Has anyone been using the 'Barcode Scanner' app by ZXING off the Lenovo market (same thing is on GM)? When I use it my camera repeatedly makes horrible clicking noises to the point where I was worried it might be physically damaging itself. I E-mailed ZXING and they said that focus racking/trashing is a normal part of their software's operation, but I still have a gut feeling that what is going on it not healthy (that or I have a broken camera).
Solved! Go to Solution.

I have had good results with TPT and this one.

@pghFL, That is the same scanner application that the rest of us can't get to work. Does your camera make loud clicking noises and have difficulty focusing? To give a reference, it takes ~1 minute+ to get a read (if it doesn't outright fail) on my TPT and the camera seems to be thrashing the focusing mechanism. On either of my moterola droids (bionic, global2) or an Acer Iconia I get a read in ~2-4 seconds and no unhappy noises. I've corresponded with ZXING support and this is clearly an issue with the TPT. What model # do you have, do you have European or US?
Lenovo, how can anyone be expected to use this tablet for business if it can't read barcodes? This should be an easy fix, just get on it!

Interesting, definitely still not working on my TPT (even with QR codes). Can you list your version? (Settings->About Tablet->Machine type and model). I'm using the 183827U
