    Something is really goofy here and i've searched but can't find anything on this problem.

    No matter what bar code scanner i install, when i go to scan, the picture is very distorted, and the orientation is really bizarre. it's hard to explain but it looks in the window like the camera is leaning way back, and it doesn't move like you'd expect. it's almost like everything is backwards. i mean it's not, but it's very hard to control like that. it's probably zoomed in or something. I can't explain it very well. for one thing it's sideways, not in the right orientation to begin with. but even so, it is so distorted it can't read the code.

    but it will not work right with any bardcode scanner. i can reboot the camera and SOME apps will work one time. then it borks again an does the same thing on all apps. yet the camera program itself works just fine.

    I'm frustrated here, i need to set up an inventory system, and this thing distorts things so badly it can't read any barcodes

    anyone heard of this?

    I'm using a galaxy s4

    cripes. nevermind, 4 hours latger and i figured it out. that always happens. i look and look and look and right after i ask for help i find out myself lol

    it's because i was using a screen rotator program. apparently it rotated the app, but not the orientation of the camera.

    how strange.
