Lessons Learned:

Lessons Learned Many QR code apps use internal browsers that did not properly render our site There are many situations you should review a URL before allowing it to be launched, but we skipped this step Leveraging third-party tools/apps saved us lots of time and money, but leaves you dependent on them Photo integration was the most complicated part; iOS 6 should alleviate some of this
