Hi SWEETPEACHY!

Our barcode scanner function on the tracking app uses a separate barcode scanning app that must also be on your device. Please check that you barcode app itself is working or download one if needed there are free ones available.

In other words there is no "box" to put the barcode into.

I've tried it several times on several foods and nothing. What I find odd is on other barcode scannes I've used in the past on a phone I had there were 4 "L" shaped areas in the corners and thats where you would focus the barcode and sometimes there was a line that went across the barcode. With this its nothing.

Speaking for barcoding in general, that's all you do. The barcode should come in and out of focus and when the app can read it itself, it makes a shutter noise and gives you the resulting output.

If you're not getting it to read, try holding it closer/further away.

I bought the sparkpeople app for my Ipod touch (4) and I am trying to use the barcode scanner but all it does it look like it does before you take a picture but without the camera icon on the bottom. How do I use it?
