I hope you tried this before swapping it out, but I figured I'd ask just in case.
That's odd, because I've been just tapping the shutter button all this time to take pictures with my Triumph and it's been working just fine; I can see the camera auto-focus and then snap the picture.
Just for grins, I tried it your way and held down the shutter button; it auto-focused and quietly beeped then, when I released the button, it took the picture. I'm betting this is a feature to enable the Triumph camera to mimick old time SLRs, where you focus for one particular distance and then take the picture with the subject at another distance to create some interesting out-of-focus effects.
At any rate, for the OP, I would definitely take your Triumph back for an exchange. Your camera should auto-focus whether on the camera app or a barcode reader app. If not, you have a legitimate issue.
