I'm online to get some apps for my HTC touch and it sais to download directly to scan this code and it shows a picture being taken of it . well I took a pic but it didnt work... how do i get my phone to scan the barcode?
You're phone isn't actually taking a picture, it's just scanning the barcode. you need a program on your phone to do this. i used i-nigma. it's free and really easy to use. just go to i-nigma.com to read about it, or you can go to i-nigma.mobi on your phone and it will figure out what kind of phone you have and send you to the link you need to download the program.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

Here is a list of the top ten Android Apps I think are absolutely necessary to fully experience an Android-based cell phone. Of course, this is my personal opinion and other people may have differing views. Some are fun, some are practical, some are just way to neat to pass up. The following apps are in no particular order:
ShopSavvy: uses the phone's camera to scan a bar code for any product. Brings up prices online and locally (if available) for that product.
Shazam: ever listen to a song and didn't know who the artist or song title is? Hold up your phone mic to the song, and the program will be able to identify it for you.
WaveSecure: protect your phone's contact information in case of loss or theft. Allows you to remotely lock and even wipe your phone. Back up contact information, SMS, and call logs online. Restore from the phone or remotely. Free until January 31, 2010.
Google Places: will use your current location to pull up restaurants, banks, hospitals, attractions, shopping within a couple mile radius. Provides you with maps and locations, reviews, and even the direction to go.
AppsInstaller: sure, most of the apps you get will come from the Android Market, but you may find apps (with an extension .apk) backed up or as a direct download. This app will allow you to install .apk files stored on your flash card to your phone's memory.
Facebook: the official (although not program by) Facebook app for Android.
Barcode Scanner: Been to an Android website on your computer and wondered what that the little box made up of little squares is? That is a QR code, and it is just like a UPC code that you would scan in the grocery store. QR codes have information encoded in them, and the Barcode Scanner app will use the phone's camera to scan it in. Useful if you find an app online from your computer. Scan the QR code with your phone, and the phone will take you straight to that app in the Market ready for you to download and install. QR codes can also be used for personal information, ie, use it like a business card, and websites.
USA Today: a news app that is setup just like the newspaper.
Trap!: just a fun and simple game where you have to fill in a playing field by swiping left/right or up/down. Avoid the balls, look out for bonus and tools to help you on your journey.
Instant Lyrics: as you are playing a song with your phone's music playing, Instant Lyrics will pull the song's ID tag, look it up in the online database, and pull the lyrics on the phone.
Again, this is my personal opinion, but I feel that this will give new users a good idea of what Android is capable of.
Barcode Scanner is required to read the QR code. To get the app, open
the Android Market and start a search for "Barcode." You'll see several
options, but ignore all of them and scroll down to an app labeled "Barcode Scanner" and download the application.
A barcode scanner is normally a program that will use your camera on your PC to scan a barcode, either a QR code or product bar codes and some may even show best prices online for the item scanned. These scanners are popular on portable devices such as android phones and iphones.
Sounds like maybe a program corrupted something, my best guess is to just hard reset it. I know its hard losing everything but what the point of saving it if it never works anways. Hold down the power, talk, and end buttons when the phone is off, this should bring up some directions on the screen saying press Volume Up to hard reset the phone. After thats complete re-download the programs, that should help. Goodluck!
