    LG tribute 5 phone, Andriod 5.1.1
    I installed the Barcode Reader by ZXing and the phone said the app was install. I cannot find it. When I scroll through all the apps there is nothing that looks like a QR or Barcode reader. Upon going to the Apps application to look at the apps, nothing is shown with the name or an icon that looks like what I am expecting.
    How do I find this app and get it started?
    Thank you for your time

    Did you try to download it again? Does the App Store show an Open button for the app?

    If yes, I have the same problem with several apps on my iPhone.

    First time I tried to download load it again the button to install read Installed. The second time it downloaded but I was not able to get it to work. The third time worked. When I showed it a QR on my monitor it did nothing.
    I am trying to get my authorization set up for coinbase.
    I just now downloaded Google's Authorization app since coinbase recommended it. I will know soon what happens. Hopefully that is.
    Edit
    Now I have three readers installed. The google authentication is the only one that "does" anything, and it is an app created just for authentication. Turns our thaat is what I really needed. Now to delete the other two.
    Thank you for taking the time to post a reply.
