I don't understand the scanner. On my phone there is a thin red line but when I put it up to a bar code it doesn't do anything. Am I missing anything?

make sure there's adequate lighting, no creases in the bar code, and no glares. give it 10-15 seconds. My droid takes a bit to focus on the bar code but when it reads it, there's a pretty loud beep. Hopefully that helps

Also, hold it as still as you possibly can.

I find that 95% of the bar codes are not in the system for products up here in Canada. How about down in the States?

About 95% are in the system, even store brand products. I even scanned in my vitamins and herbal tea.

That's cool. I am doing my part to add things as I find them!
