    Has anyone had any luck scanning the square barcodes on print-ads that are supposed to take you to a website for more information? I downloaded the Microsoft version from the app market and I have yet to get it to scan anything....What am I doing wrong?

    The App "Barcode Scanner" is perfect for scanning all barcodes, give it a try.

    I have no problem using barcode scanner for QR's (square barcodes) but if you are, give shopsavvy a try.

    Not all barcodes can be read from my experience.

    I seem to have issues scanning barcodes (with barcode scanner) as well. I dont know why, but it takes a few tries for it to scan anything, I thought the camera button would force a scan but that didn't work so eventually I just gave up.
