I prefer the previous app. Easier on the eye. Thus one wouldn't scan an item I could scan in the older version.

Why the new app? Why not just update the old app. Too bright. NEEDS dark mode. No lists anymore. Feels half of what it was. Pathetic. This is a downgrade not an upgrade. Doesnt even remember the mode you choose. It resets every time you load the app. And takes 3x longer to open than the original app. Its so bad uninstalling and using old app. If you end old app i will go elsewhere.

Such an awesome app. Really like the new look and feel of the new app from the previous version. It helps me meet my fitness goals and I love the energy switch and gluten filters. Keep up the good work guys.
