Having Problem Scanning?
****************************
1. See the app in action on YouTube! http://youtu.be/pgMBThycpcI
2. Make sure you have a device with auto-focus camera. See disclosure #1 below.
3. Select the right barcode type from the scan tab. There are both sample picture and verbal description on which barcode type to select.
4. Make sure there are sufficient lighting.
5. Place camera about 3 or 4 inches away from the coupon.
6. Stop and wait for the camera to focus. If the camera still does not focus (i.e. picture still looks "fuzzy"), shake the iPhone/iPad to force focus.
