Create Custom QR Codes for Your Digital Life

QR codes have been all the rage this year for big brands, and now ordinary consumers and small businesses can get in on the fun, too. JumpScan lets users create customized QR codes that combine all your contact information, including social media profiles, for on-the-go sharing.

Think of it as a QR-powered iteration of Flavors.me or About.me especially intended for mobile phones.

It’s also a lot like a next-gen version of Contxts and similar services, but it uses your phone’s camera instead of SMS for a smoother experience with fewer actions between meeting and contacting a person.

As a user, when you sign up for a JumpScan account, you’ll get to create a mobile landing page by entering your contact information. You can add your e-mail address, phone number, Facebook profile, Twitter and Flickr feeds and more.

Once you generate your own code, anyone with a smart phone can snap a picture of the image to be automatically redirected to your own JumpScan page.

Here’s a quick demo video showing how the app works:
