Review from Caitlin Aldahondo
Does what it says it does w/o useless permissions The only app I've found with zero permissions - because why would this need them? [SEE EDIT NOTE BELOW] The list is helpful, but don't expect it to cover every produce item in the grocery store. Thanks for such a simple, informative app! [EDIT: oddly, since the new update the app needs access to USB drives, my files, and the internet. Why the change? Knocked off a star because of that alone.]
The lists are not referring to the nutritional facts of food. Not the plants are bad, but the way they're grown and treated. If you grow them yourself or buy organic, they're actually good for you. Therefore this list makes no sense.
This is a list to use when shopping at a grocery store or local market- it is not referring to homegrown or organic foods. It makes it easier for consumers to see which are the top rated worst food in terms of herbicide, pesticides and GMOs in commercial, non-organic foods. Therefore when people rate it one star saying it makes no sense they fail to realize they aren't using the app for it's intended use
Gmo's are listed as safe foods. Corn is number two on the safe list and papayas are listed as well. 98% of the papaya in the US is gmo. I think those of us who would download this type of list don't want to eat pesticides or gmo.
Super to know which plants are more likely to be poisonous
Very useful information Use this, especially if you have kids.
