    Still learning to use my new Reverb. I seem to be having an issue with scanning barcodes and QR codes. It won't do it. I have tried two different, highly rated, apps and neither work. They just won't come into focus enough....very blurry and grainy....even when using the app that forces the front light to come on.

    Close up photos, even on macro setting, aren't really all that good either.

    Any suggestions?

    try using the camera shot button on the phone not the screen.
    half press the button auto focuses the pic, then fully press the button after it beeps.

    Tried that. The QR code or barcode remains blurry and out of focus and won't scan. So frustrating.
