We've noticed a few users of our iOS app reporting problems scanning barcodes on their iPods (no issues on iPhones). Typically, really long scan times and/or failures even in good light conditions.

This is something I also observed occasionally and was unable to figure out the reason, since the Goodreads app doesn't make any distinctions between iPods and iPhones and runs the same code on both classes of devices. Well, it turns out the problem was introduced by recent changes in the low level scanning software we use.

I just wanted to acknowledge this problem, apologize, and announce that it should be solved in the next release of the app. Thanks for your patience!
