Batting .825

Update to initial review below - when I turned off the confirmations in Options/Scan Settings, I started to get results. As far as I can tell, there is no direct route to the scan results from the confirmation screen - each time I chose Yes, there was no page found, and choosing No simply returns to the scan - wrote yourselves an endless loop, folks! And what is the purpose of the confirmation screens, anyway? Seems to be an unnecessary complication. Oh yes, and Boru vodka still scans as Pink Stars Skin for DSi.
So far this app is batting .325. It scanned several items at home and in the store accurately. However, I hit a big fail when it scanned a 1.5 litre bottle of Boru vodka as a pink skin for a Nintendo DSi. Tried again and again, with no improvement. Have not had a successful scan since, including Stop & Shop creamer, Black Box Malbec, Admiral Nelson's Spiced Rum, and Roland Sriracha sauce. Help isn't helpful. I'd love for this to work, but right now I'm underwhelmed.

Does Not Identify Anything?

This used to be my go to Barcode Scanner App for years, but as if today I am deleting it off my iPhone 7 Plus as it will not successfully identify any type of barcode anymore. I switched to 2 others that work perfectly and never going back to this one. Obviously the App developer no longer cares if this App even functions properly anymore based on previous reviews! Bye!

Still crashes

I got this as an update to the older AT&T version and it crashed, would not work. This app is obsolete in iOS 11 as your camera will recognize QR codes in the same way.
