How to use tags

2011-06-11 19:08

You can access more City Press content by scanning the barcode-like icon – known as a tag – on Page 1 of today’s paper with your phone.

Here’s how:
Step 1: You need to download the Tag Reader application to your cellphone. In your phone’s browser go to and click download.

The application is 1 MB and it’s free but you will have to pay your cellphone provider’s data costs.

Step 2: Tags work only if your phone has a camera. Your phone’s model determines whether you will snap or scan the tag.

Go to the Tag Reader (in downloads or apps on your phone). Hover over the tag as if you’re going to take a picture.

Some phones will automatically scan the tag but with others you’ll have to take a picture of the tag.

Step 3: Watch it.

With many smartphones the clip will play automatically. If it doesn’t play automatically go to the media centre on your phone and click on the video clip you’ve just downloaded to watch the content.
