AFA Smartphone Resources

The AFA Smartphone App is now available for download frm the Android Marketplace along with thousands of other apps. Our App provides links to member teams/leagues, application doucments and major announcements. We have also included links to other neat apps like "Where is my Car" to solve those parking lot issues when we can't remember where we parked :) More to come..............
To download the AFA's App just click the following.......

Smartphone QR Codes
QR codes have been around for a while, and many big corporations use them. In the past six months, though, small companies in the U.S. have flocked to the technology, thanks to services that let them easily create codes. Meanwhile, numerous phones, including many Androids and BlackBerrys, come with an app that reads QR codes. (Others, like the iPhone, must download the software.) Scanbuy Inc., a New York company that develops and manages QR codes, estimates that 30 million people in the U.S. have a code-reader app on their phone.

Stay tuned for more QR codes from the AFA as we rollout raffles, lottery drawings, videos and other interesting info via these codes. By the way, we already have ads with our code in the NY Jets & Giants and Saints Gameday Yearbook Programs.

To test our code, just scan the QR code to the right with your Smartphone.
