    if you dont get it on the first scan most of the time, it locks up for some reason. Gotta love beta stuffs! It does work. And if your doing it off of a PC, it will prob be a touch more difficult due to your phone and screen having different refresh rates. causes the screen to "scroll" and when it tries to capture, you get lines that make it not read :/

    i suggest trying on a bigger photo, or even try printing them out or something, if its that important.
    Fallen, broken. Simply dissolved into an incomplete thought.
    An empty shell, cracked, and disfigured. With no remorse,
    I have been blinded by the darkness. With no disdain,
    I have received my punishment. And with no haste, I await them.

    There's been a couple of bar codes that didn't work for me. But for the most part no problems. Haven't experienced any resets due to it either.

    Most of my new bbm contacts were added via barcode, so it should work...

    That was me, Watkins.

    A few things I have noticed about the 2d Barcodes.

    The larger the picture the better.
    It also works better portriat than landscape.
