    Hello!

    I've had my tattoo for about a week now, but I still can't figure out how to scan the QR codes from webpages and such, do I need an app for it? Please help:)

    Thanks! I have downloaded a barcode scanner from the internet, since the "zxings" is invisible on my market (an anoying problem for many apps on tattoo), but it doesn't work well enough, Maybe it is the camera and the lack of auto-focus that is the the problem.... Can't seem to find a solution

    Hello, for sure Tattoo's camera is without auto-focus, so it means that you have to move manually the phone in order to "manual-focus" the code.

    Moreover you must have enough light in the environment.

    Normally you have to keep your phone at around 10cm from the code, I've reached to make it.

    I didn't have any fortune with linear barcodes though

    I've had success with zooming on the in on the QR codes. But without zoom, it didn't work, because it was unsharp or too small. A shame it won't work irl while there is no zoom ;P
