7 lines of code to go from book to goodreads page :-)

Jonathan Lin | 6 comments we should have a "cool goodread apps" thread / sticky.

Roberto (ralsina) | 12 comments Thanks :-)

We are trying to think a bit outside of the box for our app. BTW: I noticed you have a iphone app: zbar works on the iphone, so you could add this kind of feature, too...

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) I think we were looking at 2 other bar code scanner libs, but this might be better. We're looking into it.

Curtis Schofield (robot) | 39 comments hey i tried this zbar - no luck (os x - so i could only use zbarimg) also gave XING a shot - both with 2 different cameras

seems to be hard to get focus - any ideas how to surmount this?

Roberto (ralsina) | 12 comments Making the image capturer work is very hard. With the webcam you can fidget and eventually get it right.

Curtis Schofield (robot) | 39 comments ahh i understand now - i expect that it is a very difficult thing - especially with blurry photos.
