Downloaded new version. Apparently all the times they sent this problem to IT didn't help, STILL does not work. While several other apps actually focus the camera and work well. You would think, with all the $ the state has made on the lottery, they could find a real programmer somewhere.....
Using app on Samsung Galaxyb Tab2 with Nougat (Android 7.0). Accepted all permissions but scanner does not work. Black screen and will not scan tickets. Current version of app works fine on Samsung S7 Edge phone.
Scanner is worse than before. Just to test, I downloaded a plain old scanner app that only reads a barcode and shows the data. It reads the ticket barcodes almost instantly, not playing with the focus like the lottery app. I thought it was my phone, but the other app demonstrates it IS the lottery app that sucks, not my phone.
Working fine til the forced update. Note 5 JULY 2017 Had to update again and got the same result, scanner NOT WORKING 12/11/2017/ Working great again, did note 5 update and resubmitted all permissions
The scanner worked fine for me, and this will be great for an initial check; I'd suggest to do a second scan, at a store just to be safe. Also, make sure to perform the scan in a well-lit room, otherwise the program might have trouble seeing, and scanning the barcode properly.
I loved this app until the update, which made it pretty much useless for me. Bar code scanner no longer works, so now I only use it if i'm looking for a store that carries a certain scratch ticket. Before the update, the scanner would not ever focus, but it I could eventually figure out how to focus it. PLEASE FIX THE SCANNER!
Improvements to the scanning functionality for devices with Android 8 Oreo.
