How to share my flipbook with a QR code?

This time we are describing the most recent option for sharing your flipbooks using a QR code that your clients can scan by any mobile device with a camera and access your flipbook within seconds!

But before we show you how to share your flipbook this way, let’s explain what a QR code is.

Simply speaking, a QR code is an image with black and white squares on it. The pattern of squares represents the data that is readable by a smartphone’s camera.
