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.
7. If you are still having problem, please contact support@idearidge.com We can't help you if you don't contact us!

Pretty cool - does the job nicely!

ForgivenDad

It scans and it shows the info (just like it says) - coupon information at the ready. You have to make sure you have the right barcode type selected - and follow the instructions. Once you do that you get quick and easy information on the coupon details. We use this app all the time now to sort and use our coupons when getting ready for shopping at the store...

To all the idiots...

In case you didn't read the description, auto-focus is required. If you dont have it then it work work. Simple. (maybe try the lite version first).

I have the app and it works wonderfully!
