     When the photographed page is not recognized (Match Not Found):

The cause may be any of the following:

1. Insufficient amount of light when taking a photo (taking a photo at dark location)

2. Lack of focus or shaky camera resulting to a blurred photo

3. Captured page portion not supported after all

4. Capturing too near the printed material (very little amount of information left), or too far from it (several unnecessary portions included)

To make the recognition easier, take a photo at a bright location with proper focus (not blurred), and maintain some distance from the page (around 15cm away, in case of magazine or some other printed media).

-    If 3G network is slow, use of high-speed WiFi environment is recommended.

-    Use any of the other 4 fingers aside from the thumb to support the back of your device. Then use your left or right thumb to tap the screen to easily take a picture.

-    Use the zoom slider or pinch-to-zoom the screen to adjust the area for capture on the Scan screen (such as when capturing a far-away poster).
