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!

Hi everyone. I use a small free weight at work at my desk to work on flabby underside of the arms. But I can't figure out how to list that in the exercise section. Any idea's?

Hi Everyone. Does this site have something on here somewhere that tells you how long it is estimated to take to reach your goal weight you entered?
