Good idea, but poor implementation. It provides an easy way for conversations to be trolled. Individual privacy appears to be an afterthought, since you can only make your account more private, AFTER you create it, by then going into the settings. Also, there either is no way to completely delete your account, or the option has been well hidden. Oh, and it crashes on occasion, too.

Really neat idea, but very sluggish and annoying to use. Events dont seem to be kept up to date with new information, some of them arent even close to recent. The app consistently freezes due to one popup or another and will not progress past a white screen, until you go to close it and the popup shows up properly. Says it hasnt been updated since 2016, and it shows. Id really like to use this as its been recommended for current boycotts, but in its current state Google is more reliable.

I first tried to scan some local products... the vibration when the app can't find the item is really annoying and I didn't see a way to turn it off. When I scanned some more common items, the scanner worked well, but every item came up with zero supporting or conflicting. Do I have to join a cause? I tried to join one, but that requires an account. I'm too lazy to make an account and add every single cause. Just let me see all the causes a company is connected to.
