Just installed this app. So far 10 out of 11 things have not come up in the data base. So i don't even know how well this will work. Its ok.
Good but could be better More products are needed. Also some products are in there but not associated with a barcode. Would be nice if we could associate a barcode with a particular product that exists as well as report inaccurate barcodes.
Doesn't work in Canada, even for Walmart products Didn't recognize UPCs on items that I bought at Walmart and am pretty sure are also sold in the US. (Tried Great Value Crisp Rice 525g; Quaker Instant Oatmeal High Fibre Raisins & Spice 425g 10pk, Equate Original Mint Antibacterial Mouthwash 1L.)
Very useful Good guide has great information on product safety and corporate responsibility. The search isba little inflexible, but the barcode scan works very well and it's handy for checking products while shopping.
Great for non-food items Great product information on consumer goods. However, I would not recommend this app for food products. I would expect foods with GMO ingredients would rate lower than organics, but that is not the case. Rates solely based on nutrition, which is useful, but should also account for genetically modified foods
Awesome, just needs more products I love this app. It has a lot of good info about product's environmental, health, and social impacts. My only issue is that, living on Guam, many common products here are "regional" and therefore not included in their database (yet). They've been great with their customer service and said they are always adding new items.
Fixed scanner incompatibility for some devices.
