I used to use this for all my Amazon purchases around holiday time but Amazon has blocked them off and rendered Fake Spot useless. I guess it still works in browser for other sites but that's a huge blow. It doesn't appear you're trying to work around it so the app is pointless for myself and many others. It was nice while it lasted.

I reviewed items I bought from Amazon that were defective. I don't know if this app is addressing the product or the seller. All of the items I returned either didn't work as they should, were not as described (eg wool merino was not merino), or were packed carelessly and arrived damaged. Fakespot mostly ranked the reviews same as Amazon. For one item (merino sweater) they reported only 25% of reviews were okay. All in all, I don't think this app earns the space it occupies on my tablet.

Just not a good app. The scan takes such a long time, which would be fair enough, but this app makes you sit there and wait for the scan to complete (could be minutes long), and if you go to another app in the meantime you instantly abort the scan. App has no interface or functionality of its own. Copying and pasting the product links into their website manually through a browser is literally the better option over using the app. Just poor, period. No point to its existence.
