    reinstall the app unless you mean "Vision" included with Bing
    I use this one, of course it now costs $1.99 where I got it free 7 months ago.
    If it's low light this one also has a hard time scanning at times. Vision I never use

    Yeah, I have this issue with my 1020, that said it has a terrible focusing distance....I hope they allow you to have manual focus in the future - you mean the QR scanner built into WP right?

    The problem you described is caused by the minimum focusing distance of the camera lens. you might increase the distance between camera and the object to scan. however, as bing vision does not support zooming feature, longer distance might cause failure of scanning for barcode or QR code due to too small object. In such case, you should try app like "Manual Scan" which is designed to solve such issue when auto scan fails. Manual Scan | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    true, distance may have some influence on this. and you also should find the proper barcode scanning software, that will enable you to scan QR code. also some barcode need to be scanned from diffrenrt direction as well.
