    Anyone else with an Evo having this problem... I'm using Barcode Scanner (Barcode Scanner - Android app on AppBrain )

    When it first starts, it finds a QR code just fine, and prompts me with 3 options..

    Web Search
    Share via Email
    Share via sms

    Both share options work fine, but the Web Search does nothing at all.. it simple returns me to the camera as if it's going to rescan the barcode but it never locks on after that. Restarting the app catchs the barcode again but still no response when pressing the search... is there some other setting that's not letting it access the browser? Or is the application bugged on the EVO?

    Mine works fine. Web search runs a Google query for the scanned product number, as expected.

    Hmm I've noticed that the button changes text...
    When it says "Found URL" the button says "Open Browser" , that works fine.. and loads normal web URLs, and Market URLS.

    I'm trying to find the QR code that gave me the problem.. but I remember the button said "Search Web" and not Open Browser, so perhaps searching doesn't work...

    Have to find some codes that provide that text I guess...

    Possible it was a QR code for a badly-formed URL. URL got sent to the Browser, which said "wtf is this?" and sent it back.

    I've used Barcode Scanner on many, many URLs (in fact I use the QR add-on for Firefox) and have never had any problems with a properly made code.

    I had the same problem. My SM would do shop savvy just fine and I remembered it has a 3.1mp camera. I reduced my EVO camera MP to 3MP and it works great.

    Hope that helps.

    Seems like the uber 8mp camera on EVO confuses shop savvy @ 8MP

    Hmm I haven't played with the camera much... is that a Camera setting or a Shop Savy setting to reduce MPs? I've not seen an option labeled as such (Though I've not looked very hard in all honesty)
