Goo.gl URL Shortener Extension
One of the extensions I use most often is the Goo.gl URL shortener. It instantly creates a URL shortener and QR code in one click. No more copying and pasting your long URL in more than one tool. Watch the video below to see just how easy it is to use.
Reasons I prefer the Goo.gl URL Shortener extension:
1. It creates a URL Shortener in one click.
2. It creates a QR Code in one click.
3. You can track the number of people who have accessed the site via your shortened URL/QR code.
Give it a try!

App of the Week - Inigma
There are quite a few QR Code readers out there. By far my favorite is Inigma. It reads very dense code and works much better than other code readers I have tried. It also has a history option to keep up with what codes you have already scanned and a favorites option to bookmark frequently scanned codes.
Remember we are here to help!
