How can I scan barcodes for fatsecret using my notebook? My notebook has a camera as most do these days.

You are gonna have to add a piece of hardware. A bar code scanner via USB or a camera.

Well, since I suggested it, I have to acknowledge that I have never tried using my notebooks' camera for scanning bar codes. I promise to be more careful in future answers.
However, now you have peaked my interest and I will google an answer. I bet the camera will work, it is the software that translates the image and therein may be the answer. I will let you know if I find anything.

Mmm can you download the app? It might work if you can. I have a tablet but haven't tried any apps you have to have the on your phone.

Google "How to use notebook as bar code scanner" Lots of info there. I think I would just buy an app for your tablet that has a barcode scanner included. Would save you a bunch of time setting it up.
Glaun, Good luck.

notifications doesnt work anymore
Me too and I no longer have any "Quick picks" in the list when adding foods. A few other changes during the last maintenance period are also not for the better.
