How the Smartphone trail works
Since June 2012, South Downs National Trail visitors have been able to scan QR Codes at multiple points of interest all along the Trail.
Visitors use their mobile camera, a QR Code reader App and their mobile web browser to scan each QR Code and connect to a wide range of online content. The content has been designed to be viewed in around two minutes.
NFC Tags and Augmented Reality scanning information was also added in December 2012.
To scan signs you'll need a QR code Reader, AR and NFC Tag reader App, FREE to download from iTunes, Google Play or mobile App stores.
