everything at their fingertips. We know The Oklahoman's print readers like to hold the newspaper in their hands. And we know that a lot of those readers also want to interact with our content -- videos, photos, commenting, etc. These QR codes are a bridge for those readers. Try it. Scan the code above. In just a moment, our editor will be talking to you. And she’s not even a Jetson.
