Overall, pretty handy when sorting recyclables from trash at home. But to submit feedback in the app, you have to needlessly take a photo of the product that you just scanned--what's the point of that? I have done that, however, to suggest corrections for recycling instructions at our local landfill, but I have never received a reply for any of those corrections and the instructions have never been corrected. Seems like they are failing to use the app users' local knowledge.
