How to scan Jerry

Jerry’s patches scan best when viewed head-on with the camera about 5 inches (12.5 cm) from the plush, and centered in the view!

Having trouble scanning Jerry’s patches? Here are some tips:

  • Make sure you are in a well lit room
  • Try tapping the patch on the screen to focus the camera
  • Turn on the flashlight for low light conditions by tapping the flashlight icon
  • The patches read best when they appear about 1 inch (2.5 cm) on the screen of the phone. Try moving the phone closer or farther away from Jerry to accomplish this.
  • If the patches are really shiny, try tilting them around!

You can also use one of the three guided modes to scan Jerry!
