When seeking out an app or game in BlackBerry World, you have the ability to scan a barcode using your BlackBerry Z10 or BlackBerry Q10 to quickly access the application on your device.

For example, if you're cruising around the BlackBerry World store on your computer and find something you want to download, you can just fire up BlackBerry World on your phone, scan the barcode on your device and instantly be taken to the app page without the added effort of having to browse or search for said app again.

While the feature itself is dead simple to use, finding it at first may not be as easy. Thankfully we're here to point you in the right direction.

To scan a barcode in BlackBerry World, first open BlackBerry World on your device. 

Swipe down from the top bezel, then tap Scan Barcode

Move your device so the camera can focus on the barcode you want to scan

Viola! Your device will automatically scan the barcode once it's in focus. After it scans you'll be magically whisked away to the application page right on your device.

Here, go ahead and try it on this barcode:

That's all there is to it! You can also use the scanner for most other barcodes as well like the ones on some promotional materials & in stores or restaurants.
