Add Barcode scanner to mobile app

It would be great to have the option to scan food items in vs manually entering data.

        I am so bummed there is no scanner for android. :( Going back to MyFitnessPal . . Really disappointed since I bought this.

      • R. H.R. H. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        any news on when the Android food scanner is coming for the fitbit app?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Had anyone found out any information yet as to why there's no scanner for android users?

      • pmarattapmaratta commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        My scanner doesn't work on my android app. Very very frustrating I used my scanner all the time when I used myfitnesspal to manage my calories not having the scanner is so inconvient. So far I love my flex just wish there was a scanners option for my app

        My wife and I currently both have fitbit flex. I have an iPhone, and she has a Droid. the Barcode scanner works on iOS app, but not on the driod app. Can anyone else confirm with platform? Are there droid users out there that have the barcode scanner (in fitbit's app) working?

      • MichelleMichelle commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The body fit app has the food mastered. Why would fit bit take the scanner away without explanation?

      • KhoganKhogan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Glad I'm not alone! I was so excited to see the scanner, and now it's gone! Please bring it back!

      • Bobbi Bobbi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Where oh where did the scanner go? Please bring it back Fitbit! We loved it so.

      • MaggieMaggie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please put the scanner back and please fix the exercise screen. I can't add new exercise or scan barcodes for food.

        I'm having the same issue; I was able to use the barcode scanner for a few days, but it's now disappeared.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I had the same problem I used the scanner on 6/29 but tried to use it on 7/1 and it disappeared! It's no longer on my phone or ipad. What happened? It worked great. I WANT IT BACK!

        Same here - fitbit said I could use a scanner but it's not there. My wife has it on her fitbit one

      • HeidiHeidi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Same here had the scanner and now it's gone. Fitbit help center is no help!!

      • Daphine DevineDaphine Devine commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I thought the bar code was an excellent addition (more important than the GPS and exercise features), but now its gone. What happened?
