I'm sure it's a great app, but when it changes what you type, refuses to give you any info as to what the product originally said and will not let you remove or edit anything in your pantry it begins becoming cumbersome. I have something in my baked goods section incorrectly labeled trash bags that I have no clue what it might be... maybe add better editing skills please and a new rating will be placed.
Updating my review based on receiving an email response from the Chefling folks about my issues (I sent an in app feedback email as well). You actually can delete items by swiping left on it (I thought there was no manual delete), and some further fixes are coming in a future update. Hopefully when that rolls out, I can update to 5 stars!
All I wanted was an inventory of what I have in my kitchen. I scanned the barcode on a bag of sugar and it says champagne and other items I scanned came up different too.
Feature set is everything I want. Unfortunately, it is trying to automate too much. Typing in pantry or shopping list items has it trying to guess what you want as you type. That becomes a train wreck when it guesses incorrectly. Especially when using swype keyboards that use it's own set of heuristics. Integrated with Alexa and when trying to add distilled water to the shopping list, it gets added as Watermelon with a note of distilled water. I suggest that if an exact match isn't found, then add what was said. I'll continue using my current mechanism of Alexa to evernote through an IFTTT rule until these issues are resolved. Hopefully these will be resolved so I can start using it and increase my rating. Keep up the good work guys, it looks promising.
I was excited to try this, so I started scanning EVERYTHING only to realize half an hour later that it was a waste of time. 😔 The expiration dates are way off and the items are labled wrong with no way to edit them! For example... Sunny D is put down as an Orange in produce! Worcester sauce was scanned and came up as Dave's hot sauce??? I was really hoping this worked.
Love the whole concept. The recipes looks yum and very easy to follow. I also dont have to worry about forgetting the ingredients as I can add all the things that I needed to my shopping list with just one tap, very convenient.
Expiry date bug fix.
