This page allows you to convert long URLs into a 2D barcode (mobile code), using services from Yahoo, TinyURL and Nokia. These barcodes are read by most mobile phones. It presently supports QR codes and Datamatrix.
You can do the conversion on this page, or grab a bookmarklet to convert URLs on the fly. Publishers can add a button to their site that provides users with a customised code for their page.
1: Online Conversion
Please provide the target URL. You can drag and drop a link or page onto the input.
2: For Browsers
If you want to get links onto your mobile, cell or Handy, you can't bank on publishers being thoughtful enough to provide a magic button. Instead, you can use a bookmarklet to do on-the-fly conversions on any page. When you click it, a 2D barcode for the current page will pop up; just click anywhere on the image to close.
Test it out - click the link! To install the button on your browser, just drag this link onto your browser's links bar. (Alternatively, right click and bookmark the link.)Mbarcode
