What is a QR Code? How do I use it? 

A QR Code is a two-dimensional barcode that can be read by smartphones. The barcode will take you to a webpage that will display your next clue for the Pot O’Gold Scavenger Hunt. Most smartphones come equipped with the ability to read QR codes, or free apps can be downloaded from your cell phone provider’s App Store.

QR Codes for IOS/Apple Devices:

Quickly add a QR Code reader shortcut to your phone’s control center (the menu that appears when you ‘swipe up’) by visiting Settings → Control Center → Customize Controls →Add QR Code Reader.
