    Just wanted to say thanks to admin for the update, and mention that it’s working great for the foods I’ve tried it on.

    Glad to see such great such great responsiveness from the cronometer group!

    Amanda,

    When you go to add a food you should see a barcode scanner icon. Select that, and allow CM to access your camera. If it doesn’t ask go to settings to do that.

    Let me know if that answers all you questions.

    OK so I found the barcode scanner- but it doesn’t recognise anything I’ve tried so far- does it work for barcodes in the UK?

    Mary,

    We use Nutritionix. Here is the link to their database: http://www.nutritionix.com/database

    It doesn’t state “UK” on the front end, but it may with a greater look. We will note it here from our end and I would ask for you too also ask Nutritionix from your end as well. The more they hear the better it will be for all of us!

    Thanks

    Frank

    Sorry to revive an old thread but I can not find any way to scan using the phone app. I am at the Add New Food page and there is nothing here except manual entry.

    You will find it from the diary page. Go to enter a food like you always do. To the right of the search bar you will see a barcode icon. Click that to scan.

    Best regards

    Found it. I was looking in the Add New Food page, not the enter food page.
