TagMyDoc basically allows users to use QR codes as a means to share and provide access to documents. For example, during a presentation you want to provide your audience with immediate access to your presentation using their smart devices.

No need to type in lengthy URLs or key words. You can even download their scanner app for your Apple device and scan away. I used my Android scanner and was able to seamlessly access my document. I can easily see how this tool might facilitate the use of smartphone technology in both the school and the classroom.
