I'm so glad I found this app. Buying new products won't be as stressful as it was! The only complaint I have is a technical one, the app doesn't seem to keep me logged in and I have to log in every time I open it. Minor inconvenience but it does bug me.
The app offers what I want but it could be a little faster. Thus only four stars. :)
Very cumbersome to operate on Honor 7 phone. Difficulty focusing on the bar codes and out of the three I tried to scan, one just wouldn't scan at all probably because the code was a small one and the app's scanner just couldn't read it from a distance, nor focus if brought closer. The camera itself takes great close ups so the problem seems to be with the app. Focusing was a problem when trying to take and submit photos too. Also it would be helpful to see what exactly is wanted, as it's asking to take a photo of left, middle and right side of ingredients. In practise, it all fits in one photo because of the focusing issue, if I bring the product close enough to just include one of the above mentioned, it just won't focus at all and there's no zoom as far as I can see. Sadly, I doubt I'll be using it when out shopping when a test run at home had so many issues.
Used to be great This latest update has messed everything up, so many bugs. It wouldn't let me log in for ages and I had to delete And reinstall the app then change my password 3x, I had over 150 ingredients saved on my personal list- it took me ages. Now the list has disappeared and everything has a green tick even though so many are unsafe. All my preset lists I had ticked are also now unticked this used to be my favourite app and now it's pretty much useless. I'm reluctant to spend ages typing in the names again.
Plastics Some time ago I set an alert for plastics, was nice seeing the purple face to warn me not to buy. I don't shop often, so I used the app after a long time today and noticed the personal alert list gone. I remember there was a list you could choose from, plastics, vegan, etc. Apparently you can search by ingredient but I don't know the official terms and don't know what to search for. Huge bummer. Also profile picture gets upside down often?? What?! Starting to look for a replacement app.
I miss the personal alerts list I liked the personal alerts list as I wanted to avoid products containing plastic. Now i'm disappointed. Why isn't this feature in there anymore? I want it back!
