Apps and QR codes

Post by ed » Wed Jan 24, 2018 12:30 pm

Anybody know about this stuff?
I want a mobil app and a qr code so people can easily download it

If the app changes on google play, can the qr code stay the same? Gotta print some cards but dont want to have to redo them.

Thanks

Not sure about QR codes as such, but if the QR code is a link to an URL you can have it redirect to whatever the other URL becomes.

If the app changes are just updates to the app it wouldn't change the link thus the qr code.
