I've tried cleaning my camera and everything else I can think of, but it takes me 30 - 60 seconds to find the exact perfect lighting for my FS scanner to focus in and actually read bar-codes for some reason.

Hi there,

We're not sure why the barcode scanner isn't working for you as we're not aware of an issue. What device are you using?

S7 Edge. It's all about the lighting. Sometimes it will click right away, but many times I have to twist/turn to get the lighting just right for the scanner to capture the code. I use a scanner on my lottery app and it clicks right away every time.

Looks like I may have just been holding items too close(?). When I hold the items out farther, my camera focuses quicker and grabs the item quicker.

I agree - it was far better a couple years ago. It seems it takes forever to grab the code. Galaxy S6 Edge

My scanner doesn't work at all. Nexus 5X. I tried all kinds of lightning, distance from camera, different barcodes - doesn't work. As much as I'll miss some functions I have to go back to My Fitness Pal. Their scanner works like a charm.

Adding a food that is not on your list of food.
If you mean it's missing from fs, then you can add it To your cookbook!
