Barkeep – Scanning Tips: Some Barcodes Don’t Scan - Occasionally some barcodes just don't scan. It may be because the barcode is extremely long and narrow and curves around the bottle too much - the barcode recognition package that is integrated into BarkeepApp might be unable to recognize it. http://ow.ly/n4skJ

Barkeep – Scanning Tips: “Zoom-in” Slowly – If holding the camera still isn't scanning the barcode, then start out with the barcode filling the viewing area at about 50% size. Then slowly move the camera towards the bottle so that the barcode increases to 70-80% will help. http://ow.ly/n4sgI

Barkeep – Scanning Tips: Hold the Camera Parallel to the Bottle – The camera should be parallel to the bottle. If the camera is tilted at an angle, it skews the barcode and can make it difficult for BarkeepApp to recognize. http://ow.ly/n4seW

Barkeep – Scanning Tips: Keep the Bottle Still – We personally have trouble holding both the bottle and iPhone or iPad still at the same time. It will be easier to place the bottle on the counter and hold the camera up to the bottle. This works better than trying to hold both at the same time. http://ow.ly/n4rEF
