Hi, Has anyone managed to find a barcode scanning app that's able to work on a Nokia C7? I've tried a couple, but because the phone is fixed focus and unable to focus sharply enough at close range, it doesn't work.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

I've considered buying either a C7 or 701, and the only workaround I've seen is to stand at the minimum focus distance and use the digital zoom. (Which will likely look very silly to passers-by, hehe.) Perhaps in the future, Nokia will not cut so many corners?
I have wasted a lot of time with the same problem.
The result is, you cannot use C7 or other phones without auto-focus as a barcode reader.
I am very disappointed because of paying a rather high price.
Function must be more important than weight !
I arrived at this post searching a different but related problem...
For scanning codes, although the camera has fixed focus, first you must play with the settings for brightness and contrast. Besides, you have to keep a minimum distance from the code, since the camera has no "macro" adjust.
I had the same problem and I solved it this way. The programs I have used are "Upcode" and "ShopSavy"
I have a C5-03, but the issue may be the same.
Hope this can help. Regards
